Laid back yet vibrant, the pink city is a delight
BEST TIME TO VISIT IS NOV TO FEB
With touches of old-world grandeur in its forts and Havelis, secrets in its desert, different cultures, cuisines, and identities make Rajasthan anything but boring. And to get a glimpse of it all, head to the Pink City Jaipur. Get a calorie-loaded start to your day at Rawat ki Kachori and later, to burn those off, take a complete guided tour of the City Palace. Post the royal tour, fulfill your love for handicrafts and handlooms — vibrant prints in Bapu Bazaar, exquisite jewelry in Johari Bazaar, blue pottery, juttis, bags, mirror work products, and more, all at a walking distance from the Hawa Mahal. For a tranquil evening head to the Jal Mahal and spend some time under the twilight sky. And to end the night, head for a hearty meal in the form of a Rajasthani thali.
Did you know that four floors of the jal mahal are submerged in the water?
