You will witness this majestic old fort of the Kachhwaha clan of Amber. It used to be the capital, till the capital was moved to Jaipur. You can see the fort built with white marble and red sandstone and looks even more attractive because of the Maota Lake in the foreground. Do not miss out on this beautiful sight!

Later visit the City of Jaipur. Do not miss out on the City Palace when you are touring Jaipur’s attractions. You can witness this overwhelming complex of exquisite palaces, gardens and courtyards, decorative art and carved doorways. The palace museum houses collections of rare documents, armoury, dresses, carpets and miniature paintings.

Walk to the neighbouring Jantar Mantar or Astronomical Observatory made by the Maharaja of Jaipur. This was built in the year 1726 and one of the five such astronomical spectacles built by Sawai Jai Singh. It also makes accurate predictions even to this day. Jaipur is a shopper’s paradise. Most of the bazaars are in an old city with a wide range of things to buy, from jewellery (precious and semi-precious stones and handcrafted silver) to textiles to handicrafts and antiques. No doubt, for an avid shopper “Jaipur” is the choicest of the city to shop and collect memorabilia.
