16 Top-Rated Attractions & Places to Visit in Jaipur

Written by Joni Sweet Updated Mar 24, 2023

No trip to India is complete without spending time in Jaipur. Affectionately nicknamed "The Pink City" for the blushing color of its historic buildings, Jaipur is a princely wonderland of culture and heritage.

The best places to visit in Jaipur showcase the royalty of Rajasthan — and you don't have to walk far to see many of the top attractions. Start by touring City Palace , a nearly 300-year-old palace with special courtyards, structures, gardens, and temples.

Just next door is Jantar Mantar, a centuries-old attraction with giant astronomical instruments commissioned by the founder of the city. A 10-minute walk from here brings you to Hawa Mahal , a red-and-pink sandstone structure. Its distinctive lattice design allowed royal women to get a peek at public life while remaining unseen in the 19th century.

Ready to make your trip to "The Paris of India" a memorable experience? Map out your itinerary with our guide to the top attractions and places to visit in Jaipur.

City Palace in Jaipur

City Palace has stood at the heart of the Old City of Jaipur for nearly three centuries, shortly after Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II decided to relocate his court from the city of Amber. Protected by huge guard walls, the fairy-tale-like structure is still the home of the city's modern-day royal family and endures as one of the top places to visit in Jaipur.

City Palace is more than a sand-colored regal abode — it's a sprawling complex of buildings built around a series of landscaped garden courtyards overlooking Jaipur and Lake Palace. The entire property is a stunning display of Rajasthani and Mughal architecture.

The current occupants reside in the most eye-catching building, the Chandra Mahal , an elegant structure with curved eaves and domed rooftops. Each of its seven stories features an entirely different style. The ground floor is included in the price of admission, but you'll need to book a private tour to go upstairs.

Other noteworthy places for sightseeing at City Palace include the Mubarak Mahal (Welcome Palace), which contains displays of dazzling costumes and textiles; the Armoury, a museum-like space dedicated to preserving finely crafted daggers and swords; Pritam Niwas Chowk (Peacock Courtyard), which has mesmerizing doorways painted to look like the feathers of its namesake bird; and Diwan-i-Am (Hall of Public Audience), which showcases the palace's exquisite collection of miniature paintings.

After exploring the palace, check out the Friends of the Museum Bazaar . It has some of Jaipur's highest quality souvenirs (with equally high prices).

Address: Tulsi Marg, Gangori Bazaar, J.D.A. Market, Pink City, Jaipur

Jantar Mantar

At first glance, Jantar Mantar may look to be nothing more than a bunch of larger-than-life abstract sculptures. But this is not an art gallery — this attraction contains a special collection of astronomical tools started by Rajput ruler Jai Singh II to measure the heavens nearly 300 years ago.

Each of the 20 or so structures at this UNESCO World Heritage Site serves a distinctive purpose. The observatory's massive sundial, known as Samrat Yantra , is particularly striking. At 27 meters tall, it casts a huge shadow that accurately measures time down to two seconds.

The elaborate Jai Prakash also tracks the passing of time, using the shadow of a metal plate suspended above a sunken bowl-like structure. The ingenious Rama Yantra, a circular walled structure, can locate the precise positions of celestial objects. Other tools at the observatory can track stars and even predict eclipses.

Hot tip: It's worth hiring a private guide at Jantar Mantar if you want to learn how each of the structures works.

Address: Gangori Bazaar, J.D.A. Market, Pink City, Jaipur

Hawa Mahal

If you had any preconceived notions about how the buildings in Jaipur look, they probably came from Hawa Mahal (Palace of Breeze). A top place to visit in Jaipur, this structure has all of the distinctive architectural features that appear in postcards of the city, from the salmon-pink, honeycombed facade, built to resemble the crown of the Hindu god Krishna, to the geometric accents and rows of tiny windows.

The landmark was built in 1799 to allow royal ladies to watch festivals on the street without being seen by the public. Its 953 windows allow plenty of breezes to pass through, making it an ideal summer palace (and the perfect spot to get relief from Rajasthan's oppressive heat today).

Tourists can learn about the history of the sandstone structure at the palace's small museum — the ceremonial armor collection is particularly interesting. You can also wander the narrow hallways that run throughout the palace. Don't miss the colorful glasswork in windows and doorways, which cast an otherworldly glow on chambers throughout Hawal Mahal.

Address: Hawa Mahal Rd., Badi Choupad, J.D.A. Market, Pink City, Jaipur

Amber Fort

Jaipur is home to one of India's most-visited forts: Amber Fort. Built in the year 1592, the sandstone and marble monolith stands atop a small hill roughly 20 minute's driving distance northeast of the center of Jaipur. This attraction is best known for being a pristine example of Rajasthani architecture.

Getting to Amber Fort typically involves a short uphill hike that's well worth the effort. It's decked out with intricate patterns of inlaid marble in nearly every color of the rainbow. The fort is laid out into four separate sections, each of which has a spectacular garden courtyard outside. While you'd never know it from above, you can actually explore the fort's underground tunnels , some of which have been restored.

This UNESCO World Heritage Site has a fascinating history of legends, betrayals, and romance — but the best way for tourists to hear these stories is to hire a private guide at the Amber Fort.

Address: Devisinghpura, Amer, Jaipur

Albert Hall Museum

When English writer Rudyard Kipling visited the Albert Hall Museum in Jaipur, he wrote that it was a "rebuke to all other museums in India from Calcutta downwards." That's high praise coming from the son of a curator, and fitting for this renowned institution.

The oldest museum in Rajasthan, the Albert Hall Museum boasts an extensive collection of art and historically significant artifacts. Come for the Egyptian mummy ; stay to see antique coins from different periods in India's history, charming permanent exhibits of miniature paintings, 18th-century costumes worn by members of different castes, and a peculiar collection of 19th-century clay figures demonstrating all the yoga poses.

Hot tip: Visit the museum at night, when multicolored lights brighten the exterior of the alluring building.

Address: Museum Road, Ram Niwas Garden, Kailash Puri, Adarsh Nagar, Jaipur

Birla Mandir

In a city that seems to be dipped from top to bottom in pink, the stark white marble Birla Mandir stands out — big time. The Hindu temple pays tribute to Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and purity, and Vishnu, one of the religion's main deities. It's one of the best places to visit in Jaipur for tourists and Hindu devotees alike.

The marvelous structure exudes a quiet, peaceful vibe, offering just the right atmosphere to appreciate fine marble carvings, shrines to gods, and gorgeous sunset views. While you don't need more than 30 minutes to get a sense of the space, the experience will prove to be a restorative break from a day of sightseeing.

Address: Jawahar Lal Nehru Marg, Tilak Nagar, Jaipur

Nahargarh Fort

When it comes to sightseeing around Jaipur, the views don't get better than what you'll find at Nahargarh Fort. Also known as Tiger Fort , this nearly 300-year-old attraction overlooks the entire city from atop the Aravalli Hills — a prime location for the structure to defend the city against enemies many years ago.

More than just a formidable barrier though, this fort also contains Madhavendra Bhawan , a summer destination for royalty. The sumptuous Rajasthani building features a dozen identical boudoirs for the queens, which all connect to the king's suite through mural-filled corridors.

Tourists can also explore the fort's wax museum and sculpture park. And if you're feeling hungry, swing by one of the fort's many restaurants to tuck into traditional Indian cuisine.

Address: Krishna Nagar, Brahampuri, Jaipur

Galta Ji

Sources of water can be few and far between in the desert state of Rajasthan. So it's no wonder that when people discovered a natural spring in a mountain pass in the Aravalli Hills , they honored it by building the Hindu temple Galta Ji.

