A 1-day itinerary in magnificent Jaipur - an itinerary

sunny 45 °C

I know I wrote a piece about the reasons why I fell in love with Jaipur. But I wanted to dedicate another post about the one-day itinerary I followed that day as it might give an idea to travelers who want to visit it themselves.

Jaipur is considered the jewel of Rajasthan and has an incredible history.

If you’re wondering why Jaipur is pink, you should read my microblog about it!

This place is fantastic but way smaller than on the pictures. I didn’t get to go inside as my guide told me we wouldn’t have enough time to explore the other monuments. So we just passed the building while in our car. The next destination was the Amber Fort.

This place was definitely the highlight of Jaipur. I could have stayed there for days. Our guide would have probably got bored if he stayed with us during the entire visit (he just waited outside of the building).

The garden inside the fort is very cute. We are far from the royal gardens you can explore in Europe… but is it really a good comparison. Anyway, it was a good stop for a short water break (the weather was so hot: I think we reached 45*C that day - I didn’t know I could get that red).

We wandered for an hour before reaching our next destination: the Jah Mahal.

When I saw the Fort, I was pretty curious and actually wanted to get there. But apparently it wasn’t possible (our guide didn’t actually give us an actual explanation but it was probably just closed to the public).

The Observatory or Jantar Mantar is the biggest observatory in India. It’s pretty impressive as all the instruments you can see there are calculation instruments used to figure out hours, days, months and years hundred years ago.

The 45 °C prevented me from spending too much time there so we had to leave after an hour (I couldn’t do more!).
