City Palace :
The magnificent City Palace is in the centre of the Pink City of Jaipur, enclosed by high walls and set
amidst fine gardens and courtyards. Since it was built by Jai Singh in 1728 it has been the principal
residence for the Maharajas of Jaipur and the successive rulers have each added to it. The major attractions
in the palace are - Chandra Mahal, Mubarak Mahal, Diwan-I-Khas, Dilkusha Mahal, Moti Mahal, Sheesh Mahal and
Krishna Mahal, all of which are adorned with exquisite colours and paintings.
Amber Fort :
Situated on the crest of a hill seven miles north of Jaipur is Amber, capital of the Kuchwaha
Rajputs from 1037 to 1728. The city-palace is protected by towering outer walls, a further wall
runs for miles along the hills surrounding the palace. For many, the most memorable part of a trip
to Jaipur is the journey up the palace ramparts, through a succession of vast gates, on the back of
a painted elephant – Maharaja style. Inside are the ruins of a once great palace, a wonderful example
of Rajput architecture, with Mogul influences.
Hawa Mahal :
(Palace of the Winds) Hawa is Jaipur’s most remarkable attraction. Built in 1799, it is situated on the
edge of the City Palace complex overlooking one of the city’s main streets and was constructed to offer
the women of the court a vantage point, behind stone-carved screens, from which to watch the activity
in the bazaars below. The five-storey building is shaped like a crown adorning Lord Krishna’s head and
contains over 900 finely screened windows and balconies.