Nestled between cliffs, the temple features a few sacred water tanks, some with modest fountains, as well as frescoes that tell tales about the Hindu god Krishna.

Galta Ji is also one of the best places to visit in Jaipur if you want to see monkeys . It's home to hundreds of macaques and langurs (hence its nickname, "The Monkey Temple"). Daring tourists might opt to buy a handful of peanuts at the gate to tempt the monkeys, but you're better off just watching the rambunctious creatures from a distance.

Indian bracelets with diamonds and jewels

When the founders of the beloved Indian jewelry brand Amrapali Jewels started collecting antique jewelry in the late 1970s, they realized that some of these one-of-a-kind treasures deserved to be preserved and displayed. And so the Amrapali Museum was born, instantly becoming one of the top places to visit in Jaipur.

The jewelry museum in Jaipur features two full floors of glistening jewels and objects from its 4,000-piece collection, showcasing the vast range of Indian craftsmanship.

The displays show just how seriously Rajasthani people take their gold, silver, and precious gems. Among the jewels, you'll see silver bands for horses' legs, a chariot fully covered in silver, embellished shoe covers, and a glorious crown for a groom from Himachal Pradesh.

While these pieces are for display only, there's an extensive range of necklaces, bracelets, and other wearables available for purchase at the Museum Shop.

Address: Ground Floor, K, 14/B, Ashok Marg, Panch Batti, C Scheme, Ashok Nagar, Jaipur

For much of history, Rajasthan's most important handicrafts and works of art lived in private collections that were unavailable for viewing by the majority of the public. That all changed when the Government of Rajasthan opened the Museum of Legacies in 2017.

Housed in a two-centuries-old mansion, this tourist attraction showcases an assortment of Indian embroidery, giant Rajasthani puppets, Pichwai paintings, and much more.

Don't miss the magnificent marble latticework. The amount of swirling detail the artisans were able to carve from such a strong, hard stone is hypnotic.

Address: Kishanpole Bazar Road, Modikhana, Jaipur

Jal Mahal on Man Sagar Lake

One look at the Jal Mahal, and you might think you're seeing a mirage. The graceful palace seems to float atop the twinkling Man Sagar Lake — a calm sight compared to the rest of the frenzied city.

While it appears to have just one story, the Water Palace has four other levels submerged beneath a reservoir. The government no longer allows tourists to visit the site, but you can stroll a pathway around the lake to catch gorgeous views of the attraction. At night, it's lit up in all its glory, casting a golden, glowing reflection on the water.

Rajasthani puppets for sale in Jaipur

Jaipur is a mecca for souvenirs. Markets in the Pink City brim with everything from costume jewelry and precious gemstones to embroidered textiles, cobalt blue pottery, and Rajasthani puppets.

For a no-hassle shopping experience, head to the Rajasthali Handicrafts Emporium across from Ajmeri Gate. The government-run shop sells high-quality traditional handicrafts, like blue pottery decorated with yellow flowers, sets of wooden carvings depicting Rajasthani characters, and hand-printed saris. The prices you see on these items are fixed, so while you won't be able to negotiate a discount, you can also avoid the headache of bargaining.

Johari Bazar is a jewelry lover's paradise. The market glitters from top to bottom with dozens of shops selling everything from costume jewelry to fine silver and gold. No matter your budget, you'll find something beautiful to take home from here.

Finally, don't leave Jaipur without a quick shopping trip to Bapu Bazar. Located just a few blocks southwest of Johari Bazaar, the tourist-favorite market is chock full of handcrafted trinkets, locally made textiles, bedazzled slippers, and souvenirs galore.

Jaigarh Fort

Perched on a hilltop overlooking the Amber Fort, Jaigarh Fort is one of the best places to visit in Jaipur if you want a remarkable view and up-close access to historical artifacts. It's best known for housing the Jaivana Cannon, which was considered to be the world's largest cannon on wheels when it was built in the early 18th century.

Visiting the attraction gives tourists an appreciation for the fort's role in keeping Jaipur and the surrounding area safe from invaders. Spread over a range of three kilometers, the fort features thick sandstone walls and a series of subterranean passages. It's thought to be the strongest of Jaipur's forts.

Beyond fortified, though, the fort was also an opulent place when it was in use. You can still see its majestic palace complex and intricate architecture on tours today.

Panna Meena ka Kund

Another one of the popular things to do in Amer after visiting the Amber Fort is taking a 10-minute walk south to visit Panna Meena ka Kund, a stepwell that dates back to the 16th century.

Locals used to come to this spot to fill their pots with water for rituals and household chores. It was also the go-to place to cool off from the intense desert heat.

Today, the attraction's primary purpose is as a backdrop for tourist photos — and for good reason. Its golden yellow hue and labyrinthine steps, which look like they were plucked from one of M.C. Escher's artworks, make for postcard-worthy images . But as tempting as it might be to enter the beautiful attraction for a selfie, Panna Meena ka Kund does not allow visitors to go inside, so keep your photo shoot to the exterior only.

Akshardham Temple in Jaipur at night

Akshardham Temple might look like an ancient site, but don't be fooled — this attraction was built in the 21st century as part of a series of 10 temples dedicated to the Hindu god Narayana (a form of Lord Vishnu).

Still, the 23-acre religious complex is an impressive place to spend the afternoon. The white marble and pink sandstone temple showcases the intricacy of Hindu architecture with its stone carvings of Hindu deities, animals, and scenery. Step inside to see massive pure-gold statues and pristine paintings. There's also a peaceful garden courtyard brimming with lush plants and a musical fountain just outside.

Address: Vidyut Nagar, Vaishali Nagar, Chitrakoot, Jaipur

Elephant Festival in Jaipur

Attending an annual festival is one of the top things to do in Jaipur, and the city's calendar is chock full of events.

In January, you can watch colorful creations fly through the sky during the International Kite Festival and get books signed by famous authors at the Jaipur Literature Festival.

The city hosts its Elephant Festival, during which the tusked animals are painted with Indian motifs and dressed in extravagant costumes, in February or March (depending on the moon cycle). And the two-day Teej Festival, a celebration that honors the union of Shiva and the goddess Parvati, occurs in July or August.

new tourist places in jaipur

Travel and Still life photography/Getty Images

Jaipur , Rajasthan's desert capital and "Pink City", is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and part of the popular Golden Triangle tourist circuit (along with Delhi and Agra). The city's well-preserved palaces and forts, with elaborate architecture reflective of the their royal heritage, are top attractions. However, the recent addition of many cool shops, bars, cafes, and creative spaces has made the city quite hip too. Read on to discover the best things to do in Jaipur.

Take an Off-Beat Tour of Jaipur

Pink City Rickshaw Company

Fancy zipping around Jaipur on an electric Segway ? Or, going sightseeing in a classic restored Ambassador car , or custom-designed e-rickshaw driven by an enterprising lady from a low-income household ? Perhaps you're the sporty type and would prefer to explore the city on a cycling tour ? There are all kinds of memorable off-beat tours in Jaipur. They cover attractions such as the Old City, markets, food, and Jaipur by night.

Join an Old City Heritage Walk

Radiokukka/Getty Images

Delve into Jaipur's Old City beyond its famous monuments on one of the early morning or evening immersive heritage walking tours conducted by Vedic Walks . Depending on which tour you choose, you'll get to visit communities of artisans such as bangle-makers and metal workers, gemstone workshops, ancient temples, a traditional Ayurvedic hospital, and old stables converted into a market. The tours depart at 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., and run for about two and a half hours. Another option is this insightful Temples and Havelis Walking Tour conducted by Virasat Experiences. It uncovers some of the Old City's lesser known-architectural wonders and traditions of local communities.

