The Jantar Mantar of Jaipur is a World Heritage Site comprising of 16 geometrical instruments to keep track of time, watch the movements of celestial bodies and monitor the orbits of the planets. It was a unique and important construction for the city. The pink city is a timeless city with innumerable attractions and historic buildings like the Albert Hall Museum, Nahargarh fort, Jaigarh fort, Birla Temple, Gaitore (memorial of kings), Maharani ki Chatrri (memorial of queens), Anokhi Museum (hand printed textiles), Amber Fort (Must Visit Fort in Pink City of Jaipur) and many more. Seldom does anyone visiting Jaipur not visit the Sambhar Lake which is an inland salt lake and house to myriad exotic birds and flushed flamingos.
The Hawa Mahal which literally translates to the Palace of Winds was a summer escapade of the king which protected the queens from the public glare (with the help of networked windows) and enabled them to enjoy everyday life. The Jal Mahal is a sight to behold amidst the Man Sagar Lake with intricate stone walls. The City Palace is another piece of royal rajasthani architecture which is now converted into a museum with lovely paintings and regal costumes of the bygone era.
There are a plenty of other tourist attractions in Jaipur and the list doesn’t seem to end. Landscaped gardens and adorned palaces fill the tourist’s heart with fulfilment.
