Locatie en vrije tijd

Jaipur, the fascinating capital of the desert state of Rajasthan, is one of the best planned cities of its time and is part of the ‘Golden Triangle’ along with Delhi and Agra. The graceful architecture of the city all in the colour pink has earned Jaipur the title of the ‘Pink City’. It is predominantly known for its musicians, artisans and craftsmen. Today, tourists flock to the city attracted by its fine jewelry, varied textiles and sumptuous cuisine. Leisure Activities: A world heritage site, Jaipur is chock full of visual treats and Amer Fort or Palace, the erstwhile official residence of the Rajput Maharajas and their families, is only one of them. It was built of red sandstone and marble over a period of 2 centuries. A must-see here is Sheesh Mahal (Hall of Mirrors), built with tiny pieces of mirrors, to create the illusion of stars for royal ladies who were not permitted to sleep in the open. Jantar Mantar is a world heritage site in itself, featuring the world’s largest stone sundial and 19 other architectural astronomical instruments built by Sawai Jai Singh II, the founder of Jaipur. City Palace, the home of the Jaipur royal family houses a museum where priceless artifacts and royal cenotaphs are on display. Hawa Mahal, (Palace of Winds) is the tallest building in the world without a foundation. Its intricate, honeycomb architecture with 953 windows allows the breeze to flow through it and keep it cool. Jaipur is home to the most fabulous collection of jewellery, you can even buy precious/semi-precious stones here. Textiles, clothes, carpets, mojris (footwear) - all reminiscent of the city’s illustrious heritage, make for great gifts to friends and family. Haathi Gaon (Elephant Village) is where over a 100 elephants are housed along with 7th generation keepers. Here, you can feed, bathe, ride the elephants and take as many photographs as you like.