Have an Encounter with Royalty

Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II built the City Palace as part of his new capital in Jaipur. It was completed in 1732 and has an expansive complex of courtyards. The royal family still lives there, in the graceful Chandra Mahal. Various parts of the palace are open to the public according to the type of ticket purchased. Standard City Palace composite tickets cost 300 rupees for Indians and 700 rupees for foreigners. These provide access to palace courtyards, galleries, Jaigarh fort, and the royal cenotaphs. A highlight is the palace's Pritam Niwas Chowk with its colorful painted doorways representing the different seasons. Other attractions include displays of royal costumes, old Indian weapons, paintings and photographs. Special tickets provide access (with a guide) to the royal family's private quarters, and start from 1,500 rupees for Indians and 2,000 rupees for foreigners.

The City Palace is situated in the Old City and is open daily from 9.30 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. It reopens from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. in the evenings for a sound and light show, plus night viewing. Tickets for this cost 500 rupees for Indians and 1,000 rupees for foreigners. For an extra special experience, have dinner at the City Palace's Baradari restaurant while you're there.

Go Behind the Iconic Wind Palace

The intricate facade of the Hawa Mahal (Wind Palace) is possibly Jaipur's most photographed building. Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh constructed it in 1799 as an extension of the women's quarters of the City Palace, to enable the royal women to look out over the main street below without being observed. Wind used to flow through the shutters, giving the palace its name. However, most are now sealed closed to help preserve them. It's possible to go inside the Hawa Mahal from the entrance around the back. Government composite tickets, costing 300 rupees for Indians and 1,000 rupees for foreigners, are available from Rajasthan's Department of Archaeology & Museums . These tickets are valid for two days and also include Amber Fort, Nahargarh Fort, Jantar Mantar observatory, and Albert Hall Museum. Otherwise, the entry fee is 50 rupees for Indians and 200 rupees for foreigners. The Hawa Mahal is open daily from 9 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Find out more in this essential guide to the Hawa Mahal.

Learn About Astronomy

Glenn Beanland/Getty Images

Jantar Mantar's intriguing structures are actually a collection of astrological instruments. Each has a specialized astronomical function such as measuring time, predicting eclipses, and tracking stars. The most impressive one is the huge Samrat Yantra sundial. At a height of 90 feet (27 meters), its shadow moves roughly the width of a person's hand every minute. It's a profound display of how quickly time does in fact go! Jantar Mantar (literally meaning "calculation instrument") is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of five such astronomical observatories built by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, a renowned mathematician and astronomer. It was completed in 1738 and is located next to the City Palace in the Old City. The entrance fee, for those who don't have a government composite ticket, is 50 rupees for Indians and 200 rupees for foreigners.

Explore Amber Fort and Palace

TripSavvy / Alicia Erikson

Like something out of a fairy tale, Amber Fort sits atop a hill overlooking Maota Lake about 30 minutes north of the city center. Maharaja Man Singh I, who led Mughal Emperor Akbar's army, commenced constructing the fort in 1592. It was the home of Kachwaha Rajput rulers until Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II relocated their capital to Jaipur city in 1727. Inside is a series of lavish palaces, halls, gardens, and temples. Elaborate mirror work adds to the grandeur. Amber Fort is open daily from 8 a.m. until 5.30 p.m. Many people choose to remain there for the evening sound and light show that brings to life the fort's history, night viewing, and dinner at opulent restaurant 1135 AD (which was once the king's private dining room). The fort reopens, evocatively illuminated, from 6:30 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. The entry fee during the day for those who don't have a government composite ticket is 100 rupees for Indians and 500 rupees for foreigners. Plan your trip with this complete guide to Amber Fort.

See the World's Largest Cannon on Wheels

Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II built Jaigarh Fort in 1726 to protect Amber Fort. This fort holds great appeal for military lovers, as it contains the world's largest cannon on wheels. The cannon has never been fired though, and neither has the fort been captured. As a result, it has remained impressively intact over its long life. In fact, the fort is one of the best-preserved military structures of medieval India. Jaigarh doesn't have the delicate palace interiors of Amber Fort, and therefore appears as a real fortress. Climb Diwa Burj watchtower to get an outstanding view over the plains. The fort is situated above Amber Fort and can be reached on foot (if you're fit!). It's open from 9.30 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. daily. Those who don't have a City Palace composite ticket must pay an entry fee of 50 rupees for Indians and 100 rupees for foreigners.

Admire the Remarkable Water Palace

Jaipur's remarkable Jal Mahal (Water Palace) appears to magically float on Man Sagar Lake near Amber Fort. Not a lot is known about its history but Maharaja Sawai Madho Singh I is thought to have made it a lodge for royal duck hunting trips in the mid 18th century. The palace actually has four floors that are submerged below the water, with specially designed lime mortar to prevent water seepage. Unfortunately, despite being renovated, the palace not yet open to the public, so you'll have to be content with viewing it from the side of the lake.

Spend Sunset at Nahargarh Fort

Compact yet robust Nahargarh Fort (also known as Tiger Fort) is perched high on the rugged Aravali Hills northwest of Jaipur city. Sawai Jai Singh II commissioned it in 1734 to help strengthen the security of his new capital. It found fame in 2006, after scenes from the hit Bollywood movie Rang De Basanti were filmed there. The fort provides spectacular views over the city, particularly at sunset. Inside, the highlight is the Madhavendra Bhavan palace complex, which is the backdrop for the new Sculpture Park. There's also a wax museum, elegant fine-dining restaurant called Once Upon a Time, and a budget government-run restaurant called Padao. If you don't have a government composite ticket, you'll need to pay an entry fee of 50 rupees or Indians and 200 rupees for foreigners to access the palace part of the fort. Those who are feeling energetic can hike up to the fort from the Old City. The main palace part is open from 10 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. daily. Refer to this essential guide to Nahargarh Fort for more information.

Relax at the Royal Cenotaphs

Donyanedomam /Getty Images

Despite being included in the City Palace composite ticket, the Gatore ki Chhatriyan cenotaphs at the foothills of Nahargarh Fort are overlooked by most tourists. This makes them delightfully restful most of the time. The superbly carved cenotaphs honor Jaipur's deceased kings, from Sawai Jai Singh ll to Man Singh ll. The most impressive cenotaph is dedicated to Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh ll. It's made out of white marble, has 20 pillars, and is decorated in carvings of Hindu gods and people. The cenotaph complex is open daily from 9.30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Take the Jaipur-Amber Road and turn off near Jal Mahal to get there. The entry fee for those who don't have a City Palace composite ticket is 40 rupees for Indians and 100 rupees for foreigners. Nearby Garh Ganesh temple is worth visiting too.

Go on a Heritage Water Walk

There are two little-known but important stepwells with amazing architecture around Jaipur (one at Nahargarh and the other near Amber Fort). You can learn about their functionality and the sacredness of water in Rajasthani culture on the informative walking tours conducted by Heritage Water Walks. The explanation of the ancient water catchment systems used to supply water to the forts is fascinating. The tours run for two hours. The cost is 1,000-1,100 rupees per person for Indians and 1,300-1,500 rupees for foreigners. Timings are flexible.

Pose for Photos Inside Patrika Gate

skaman306 /Getty Images

Jaipur's ninth and most colorful gate, Patrika Gate, graces the entrance to Jawahar Circle garden five minutes north of Jaipur airport. This recently constructed but traditional-style ornamental gate is named after the Rajasthani newspaper and media company, Patrika. Its interior walls are covered in splendid paintings depicting scenes from daily life and various regions in Rajasthan. Not surprisingly, it's one of the most popular places for photo shoots in Jaipur.

