Top 5 Reasons to Visit Jaipur - Take Note!

There are many reasons to visit Jaipur while on a trip to India. Listed below are the top few reasons to do so.


Abhaneri Step Well

Being the capital city of Rajasthan, Jaipur has always been a vividly coloured space which does not receive much rainfall. During the old days, people had to come up with creative ways to save and retain whatever water that was sent down from above. The best solution to this rainwater issue was constructing a well with 3500 steps that went down to about 13 floors in height. This unusual design helps the people of Jaipur conserve the water while also keeping the water at the bottom of the well cold. This place is a must-visit as it is an amazing example of the construction of days gone by.


Jal Mahal

Jaipur is a place that is full of palaces and castles from the eras before us. There is this one palace that you must go to depending on when you visit Jaipur. The palace located within the Sagar Lake gets submerged when the lake is full of water. Any hotel in Jaipur India the likes of Alila Fort Bishangarh would be able to direct you to this place. You cannot reach this place by roads alone. You have to access the palace with a boat and you will be able to take a look at a few migratory birds while you are travelling in the water. The construction of this building was made with red sandstone and this makes for an amazing reflection in the water.


Sisodia Rani Garden

Though Bangalore is known as the original Garden City of India, if you visit this place in Jaipur you will be just as mesmerized by the guests who take a tour of the great Brindavan Gardens. The precision with which this place has been planted and built is definitely something you must take a look at. Everywhere you turn it is green and the garden is full of flora and fountains making it a cool place to hang out in. This garden can be found a few kilometres away from the main city of Jaipur, and they also surround a palace that used to be a house of a king back in the early 18th century. The architecture and design of this building are as mesmerizing as the garden itself. Since this place is not within the city you must keep aside a day to explore both the garden and the palace leisurely.


Amber Fort and palace

This palace houses some of the most amazing frescoes that are studded with jewellery and diamonds. There is an entire chamber dedicated to art and it is known as the palace of mirrors. This chamber is decorated with millions of pieces of mirrors along with red sandstone and white marble. The Amber Fort and palace are a truly unique structure that stands tall to this day. If you visit the palace and see the walls and the strength of the building, you will realize how it lasted so many centuries. Behind the palace area, you will find a few mountain ranges and the lake which adds to the scenery.


The Central Park

While you're vacationing in Jaipur, apart from touring and checking out all structures and buildings you also need to relax. This park in Jaipur promises tranquillity and calmness. The people of the city use the park for jogging and other outdoor activities during the early morning hours and just before sunset. You can also find a golf course and a lot of other amenities within the park which make it more modern compared to the other parts of the city.
