Jaipur Travel Guide

Hawa Mahal - JaipurJaipur's illustrious pink color symbolizes 'welcome' and was embraced during the times of the ruler Ram Singh II when he expected the Prince of Wales in 1876. The color was selected after several experiments to cut down the severe glare from the reflection of the glowing rays of the sun. Today, the city is a foremost tourist attraction in India because of its superlative forts, grandiose palaces, vivacious temples, multicolored bazaars, pulsating streets and its distinguished pink color to which the city owes its oft-used name 'The Pink City'.

Jaipur City
was conceived and built by the great and mighty king, Sawai Raja Jai Singh. Its name 'Jaipur' has dual emphasis. 'Jai' means victory and is also the first name of its maker. Today, every home within the old city is obliged by law to maintain this uniqueness of the city. Throughout the old city you can see the traditional, marvelous, pink-colored houses with latticed windows lending charm to a scene, which is almost miraculous at sunset.

Temples in Jaipur
speak volumes of the devotion and faith with which they were built and the fragrant air of their vast intricately-carved and designed sanctums seems to be charged with tranquility and peace that corresponds to the soul of the spiritual growth that attracts many westerners to India. Govind Deo ji ka Mandir, was once a massive structure of seven storeys built in 1890 with the sum of astronomical cost of one crore rupees that was a very large sum in those days and accounts for its magnificence. The natural springs of Galtaji and perhaps the only Kalki temple that is closed since the day it has been built, are some other notable temples in the city.

Excursions in Jaipur- While at Jaipur, who would like to miss the chance to experience the three distinct worlds nearby. While golden deserts of Jaisalmer seems to beckon to us by the swirling shifting movements of its shimmering sands, Udaipur is a lake delight with beautiful island palaces that are perhaps the most romantic spots in the world. The blue skies above, the clear waters below and lush green hills around, makes the boat cruise in these lakes a divine experience. Talking of divinity, don't miss to treat your eyes with the erotic sculptures of Khajuraho that has been declared a world heritage site since 1986. The temples celebrate the courtly charms of beauty, sex and creative arts, 'Kamasutra' etched in stone. The places to see are: -