Get Up Close to Monkeys

The rather ruinous but holy Galtaji temple is nestled between two granite cliffs at the far eastern edge of the city. It's part of a larger temple complex, which also has three sacred pools of water. One of the pools has been taken over by thousands of monkeys that congregate there to swim and bathe. They're generally friendly and love to be fed. Unfortunately, the area is not well maintained. Be prepared to encounter dirt and trash, as well as people who will coerce you to pay money. Visit late afternoon, near sunset, when the monkeys flock to the temple. To get there, from the road walk up the hill to the white Sun Temple, and then follow the steps downhill into the gorge.

Take a Hot Air Balloon Flight

Jaipur is one of the most majestic spots for hot air balloon flights in India. Skywaltz operates two different routes. The main one is just north of Jaipur, surrounding Amber fort. The balloons drift over local villages, forts, and palaces. The other route covers the untouched area around Samode Palace and village. Starting points vary depending on wind speed and direction. The duration of the flight is about an hour, and the cost is from $190 per person. The season extends from September to April.

Shop 'Til You Drop

Jaipur, nicknamed the Pink City, forms a key point on the Golden Triangle, the tourist circuit that connects New Delhi, Agra, and Rajasthan. Jaipur's nickname is a nod to the pink buildings within its historic core, among them the iconic Hawa Mahal.

Jaipur is also continuously named one of the best cities in the world by Travel + Leisure readers . A city of sprawling palaces, it's also home to ornate architectural masterpieces and sweeping views of lush green hills and idyllic lakes. It is the first planned city in India and has earned UNESCO World Heritage status for setting an exceptional example of indigenous city planning. And its streets feel a little more manageable than the congested labyrinths of New Delhi and Mumbai, especially for first-time visitors to India.

This is a city that inspired Paul McCartney to write "Riding into Jaipur" and became the backdrop of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel movies. It is a place to enjoy the performing arts, to feast on sumptuous meals in the banquet halls of royalty, and to reminisce about a bygone era of Maharajas. Ride elephants and explore Mughal architecture by day and enjoy some of the world's finest hotels by night.

Jaipur is also a shopper's paradise, offering everything from fine jewelry and intricate handmade art pieces to a variety of textiles.

Visitors can fly directly into the city or take a train, bus, or private car from New Delhi. The fastest route is by high-speed train, which takes just under four hours.

Jaipur is in the Indian Standard Time Zone. Indian Standard Time is 10 hours and 30 minutes ahead of Eastern Time, and India does not observe Daylight Saving Time.

Jaipur is warm all year long, but the most comfortable time to visit the Pink City is between October and February. This is when the days are clear and breezy and when visitors can expect to find the most pleasant temperatures. Visit between March and July and you may find yourself exploring sprawling castles that pre-date air conditioning in stifling heat. During these months, temperatures in Jaipur can soar above 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

Address: Tulsi Marg, Gangori Bazaar, J.D.A. Market, Pink City

Next to Hawa Mahal, this is one of Jaipur's top attractions. Until 1949, this was the ceremonial and administrative seat of the Maharaja of Jaipur. It hosted religious and cultural events in a collection of buildings surrounding open courtyards.

Address: Man Sagar Lake, viewable from Nahargarh Fort

Jal Mahal is a majestic palace rising from the center of Man Sagar Lake. This palace seems to float on top of the glassy water, but a close look shows it's partially submerged. Just one of its five stories is now visible. The building isn't accessible, but you can catch a glimpse of its former glory from Nahargarh Fort.

Jantar Mantar

Address: Gangori Bazaar, J.D.A. Market, Pink City, Jaipur, Rajasthan 302002, India

This is yet another UNESCO World Heritage Site you won't want to miss, especially if you're fascinated by astronomy. The Jantar Mahal is a collection of 19 astronomical instruments built in the early 1700s. It is home to the world's largest stone sundial.

Nahargarh Fort

Address: Krishna Nagar, Brahampuri, Jaipur, Rajasthan 302002, India

This magnificent force was once a key point in the city's defense. It's connected to the Jaigarh Fort and offers sweeping views of the city of Jaipur as well as the Jal Mahal, which is no longer accessible to tourists.

Jaigarh Fort

Address: Devisinghpura, Amer, Jaipur, Rajasthan 302028, India

Jaigarh Fort is located 500 feet above sea level, in the Aravalli mountain range. It was built in 1726 to protect the Amer Fort palace complex and overlooks the Amer Fort and Maota Lake.

Johari Bazar

Address: Johari Bazaar Road

This is one of the best known shopping spots in Jaipur. Johari translates to jeweler, and jewelry is a market specialty. Shoppers can expect to find traditional Rajasthani jewelry made from gold and precious stones as well as a variety of traditional Indian clothing.

Address: Bapu Bazaar Road

Bapu Bazar is the place to buy Mojari, a popular local shoe made of camel skin. Shoppers can also expect to find a variety of Rajasthani textiles, crafts, and traditional Indian clothing including lehengas and sarees.

Tripolia Bazar

Address: Kanwar Nagar

Tripolia Bazar is one of the oldest and busiest markets in Jaipur. This is the place to shop for bangles and colorful fabrics. You can also expect to find a variety of fine carpets and rugs.

Chandpole Bazar

Address: Pink City, Jaipur, Rajasthan 302007

If you've got a dream home to furnish, you'll want to pay this 300-year-old market in the heart of the Pink City a visit. This market is home to hundreds of vendors and best known for its intricately carved marble statues.

Nehru Bazar

Address: Film Colony, Modikhana

You'll find a variety of gorgeous clothing items and textiles here, but the big draw are the juttis, a traditional North Indian style of shoe. Juttis are a Jaipur specialty, and you'll find the best of them at Nehru Bazar.

Pink City : This is the old city, the historic core of Jaipur where you'll find key sights including Hawa Mahal, City Palace, and several local markets.

Sindhi Camp : This modest residential neighborhood is east of Pink City. This is a transport hub and a place brimming with authentic street food and affordable accommodations.

The days are marked with warmth all year long in Jaipur, though nights can get chilly from December to February. Summer comes early with peak temperatures that can rise above 100° Fahrenheit April, May, and June. Monsoon season runs from July to September, cooling down temperatures and lowering hotel prices for visitors who don't mind the rain. October to June bring cool breezes and moderate sunlight, making it the most popular time of the year to visit. You may want to pack a jacket, though. Temperatures can dip into the 40s in January.

The following are average temperature highs and lows by month in Fahrenheit.

January: 46°F to 74°F February: 54°F to 81°F March: 63°F to 92°F April: 72°F to 101°F May: 80°F to 108°F June: 81°F to 105°F July: 78°F to 96°F August: 76°F to 92°F September: 75°F to 95°F October: 68°F to 95°F November: 58°F to 87°F December: 50°F to 78°F

How to Plan a Jaipur Itinerary 2024

There is more to explore in Jaipur. The magnificent architectural creations are Jaipur's biggest highlights :

The eye-catching Palace of the Wind is a masterpiece of Indian architecture. Its pink walls and numerous windows are a Jaipur landmark.

There are also the City Palace that the current king of Jaipur is still living in and the historic Jantar Mantar (giant stone instruments of astronomy).

Meanwhile, the grand Amber Fort overlooks Jaipur. If you are thinking of a couple's trip, you can add a romantic dinner experience at Amber Fort to your itinerary. This could make a treasured memory for your anniversary or honeymoon.

If you're interested in history, you could also visit Nahargarh Fort , a former military defense base. There you could enjoy an unrivaled bird's-eye view of the city at dusk.

