After getting picked up from your hotel, your first stop will be Hawa Mahal, which means ‘Palace of Winds’. It truly lives up to the name as the palace stays breezy even during the blistering summers of Rajasthan. This five-story palace strongly fascinates with its pyramidal shape and hundreds of jharokhas (windows).
Next on the list is Jantar Mantar. It is home to brilliant medieval-era geometric devices for tracking constellations, observing the orbits around the sun, measuring time and many other pursuits. Next, you will visit the Amber Fort. The weather-beaten façade of the nearly 420-year old Amber Fort belies the elegant beauty of its majestic interiors.
Before heading back to the hotel, your last destination today is the Jal Mahal or ‘Water Palace’, located in the middle of the Man Sagar Lake in Jaipur with its elegant semi-octagonal towers capped by cupolas in each corner.
