Most visited places in Jaipur
Jaipur has some of the most visited palaces and forts in India. Many of these are also part of the UNESCO World Heritage sites. So what do you think are the most visited places in Jaipur?
First and foremost, one of the most visited forts in India, the Amber Fort. The extensive fort is situated atop a small hill with a magnificent view. The palace complex is a mix of pale yellow and pink sandstones, with white marble.
About the structure
The building is well crafted with narrow passages and serpentine staircases, along with the underground tunnels, all worth exploring. Divided into four sections, the fort has courtyards that look out to beautiful gardens, extensive gateways and elegant halls. With a beautiful mixture of Rajput and Mughal style, this architectural marvel needs at least 2 hours to be explored completely.
Hawa Mahal or the Palace of Wind always remains to be an iconic landmark in Jaipur. The 953 small lattice windows, with its honeycomb structure and Indo- Islamic architecture, is what makes the monument a visual treat. During the reign, the mahal used to act as a summer palace.
And the windows gave the royal women a view of the bustling street below. The structure, the narrow corridors and vivid glass work has always been a piece of wonder to the visitors.
The Amer Fort
Providing a spectacular view of the Amer fort and its green surroundings, the Jaigarh fort is built upon the Cheel ka Teela (Hill of Eagles).