Jaipur is also the center of gem processing and distribution in India. If you want to go shopping for souvenirs, we recommend Johari Bazaar. There you can find all kinds of gems, textiles, Indian essential oils, incense, and tea.

It takes 1–3 days to visit all the highlights of Jaipur.

If you want to have a golden triangle trip with Delhi and Agra too, you would need at least 7 days.

If you are thinking of a desert culture trip exploring Rajasthan, 8–10 days are needed, covering its major cities of Jaipur, Udaipur, Jodhpur, and Jaisalmer.

Day 2 : Explore the Palace of Wind, Amber Fort, and take a cooking class in the home of a Jaipuri local.

Day 3 : Go to the City Palace and Nahargarh Fort. Explore some local markets and bazaars.

If you want a shorter stay, you could visit the City Palace and Nahargarh Fort on the first day, when you arrive in Jaipur, just in time to see the beautiful sunset.

A Classic Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur Itinerary: 7 Days

These three cities encompass the most iconic experiences in India — history and culture in the capital, the Taj Mahal in Agra, and charming pink architecture in Jaipur.

Days 1–2 : Delhi exploration. Learn about India's culture and history from its famous sights: Red Fort, Qutub Minar, Jama Masjid, and Humayun's Tomb. Then take a rickshaw ride through Chandni Chowk market for some local culture.

Jaipur is not far away from both Delhi and Agra. Jaipur is about 280 kilometers (175 miles) southwest of Delhi and about 238 km (148 miles) west of Agra.

It is very convenient to travel to Jaipur from Delhi and Agra. The most worry-free and efficient way to get to Jaipur is by private vehicle, taking you right from hotel to hotel. It will take about 5½ hours from Delhi to Jaipur and 4½ hours from Agra to Jaipur.

Flights to Jaipur from Agra are not available. You could choose to take a direct flight from Delhi to Jaipur of about 50 minutes to 1 hour, but flights are not daily. With the waiting time and the travel time from hotel to airport to hotel, it will take about 5 hours in total as well.

Other ways, like taking a train or bus, are also doable. We have compiled more detailed transportation information on Delhi to Jaipur and Agra to Jaipur .

December to February sees Jaipur's coolest and driest weather, which could be one of the best times to visit Jaipur.

March, October, and November are considered the shoulder season months in Jaipur. You can expect to enjoy attractions with fewer crowds and sunny days while paying lower prices than during peak season. With Asia Highlights , you enjoy 100% refund of any payments made to China Highlights prior to 3 weeks before departure ( detail⇒ ).

July to September is the rainy season in Jaipur, but you can find good discounts if you want the lowest prices. And April to June is the hot season, which regularly sees temperatures over 40°C (104°F); it has low prices too.

Check out more on our article: Best and Worst Times to Visit Jaipur .

Jaipur has many heritage palaces. Some of these palaces have been converted into hotels and have become a feature of Jaipur — its heritage hotels .

Jaipur's main attractions, like the City Palace, the Wind of Palace, and Jantar Mantar, are located in its 'old city'. So, if you want to stay in an area that is convenient for sightseeing and shopping, you should choose to stay in the old city area.

If you prefer a quiet vibe, you could stay around Man Sagar Lake, about halfway between the Old City and Amber Fort, or even around the fort itself.

JAIPUR Itinerary • MUST READ! (2024)

“The Pink City” of Jaipur is majestic Rajasthan’s bustling capital and is just jam-packed with splendid palaces, mystical temples and unmatched shopping opportunities. Located in the Golden Triangle in the north of India, it’s been at the center of India’s cultural, artistic and scientific development since its foundation.

Whether it’s a museum of handmade textiles or a sprawling astronomical observatory you’re after, you’ll find this living history all over our Jaipur itinerary!

Jaipur is so big and so manic that it can be a challenge to pack everything in. But when you decide to follow our Jaipur itinerary, you’re getting so much more than just a list of sites to visit. From the best place to stay in Jaipur in 3 days to the nearest eatery for every attraction, we’ve really thought of everything!

Just stick close to our 3 day in Jaipur itinerary and you’ll be in for a dazzling time in the pink city of Jaipur!

A Little Bit About This Jaipur Itinerary

Where to stay in jaipur, jaipur itinerary day 1: the pink city, jaipur itinerary day 2: gem stones & monkeys, jaipur itinerary day 3: fortresses & block prints, best time to visit jaipur, how to get around jaipur, what to prepare before visiting jaipur, faq on jaipur itinerary.

From state-of-the-art museums to an utterly beguiling pink palace, Jaipur hosts a whole trove of treasures with which to dazzle visitors. Our day-by-day Jaipur itineraries will introduce you to all the city’s iconic wonders, as well as find spaces where you can just breathe and take it all in! If you are wondering how many days to spend in Jaipur, then I suggest that 3 is plenty.

There are various methods of getting around Jaipur. Uber and Ola, another app-based cab service, both operate in Jaipur and are the most hassle-free ways of getting around.

You can also take a rickshaw which is best for short distances. Try The Pink City Rickshaw Company which is run and owned by women from low-income households in Jaipur. It’s easy to spot these hot pink, eco-friendly, and custom-designed vehicles from a distance!

3 Day Jaipur Itinerary Overview

  • Day 1 – Jaipur City Palace , Chandra Mahal , Street Food , Jantar Mantar , Hawa Mahal
  • Day 2 – Albert Hall , Amrapali Museum , Lunch at Old Green Tandoori , Bazaar Shopping , Monkey Temple , Dinner at Arya Niwaz
  • Day 3 – Amer Fort , Jal Mahal , Block Print Museum , Lunch at Anokhi , Gem Palace , Nahargarh Fort

As magical as Jaipur may seem when you’re ogling the pink palace, there are also parts of Jaipur that are far from picturesque. Choosing where to stay on your Jaipur trip is very important!

Bani Park is the best place to stay in Jaipur. It’s a tranquil and safe residential area that is within easy proximity to the sights on your Jaipur itinerary! It’s close to the train station and rickshaw drivers are always close by to get you around Jaipur.

There are numerous accommodation options ranging from budget to all-out luxury! Bani Park is actually the center of the haveli accommodation industry. Havelis are traditional Indian mansions that are built around a courtyard and you’ll find plenty of these charming hotels in Bani Park!

C Scheme is another good option to base your itinerary for Jaipur. It has fewer accommodation options than Bani Park but it is within walking distance of the major Jaipur attractions, such as the City Palace.

If you prefer to be right in the heart of things while on your Jaipur visit, consider Mirza Ismail Road (also known as MI Road). This colossal road cuts through the entire city, meaning it has ideal access to transport! The area has various accommodation options to suit all budgets and is ideal for those interested in shopping and local cuisine.

Best Hostel in Jaipur – Zostel Jaipur Hostel

Zostel Jaipur Hostel

Zostel Jaipur Hostel is the two-time winner of the best hostel in India prize so you know you’re in good hands here! It’s situated in the city center, near the Hawa Mahal. There’s free wifi, air conditioning for humid summers, and regular social events! The staff has gotten top marks for friendliness and helpfulness, while the hostel itself remains pristine.

Best Airbnb in Jaipur: Period property steeped in history!

Period property steeped in history

This palatial, heritage property will make you feel like you stepped back in time the moment you walk through the door. It’s the kind of place where every detail has been considered and nothing skipped. Perfect for the insta-minded.

