Monuments Of Jaipur

From Delhi you can embark on one of the most cherishable sight-seeing tours of Jaipur. This is the city of ancient monuments and forts and surely you will love to see the architectural wonders that trace their origin back to history. The sandstone palaces and forts are stunning and the sheer magnitude of the monuments will strike the moment you see it for the first time. Some of the important forts and palaces that you must see while on a sight seeing tour of Jaipur are Amber Fort, Jaigarh Fort, Nahargarh Fort, The City Palace, Jantar Mantar, Albert Hall Museum, Hawa Mahal, Ramgarh and a few other places.

Amber Fort

Amber FortLocated on a small hill outside Jaipur, the construction of the fort commenced under the supervision of Raja Man Singh and was completed under Sawai Jai Singh. The fort is a fine example of a combination of Muslim and Hindu influence and it is clearly reflected in its architectural pattern. Built in red sandstone and white marble, the biggest attraction of the fort is the "sheesh mahal" i.e. the Mirror Palace. There are quite a few temples inside the fort.

City Palace

City PalaceThe City Palace is a huge structure that combines traditional Rajasthani style of architecture with the classic Mughal art. It has a fine gateway and the marble gate is beautifully carved. The gate has heavy brass doors on either of its sides. Each of the storey in City Palace has a distinct name and each one is uniquely beautiful and different from the other. The entire palace is adorned by paintings, floral decorations, mirror walls and ceilings in a very conservative style. The top most storey is called the "Mukut Mahal" or in other words Crown Hall.

Jaigarh Fort

Jaigarh FortThis beautiful fort is one of the very few well preserved military structures of medieval India. The palace was very much self- sufficient in itself in its heydays. The structure clearly tells that the fort had palaces, gardens, both open and covered reservoirs, granary, armory, several temples, a well planned cannon factory, a very tall tower and a giant cannon mounted on it. The western part of the fort has an extensive wall and there are watch towers and gateways leading into the Jaigarh Fort.

Nahargarh Fort

Nahargarh FortThe fort is situated atop a picturesque hill and it offers a panoramic view of the city from below. Although the fort was initially built by Sawai Jai Singh in the year 1734, it was rebuilt and further enlarged by Sawai Madho Singh in the year 1885. The fort has nine absolutely identical suites and from each of these you will be able to get a wonderful view of the city below. The rooms are delightfully decorated with motifs.

Jantar Mantar

Jantar MantarJantar Mantar is one of the most famous observatories of its time. Experts have often commented that it is arguably the most logical structure in stone. The huge monument was built to calculate the local time, the sun's declination, altitude, planets and calculation of eclipses.

Jaipur is a wonderful place to go for a sight-seeing tour. The variety and beauty of the desert landscape as well as the beautiful palaces, forts and temples will make your tour memorable.
