Jaipur is a bustling capital city and a business centre with all the trappings of a modern metropolis but yet flavoured strongly with an age-old charm that never fails to surprise a traveller. Jaipur is often called the Pink City in reference to its distinctly coloured buildings, which were originally painted this color to imitate the red sandstone architecture of Mughal cities. The present earthy red color originates from repainting of the buildings undertaken for a visit by the Prince of Wales in 1876. The stunning backdrops of ancient forts are apt testimonials of the bygone era and a reminder of their lingering romance and chivalry.
Cities Covered: Jaipur (India)
Stat your tour with a visit to the massive & most impressive Fort of Rajasthan, The Amber Fort. The Fort set in picturesque and rugged hills is a fascinating blend of Hindu and Mughal architecture. The rugged forbidding exterior belies an inner paradise with a beautiful fusion of art and architecture. Amber is the classic and romantic fort-palace with a magnificent aura. The interior wall of the palace depicts expressive painting scenes with carvings, precious stones and mirror settings. In the foreground is the Maota Lake providing a breathtaking vista. Here enjoy a ride on the elephant back to reach to the top of the fort. After the visit of the Fort return back to the hotel.