Best Luxury Hotel in Jaipur – Taj Rambagh Palace

Taj Rambagh Palace

With endless landscaped gardens, four-poster beds and on-call butlers, you could be forgiven for thinking you’re royalty at the Taj Rambagh Palace! After all, the hotel is a palace that was once the home of the Maharajah of Jaipur! The staff at this 5-star hotel is both discrete and efficient, and everything from cocktails to afternoon tea is on offer!

Jaipur Itinerary Day 1 Map

Day 1 of our Jaipur Itinerary takes in the historical pink city. Prepare to be amazed by the ancient palaces and swept up Jaipur’s manic energy. Wear comfortable shoes and light, loose clothing as there will be a bit of walking involved. You can get between the various attractions by Tuk Tuk which can easily be hailed from the street -just remember to barter hard on the price!

10.00 am – Chandra Mahal

Chandra Mahal

Although it’s technically a part of City Palace, Chandra Mahal has its own entrance fee and a famed reputation in its own right! It’s a seven-story building but only the ground floor can be visited by tourists.

The royal collection on display at the museum is just spectacular, with everything from priceless manuscripts to rare carpets on display! Although it’s a bit pricey, most visitors agree that it’s worth it.

  • How long should I stay here?  1 hour
  • Getting there –  Take a Tuk Tuk or cab

11:30 am- City Palace

City Palace

Built by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, Jaipur City Palace is a fusion of Mughal and Rajput architecture. The enormous complex took up one-seventh of old Jaipur so there’s plenty to see.

The Mubarak Mahal is one of the great highlights of the palace. It was constructed as a reception hall in the 19th century and today, it’s the palace museum. There are some truly envy-provoking clothes worn by the royal family on display!

In the Diwan-I-Khas, an audience chamber, you’ll find two silver vessels which hold the Guinness World Book of Records for the largest silver vessels in the world. They were used to carry water from the Ganges for Sawaii Madho Singh II who wanted to only drink the holy water while on tour in England!

If you can afford to splash out on just one thing, it should be a guided tour of the City Palace. The palace is just gigantic and has so many stories that only an insider can tell! If you don’t have a guide, try the audio guide which costs $3 USD.

  • Cost  – $10
  • Getting there  –  It’s adjacent to Chandra Mahal so use those feet!

1.00 pm – Street Food

If you are backpacking India on a budget then you will probably be living on street food. Indian street food is world-famous and if it’s your first time in Jaipur you have to try it! The offerings are varied are ubiquitous, the flavors tantalizing and best of all it is super cheap! Pakora’s (fried balls of spicy stuff) can readily be picked up from $0.10. You can find street food pretty much anywhere and the streets around City Palace and Chandra Mahal have a few stalls or kiosks operating.

Some western stomachs can be a bit sensitive to spices and ghee and but you don’t have too much to worry about in terms of hygiene. Just pick somewhere that looks popular and eat only food that is hot and fresh.

2.00 pm – Jantar Mantar

Jantar Mantar

Jantar Mantar was constructed by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II who was fascinated with the mysteries of the skies. It continues to be a working astronomical observatory that fascinates tourists on vacation in Jaipur!

Vrihat Samrat Yantra, the huge sundial, is the crown jewel of Jantar Mantar. At 27m, it’s the tallest sundial in the world.

Jaya Prakash Yantra is another stellar highlight of our Jaipur itinerary. When the inverted image of the sky falls on the marble slabs, casting a shadow, it’s possible to determine the positions of various stars and planets!

Other fascinating instruments include Digamsa and Karnti Vritya which measure times for sunrise and sunset, and the solar sign of the sun, respectively.

Make sure that you get here around midday when the sun is overhead. This means you’ll be able to see how readings are taken from the various instruments much more easily than at other times!

  • How long should I stay here?  30 – 60 minutes
  • Getting there  –  A Tuk Tuk or Cab to the main entrance

3.30 pm – Hawa Mahal

Hawa Mahal

The next of our places to visit Jaipur in 3 days is Hawa Mahal, the gorgeous “Palace of the Wind” and one of the classic Jaipur landmarks. It was built as an extension to City Palace in 1799 to allow royal ladies to watch street parades without being seen by the wider public.

The architecture of Hawa Mahal is just sublime. Admiring the facade, which is shaped a bit like a honeycomb, you can take in all 953 windows!

Some say that the shape was inspired by Lord Krishna’s crown.  When the royal ladies would watch street activities, they’d have the windows slightly open to let in a breeze, giving rise to the name “Palace of the Wind”.

Hawa Mahal is also reputedly the world’s tallest building without a foundation. If you notice a slight curve in the structure, that was a mechanism to compensate for the lack of a foundation!

  • How long should I stay here?  2 hours
  • Getting there  –  It’s a 9 minute walk from the last stop. Ask for “Hawa Mahal”.

Wanna know how to pack like a pro? Well for a start you need the right gear….

These are packing cubes for the globetrotters and compression sacks for the  real adventurers – these babies are a traveller’s best kept secret. They organise yo’ packing and minimise volume too so you can pack MORE.

Or, y’know… you can stick to just chucking it all in your backpack…

Jaipur Itinerary Day 2 Map

I do hope you saved some energy yesterday as Day 2 of our Jaipur Itinerary is equally as action-packed! Today we take in some colonial-era architectural gems, a few lovely museums, and finish with sunset up at the monkey temple; my personal favorite spot in Jaipur.

10:00 am – Albert Hall Museum

Albert Hall

When the building first started on Albert Hall, no one had any idea of what purpose the structure would serve! Fortunately, Maharaja Sawai Madho Singh II approved an idea to create a museum in the space that would showcase the talents of local artists.

Albert Hall’s architecture is something of an attraction in itself. The Indian-Saracenic style incorporates features from various Indian architectural styles.

The museum walls are covered in murals depicting daily life in various other great empires, like Babylon and Egypt. This allowed citizens to compare their lives with others and develop their knowledge.

The 16 galleries inside the museum range from armor to miniature paintings. There are some fascinating coins that date back to before the 11th century! You’re also able to admire royal jewellery, intricate woodwork, and ivory statues.

  • How long should I stay here?  60 – 90 minutes
  • Getting there –  Take a Tuk Tuk or cab

11.30 am – Amrapali Museum

No, it’s not just another museum on the Jaipur itinerary; this is the Amrapali Museum and, trust us, it’s awesome! It has arguably the most state-of-the-art facilities to showcase hand-picked items from around India, and it’s just stunning.

Amrapali Museum was founded by two friends who went on an epic trip around India, sourcing unique items from various Indian tribes. The love and thought that went into this venture are so palpable in the museum that it’d be a shame to miss it when you travel to Jaipur!

The bulk of the museum’s collection is jewelry and expensive personal items. While you can easily give yourself free rein to explore the museum, there are a number of absolute must-see items on show!

One of the more unusual collections is that of  mukhnaals . These gilded objects were used by Indian kings as mouthpieces for hookahs. The eclectic designs range from fish to elephants!

Another insight into lavish royal life comes with the pair of  mojris  from around the 19th century. These shoes are made of solid gold and silver, encrusted with rubies and emeralds, and would have been worn for ceremonial occasions!

You may not be able to afford the real thing but upstairs there are some pretty good replicas for sale!

  • Getting there  –  It’s a 5 – 10 minute ride by Tuk Tuk or cab

1.00 pm – Lunch at Old Green Tandoori

Old Green Tandori

Today we’re having lunch at what is something of a Jaipur institution. Green Tandoori situated just opposite Chamelli market is a hub for foreigners re-fueling after browsing the markets and professional stone buyers. They do classic Indian dishes and amazing tandoori’s at bargain prices.

I recommend the Paneer Tikka Tandoori (cheese roasted in spices) chased down by a lassi – a typical Indian milk-based drink. Or, if you are very hungry take a Thali (mixed tray).

