Jaipur City History :
The cultural hub of India, Jaipur is one of the most enticing and consequently the best selling tourist destinations of the country. In the year 1727 the Rajput ruler Sawai Jai Singh commissioned a Bengali architect Vidyadhar Bhattacharya to design a city to accommodate the increasing population of his existing kingdom Amber. Vidyadhar also lived up to his expectations and designed the first planned city of India befitting the glamour, glory and grandeur of the Rajputs. The city was painted in pink, a color of hospitality, to welcome Prince of Wales in the year 1876. With all the modern comforts of life Jaipur has retained an old world charm. The monuments, telling the tales of royalty, never fail to stir a traveler's curiosity and imagination. Every nook and corner of the city corroborates the its cultural richness. Besides the monuments and culture the accommodation facilities at Jaipur also play a major role in wooing a fair chunk of tourists to India. It offers you an opportunity to have a first hand experience of the kind of life, which the erstwhile Rajput rulers lived. As here many of the royal residencies have undergone metamorphosis to become heritage hotels. But fret not if you do not want to burn a hole in your pocket, cheaper options are also available.

The other attractions like the ethnic Rajasthani delicacies, endless variety of crafts and glittering gems and jewelry are all irresistible. Thus with ample attractions, easy accessibility, and strong infrastructure to cater to the needs of the tourists Jaipur well deserves the place it holds on the world tourist map.
 

Jaipur Tourist Places / Attractions :

Amber Fort :

At a distance of 11 km from Jaipur, on the mighty Aravallis stands the sprawling Amber fort palace. Raja Man Singh started its construction in late 16th century. Few additions were made by subsequent rulers. This palace built mainly in red sandstone and marble is an excellent example of fusion of Hindu and Muslim style of architecture. The strong exterior of the fort symbolizes the might of the Rajputs while the delicate interiors (the fine lattice windows, frescos, finely sculptured pillars) speak about their refined taste.

In front of the fort was the 'mawatha' lake, which sheltered the crocodiles to protect the fort. In the midst of the lake area lies the Mughal style saffron garden. In the fort, the 'Diwan-i-am, the Diwan-i-khas and the 'Sheesh Mahal' with exquisite mirror work catch attention. The technical water cascade cooling system and the sandalwood door in the Sukh Mahal are very appealing. Besides, the Kali Temple is also worth paying a visit.

The most distinctive feature of the fort is the elephant ride that you can opt to climb up the fort but for it you have to shell out some money.


The Amber Sound & Light Show : Essentially a theatre show without live actors. Covers the story of Amber Fort & Jaipur dynasty, with appropriate blend of history, anecdotes, music and effects. Show runs daily in sequence 1st English and 2nd Hindi. English (6:30 pm) & Hindi (7:30 pm) Timings are revised through the year in accordance with the change in daylight timings. The gallery can accommodate 300 persons. Currently in English & Hindi - plans afoot for simultaneous watching in multiple languages. Duration of the show - approximately 52 minutes.

Amber holds the history of a citadel, pulsating with a legendry past of 600 years and 28 kings of the Kachhwaha dynasty, before their capital moved to Jaipur. Through their unique diplomacy of strategic alliances, their valor and strength, the rulers not only established a long dynasty but, in time, also played a part in changing the destiny of medieval India.

Through this Son-et- Lumière spectacle, an attempt has been made to revive the pride of Amber and bring forth the traditions that colored the lives of its people and the pomp that once existed in its fullest form. This musical extravaganza has highlighted the local legends, folklore, with a myriad of music that continues to give Rajasthan its unique identity. The show is a simple attempt to end the silence that had long fallen upon Amber - for the spirit of Amber is eternal. Amber once again springs into life – feeling youthful yet carrying those nostalgic moments that once made Amber a very lively citadel.

Jaigarh Fort :
Overlooking the outlying region of Jaipur and the Amber fort is the 'Victory fort', which sprawls on the top of the hill of eagles (locally called 'cheel ka tilaa'), and represented and reminds of the might of the Rajputs. Majorly a sturdy military structure, it is well fortified by the extensive rugged walls, with flame-shaped battlements, running all around the 3 km spread bastion of early 17th century.

The fierce firepower of its days, and still, the world's largest canon on wheels, Jaivan, is probably the most pictured at this fort. Its 'vital-stats' were enough to keep the enemies off, so the only time it fired was at its dramatic 'test-firing'. The (test-) fired canon ball landing more than 35 km away had a killing effect on many houses and resulted in a lake like formation where it hit. Also, the lake near this canon is a deliberate and a strategic attempt to help the cannoneer escape as soon as he fired it.

