Jaipur

The capital of Rajasthan commonly known as the Pink City. The major tourist places are situated in the old city which is in north-east of Jaipur. Jaipur is mainly famous for its forts, palaces, gardens, monuments and handicraft. The principal shopping centre in the old city is Johari Bazaar, the jewellers' market. Unlike other shopping centers in narrow alleys in India and elsewhere in Asia, this one is broad and open. There are three main interconnecting roads in the new part of town - Mirza Ismail Road (MI Road), Station Road and Sansar Chandra Marg. Along or just off these roads are most of the budget and mid-range hotels and restaurants, the railway station, the bus terminal, the GPO, many of the banks and the modern shopping centre.
Old City (Pink City) The old city is partially encircled by a crenellated wall pierced at intervals by gates the major gates are Chandpol ('pol' means gate), Ajmeri and Sanganeri. Broad avenues, over 30m wide, divide the pink city into neat rectangles, each of which is the domain of a particular group of artisans or commercial activities.
Chandpol is the entrance to the bustling Chandpol Bazaar. This is crossed by Khajane Walon ka Rasta, where you can see Jaipur's marble workers. At the intersection of Chandpol Bazaar and Kishanpol Bazaar you will find the Choti Chaupar, where villagers from outlying regions come to selland trade their produce.

Samode

The small village of Samode is nestled among rugged hills about 50 km north ofJaipur, via Chomu. The only reason to visit is if you can afford to stay at the beautiful Samode Palace (although strictly speaking it's not actually a palace, as it wasn't owned by a ruler, but by one of his noblemen). Like the Samode Haveli in Jaipur, this building was owned by the Rawal of Samode. It's a beautiful building built on three levels, each with its own courtyard. The highlight of the building is the absolutely exquisite diwan-i-khas, which is completely covered with original paintings and mirror work, and improbably the finest example of its kind in the country. Unfortunately the palace is openonly to guests, and public transport requires a change in Chomu.

Jaigarh Fort

The imposing Jaigarh Fort, built in 1726 byJai Singh, was only opened to the public inmid-1983. It's within walking distance of Amber and offers a great view over the plains from the Diwa Bur) watchtower. The fort served as the treasury of the Kachhwahas and some people are convinced that at least part of the royal treasure is still secreted somewhere among its corridors. It's a remarkable feat of military architecture, in a fine state of preservation. The fort, with its water reservoirs, residential areas, puppet theatre and enormous cannon, Jaya Vana, isopen from 9 am to 4.30 pm.


Nahargarh Fort

The Nahargarh Fort, also known as the Tiger Fort, overlooks the city from a sheer ridge to the north and is floodlit at night. The fort was built in 1734 by Jai Singh and extended in1868. An eight km road runs up through the hills from Jaipur, and the fort can be reached along a zigzagging two km path which starts from the north-west of the old city. The small restaurant at the fort is popular at sunset, which is the best place to watch the sun going down and see the lights over Jaipur.


Royal Gaitor

This beautiful, peaceful place is just outside the city walls, accessible via the Zorawar orSamrat gates in the northern wall of the oldcity. It contains the cenotaphs of the mahara-jas of Jaipur, from Jai Singh II, the founder of Jaipur, to that of the last maharaja, ManSingh II. Beside the entrance to the Royal Gaitor, steps lead in 20 minutes to a Ganesh temple. The cenotaphs of the maharanis of Jaipur are on Amber Road, midway between Jaipur and Amber.