The Green Tandoori makes it very easy to access the next options in our itinerary.

  • Cost  – $3 will properly fill you up
  • Getting there  –  It’s a 9-minute walk or you can grab a Tuk Tuk for about 50rps

2.00 pm – Bazaar shopping

Bazaars

From turbans to musical instruments, Jaipur’s bazaars have anything and everything you can imagine on sale! Even if you’re not buying, just taking the vibrant atmosphere in will be a highlight of your Jaipur itinerary!

There are different markets and bazaars scattered across Jaipur each one specializing in something different from textiles, to stones to metal to random bits of crap!

Sireh Deori Bazaar is probably the most famous place to shop while touring Jaipur. It’s just opposite the Hawa Mahal and has a variety of goods, ideal for window shoppers who want to get an idea of what’s on offer! You’ll also find the best camel leather products here.

For a bit of Maharaja bling, head to Johari Bazaar. It’s a bit like an Aladdin’s cave, with heaps of precious stones and glittering metals. Handmade necklaces and any jewelry set with precious stones are the perfect souvenirs to remember your vacation in Jaipur many years after!

You’ll find carpets, dyed fabrics, and brassware at Tripolia Bazaar. There are also rows and rows of the colorful lac bangles that are so iconically worn by Indian women!

Finally, head to Chandpole Bazaar. It continues its long history of selling sculptures made from marble, wood or stone. The marble carvings are particularly gorgeous!

  • Cost  – Pay for what you buy!
  • How long should I stay here?  90 minutes +!
  • Getting there –   Depends on which bazaar you want. Either walk or grab a Tuk Tuk

5.00 pm- Monkey Temple

monkey temple

The Monkey Temple, or Galta Ji Temple, is a temple dedicated to Hanuman, the Hindu monkey god.  Aside from being popular with tourists, the temple complex is still a sacred pilgrimage site for Hindu devotees

There are actually a series of temples to explore here and taking them all on will take you a few hours. It is a must-see in Jaipur in 3 days.

Take a Tuk Tuk to the bottom of the hill. Your driver will wait around if you pay him for his time and this may be the easiest and safest opinion.

Then you walk up the temple and make your way up the winding pathways to the summit. The monkeys are absolutely everywhere, watch your valuables and do not get too close to them as they can become aggressive.

The view from the top is great and it is a great spot from where to take in the sun-set. Bring a torch as making your way down after dark can be a bit tricky.

  • Cost  – Donation for maintenance
  • Getting there  – Hire a Tuk Tuk or cab and ask the driver to wait for you

7.00 pm – Dinner at Arya Niwaz

Dinner at Arya Niwaz

Arya Niwaz is an (expensive) Jaipur hotel that has an excellent, well-priced restaurant that is open to the public. It offers some of the best traditional vegetarian food in Jaipur and the menu format allows you to try multiple options. I recommend the Bindi (Okra) and Aubergine dishes. The salads are also decent and are washed in mineral water.

They don’t allow alcohol to be consumed on the premises but if you sit in the garden nobody is exactly watching you…

  • Cost  – $3 – $5 for a feast
  • Getting there –   Grab a Tuk Tuk. It’s a 10-15 minute ride in evening traffic

Zostel Jaipur

Zostel Jaipur

Zostel Jaipur is the two-time winner of the best hostel in India prize, so you know you’re in good hands here! It’s situated in the city center near the Hawa Mahal. There’s free wifi, air conditioning for humid summers, and regular social events!

  • Free Parking

Jaipur Itinerary Day 3

You may have 3 days in Jaipur, but there’s no need to search high and low wondering what to do in Jaipur next! Our incredible 3-day itinerary in Jaipur rounds up the final Jaipur attractions that will stoke your curiosity and steal your breath. Be sure to bring your best travel camera to record these precious moments!

07:30 am – Amer Fort

Jaipur fort India

The jewel in the crown of Jaipuri tourism is without any doubt the splendid, epic, and captivating Amer Fort and Palace. Located some 20km away from Jaipur city, the fortress is built into the surrounding hills and was once t…

The best way to get here is to hire a Tuk Tuk for half day. He will drive you here, wait for you, can then stop by the Jal Mahal on the return leg and drop you either at your hotel or at our lunch spot.

The Fort itself is big with a number of different sections, It does get busy most days so get here EARLY. A guided tour is a good way to make the most of the fort.

Note that Tuk Tuk drivers will offer to take you textile stops on the way back from Amer Fort. If you are in the market for some, then do consider this but be mindful that they take you to their friends/cousins shop rather than the one that has the best wares. Personally I got an awesome shirt made via this method.

  • How long should I stay here?
  • Getting there –   It’s an hours drive from the centre of Jaipur. Hire a driver for half a day.

12.00 pm – Anokhi Museum of Hand Block Printing

new tourist places in jaipur

Block printing is a proper Rajasthani tradition and some of the best block print work in the whole world is still done in Jaipur. If you are visiting Jaipur for the first time then you will certainly notice the blocks and fabrics on sale around you.

The Anokhi Museum is the stunning result of a true labor of love. It was founded by an Indian family and remains a privately-owned, small organization.

Anokhi is dedicated to preserving and promoting the threatened local hand block printing industry, and we think it’s doing a fabulous job.

There’s a small collection of historical textiles that help document the  evolution of hand block printing  in India. The focus, however, is on contemporary hand block printing from the 1960s to the present day.

There’s a rich permanent collection of clothing, raw fabrics and home furnishings that showcases the many varied patterns that these artisans have created in the last 60 years! This is accompanied by a photographic collection and items from the production process.

Learning about the different kinds of dyes (from natural to chemical processes) and tools (including brass and wooden blocks, as well as carving tools) is really an interesting experience to add to your Jaipur itinerary! The Anokhi Museum also hosts various temporary exhibitions. These might explore unique kinds of bedding from a small village or the use of traditional techniques in more contemporary styles of clothing. Don’t miss out!

  • Getting there  –  Its en route back from Amer Fort

1.00 pm – Jal Mahal

Jal Mahal

Rising out of a body of glimmering water, Jal Mahal, or the Water Palace, has to be one of the most serene Jaipur points of interest! It was constructed at the end of the 18th century as a hunting lodge and was later renovated into the elegant palace we see today.

You can stop off here on the way back from Amer Fort and get your photo ops. Now, the Jal Mahal is also particularly beautiful at sunset but unfortunately, the sun doesn’t usually set at midday. Sorry about that bt this itinerary has to run on a schedule!

You’re probably wondering how a palace just “floats” on a lake and that’s a valid question! Firstly, you only see one level of the palace from above ground; below the water are a further four stories! When the palace was built, it wasn’t surrounded by a lake as the area was experiencing a severe drought.

To preserve the palace when the drought passed, the palace’s pink sandstone walls were coated in special lime mortar to prevent water seeping into the monument. Note that access to the Palace is by special request and private tour only.

  • Getting there  –   It’s a 12 minute ride from the block museum

2.30 pm – Late Lunch at Anokhi

coffee cafe in amed

Anokhi is one of my favorite lunch spots in Jaipur. Located near Haveli & Sanjay Marg and set in a peaceful garden environment, they specialize in creating and serving up delicious, healthy, modern fusion foods. Dishes here include semolina pasta and vegetarian sushi. They also have a mega selection of tea, do great coffee, and filling cakes!

Prices are high for Jaipuri standards but don’t trouble most westerner budgets to be honest.