Other legends include the huge capacity water tanks that used to treasure the loot of the Rajputs in the warfare. This buried fortune was the source of construction of old capital of Amber, and Jaipur. Presently, the fortune is sill buried in its legendary past, and one can treasure it via…!

Plus, the puppet shows with melodious shriek of the puppeteer and zigzagging waist and body of the puppets; 7-storeyed watchtower, Diva Burj, where the Jaigarh fort towers above all; the military engineering at the canon foundry; museums collections of swords, shields, 50 kg canon ball, too long guns, conks and containers for oil, coins, and wine, maps, photographs, paintings, and howdahs [elephant saddle] and also, once a vantage point to check the nearing enemy the fort is now a tourist's viewpoint to see the snaking walls and the beaten tracks.

Jantar Mantar :
Jaipur is the proud owner of the best preserved and also the biggest of the 5 observatories built throughout the country by Raja Sawai Jai Singh. At first sight it appears to be consisting of weird geometrical figures, built in stone and marble, lying in an open area. But a careful observation will give you an idea of their significance and also allow you to appreciate the genius of Sawai Jai Singh. The words Jantar Mantar are derived from Sanskrit words Yantram (meaning instrument) and Mantram (meaning calculation). So, this observatory is actually a place where huge stone instruments were used to trace the movements of the celestial bodies so that the king could perform his rituals at the most auspicious moment. Like the 'Samrat Yantra', the biggest sundial in the world records the local time of Jaipur to an accuracy of upto 2 seconds; the 'Dhruva Yantra' helps in finding out the position of the Pole star at night and also those of the 12 zodiac signs.

City Palace :
Get awed or get jealous by the flamboyance of the Royal heritage, which, with its tastes and achievements, has been having a pronounced influence on the region and its people. City palace Museum or Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II museum (or SMS museum!!) captures and showcases such a heritage of affluence and social position in its part of the City palace premises, which itself is a royal residence since the 18th century. Strong- and delicate-work of 'those' periods are still resplendent in its clothing, paintings, recreational instruments, manuscripts, chariots, photographs & photography instruments, armoury, and arts and crafts and, of course, the Rajput(Rajasthani) architecture complimented by that of Mughal style, that houses these invaluable valuables. These artifacts have been treasured inside different museums depending upon their type.

Govind Dev Ji's Temple :
Situated in the City Palace complex, the temple of Govinddev ji enshrines the idol of Lord Krishna (along with Radhaji) who is patron deity of the Jaipur's royal family. The image of the deity was brought here from Vrindavan by Raja Sawai Jai Singh, the founder of Jaipur. The architectural evaluation of the temple brings out nothing much to wonder about but still everyday it attracts a huge crowd whose devotion, with which they collectively chant the hymns, is definitely noteworthy. The arties (prayers) are performed 7 times a day and each time the costumes of the idols are changed and bhogs are offered. The activities in the temple reach the peak during 'Janmashtmi', a festival to celebrate the birthday of Lord Krishna.

Birla Laksmi Narayan Temple :
A modern catholic approach to religion is carved on the white marbles and architecture of Laksmi Narayan Temple. It is the gift of the Birlas [leading industrialists of India] to the pink city, hence the name Birla Temple. Placed at the foot of the Moti Dongri [the Pearl hill], the impressive view of the replica of Scottish castle called as Moti Doongri Palace topping the hillock and the calm surrounding alongside the busy road, makes it a cool place to hang out, and is visited especially by the locals.

Hawa Mahal :
Built in 1799, by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh, is the most recognizable monument of Jaipur. The 5 storied stunning semi-octagonal monument having 152 windows with over hanging latticed balconies is a fine piece of Rajput architecture. Originally designed for the royal ladies to watch and enjoy the processions and other activities, on the street below. Now it houses a well laid out museum. The display “Jaipur past and present” is the special feature of this newly setup museum.

Nahargarh Fort :
This comparatively small but sturdy fort at Jaipur was built on a hilltop by Sawai Jai Singh in 1734 to strengthen the defense of Amber. The fort offers a picturesque view of Jaipur. The view of sunset from this place is especially spectacular. Inside the fort are 9 apartments, one for each of the 9 queens of the king. They are arranged in such a manner that the king could visit any of his queens without the knowledge of the other. Legends have it that the fort is named after a prince Nahar Singh whose spirit lived at the site of the fort and hindered its construction. When some special prayers were performed it agreed to leave the place but only on the condition that the fort be named after him. Some say it is called so because the place abounded with tigers at that time and 'Nahargarh' literally means abode of tigers. Anyway, now the place is absolutely safe to visit.
