Jaipur Holidays

A point of India’s Golden Triangle, Jaipur is the capital and gateway to the elaborate grandeur of the state of Rajasthan. Here, the streets are populated with locals who still wear colourful, traditional dress and full of breathtaking architecture – the buildings of the old ‘Pink City’ such as the City Palace and Hawa Mahal, are the best known. Painted pink, the colour of hospitality, to welcome the Prince of Wales for a visit in 1876, it is in the old city that you’ll spend most of your time. Founded in 1727 as one of the world’s first planned cities, the streets and alleys of the Pink City today are full of vibrant bazaars selling textiles, jewellery and fragrant spices and a pleasure to explore.

Five Reasons To Visit Jaipur

Amber Fort
Draped across a hillside 11 kilometres outside of Jaipur, the Amber Fort is one of the great hillforts of Rajasthan and is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Built in the 16th century it gives a taste of the life of a maharaja.

City Palace
At the very heart of the city, this complex of buildings, gardens and courtyards is still the home of the royal family today. The architecture is from a range of eras with Rajasthani and Mughal influences.

Hawa Mahal
A pink sandstone edifice, one of Jaipur’s most recognisable, the Hawa Mahal, or Palace of the Winds, allowed the women of the royal family watch the action on the bustling streets below whilst still observing purdah. 

Jantar Mantar
Maharaja Jai Singh had an obsession with astrology and developed an observatory of weird and wonderful instruments that he designed to measure the heavens. Jantar Mantar is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Markets
Jaipur is a brilliant place to hit the markets and try out your haggling skills. Browse the stacks of silver and gold, jewellery, gems, handmade shoes, textiles and all that’s inbetween. The streets of the old town are where you’ll find the best bargains.