  • Cost – $10 per person
  • Getting there  –  Have your driver drop you here

4.00 pm – Gem Palace

Keeping with the theme of Jaipuri industries next up is a trip to the cities leading gem emporium (or gemporium…)

A veritable treasure trove, the Gem Palace is one of the best places to visit in Jaipur in 3 days! It’s home to both antique and modern jewelry that’s been in hot demand since the mid-19th century. If you’re shopping, be prepared to fork out your money but rest assured that the quality is unbeatable.

The store is owned by the Kasliwal family who first gained fame as court jewelers to the maharajas of India. The skilled jewelers and gem cutters passed their skills down to the present generation who have also brought in Western influences.

  • Cost  – Pay for what you buy
  • Getting there  –  Take a Tuk Tuk or cab

5.30 pm – Nahargarh Fort

Nahargarh Fort Jaipur

Nahargarh Fort’s walls are visible from many parts of Jaipur so it would be rude not to visit.

The story goes that while the fort was being built, strange things started happening. Each day the workers would come to work to find the previous day’s work destroyed.

The ruling Maharaja investigated and found that the land was haunted by the spirit of a tiger! To placate the tiger, a shrine to it was built and the fort was named after him: Nahargarh, meaning “abode of the tiger”!

Before you get lost in the wonders of  Nahargarh Fort itself , appreciate the fantastic views of Jaipur and the countryside that the hilltop location affords!

The fort was constructed in 1734 and you can still see the original 1km-long walls. Many of the other original structures have been destroyed. The highlight of the fort is the palace which dates from the late 19th century when it was used by Madho Singh II to keep his favorite concubines away from the disapproval of his officials and wives!

If you enjoy Indian sites with interesting stories, check out our guide to  the most mysterious places in India.

This is a very popular spot for Bollywood, music video & Instagram shoots. I’m not sure the Tiger spirit would approve.

  • Getting there  –  It’s a 12 minute ride

Active Roots Security Belt

Stash your cash safely with this money belt. It will keep your valuables safely concealed, no matter where you go.

It looks exactly like a normal belt  except for a SECRET interior pocket perfectly designed to hide a wad of cash, a passport photocopy or anything else you may wish to hide. Never get caught with your pants down again! (Unless you want to…)

When deciding when to visit Jaipur, the weather is the most important factor to keep in mind. Summers are incredibly hot, with temperatures reaching as high as 45 °C/113 °F. The added burden of dust and pollution makes summer even more unbearable. If you do visit Jaipur during this time, make sure to choose hotels with air conditioning and to drink lots of water!

Winter (from October to March) is actually the best time to visit Jaipur. The weather is warm and dry during the day but some nights can be very chilly! This is actually peak season so book your accommodation as soon as possible if you’re busy planning a trip to Jaipur.

Between August and September is monsoon season. Rainfall ranges between mild and moderate, and floods are rare. However, it is quite humid during this time. Photographers, though, will find an advantage to going on a Jaipur tour during this time. The monuments are fresh from the recent showers and the colors are more vivid!

new tourist places in jaipur

The only way to get around Jaipur is by motor vehicle. The city is not suitable for walking primarily because of the big distances between attractions. However, aside from this, walking even manageable distances is simply not fun. Pavements are shoddy, traffic fumes punishing and roads dangerous to cross. Personally, I would not ever consider cycling in Jaipur either as the traffic is simply far too dangerous.

Fortunately, Tuk Tuk’s, cabs, and Motor’s (bikes) are plentiful and cheap. Uber operates across the city and is a lot cheaper than hailing transport on the street. If you do hail one from the street, barter very hard.

Planning a trip to Jaipur? Then this is what you need to know!

The weather in Jaipur ranges from punishing heat, damp humidity in monsoon, and gets a bit cool in winter. Packing for India can be a challenge as the environment and weather changes depending on where you are. In the warmer months, pack loose, thin clothes but remember to dress modestly to avoid unwanted attention. This is the mother of all Jaipur travel tips!

Bring a water bottle, hand sanitizer, diarrhea medication, and paracetamol in case Delhi Belly/Gandi’s revenge strikes.

Jaipur isn’t an especially dangerous city but you will need your wits about you. One of the more unusual safety hazards you may encounter on your Jaipur tour is monkeys!  Hold tight to your possessions as they’re notorious for grabbing. Monkey bites can transmit disease so keep your distance. Other than that;

  • Take care when crossing roads.
  • Pickpocketing does happen in crowded areas so be wary.
  • Scams on foreigners are common all across India. There are far too many to list so as a rule, be just a bit wary of everybody.
  • India has a bad reputation for overall sanitation which is semi-justified. Avoid tap water, bring hand sanitizer and only eat hot street food.
  • Women travelers should take extra care. Dress modestly, avoid quiet, dark areas, and do not accept drinks from strangers.

Don’t Forget Your Travel Insurance for Jaipur

ALWAYS sort out your backpacker insurance before your trip. There’s plenty to choose from in that department, but a good place to start is Safety Wing .

They offer month-to-month payments, no lock-in contracts, and require absolutely no itineraries: that’s the exact kind of insurance long-term travellers and digital nomads need.

The Patrika Gate is a colourful and artistic beauty that exemplifies the city’s illustrious history and culture. The Patrika Gate, inaugurated in 2016, is a more recent addition to Jaipur’s environment than conventional historical landmarks. Its modernism does not lessen its importance, though.

The gate’s design is an alluring fusion of beautiful artwork and Rajasthani architecture. Its nine pavilions represent Rajasthan’s rich cultural diversity, such as music, art, dance, and folklore.

The Lord Hanuman-dedicated main temple is made of pink sandstone and has elaborately carved pillars and arches. There are many holy kunds (water ponds) within the complex where devotees take ritual showers because they believe these waters to be holy. The temple is bordered by natural springs.

The bustling and well-known Bapu Bazaar, which lies in the centre of Jaipur, Rajasthan, captures the spirit of Pink City’s rich cultural legacy and retail attractiveness. This lively bazaar, which bears Mahatma Gandhi’s name, is a maze of twisting, small alleyways that are alive with activity and colour.

It is often called the Government Central Museum and is a preserved example of Indo-Saracenic architecture. A staggering 16 art galleries house the vast collection of antiquities from all around the world that Albert Hall Museum has amassed.

11. Abhaneri Step Well

Abhaneri Step Well

One of the biggest step wells in the world, Chand Baori, also known as Stepwells of Abhaneri, is located in Rajasthan. The main purpose of creating step wells was to store rainwater in the desert regions and act as natural air conditioners during the oppressively hot summers. The enormous pavilion, complicated construction and excellent geometry, including windows, galleries, and balconies, is thirteen stories high.

The shimmering green water shows out in contrast to the stone stairways as one looks from the top of the board towards the bottom, making it a sight to behold. A photographer may get great angles and photo chances when the sun is high in the sky because of the stairs’ intricate maze-like patterning in the light and shadows. The Chand Baori is a photographer’s dream because of its amazing architecture and the intricate geometric design of the entire building.

The Abhaneri step has many tales and people attached to it because it is so old. It is stated that no one has ever been able to descend and ascend using the same set of steps. 

Timings:  The stepwell is open to visitors on all days from 08.00 A.M. to 06.00 P.M.

12. Chokhi Dhani

A mock village named “Chokhi Dhani” is located about 20 miles outside Jaipur’s main city and is an amazing representation of Rajasthani culture and cuisine. The word Chokhi Dhani means Rajasthani Culture in its literal sense.

The small village was constructed in 1989 across a 10-acre area with a specific goal: to draw tourists and introduce them to the genuine Rajasthani culture and traditions.

There are many activities one can enjoy here at Chokhi Dhani Jaipur. The famous Haldighati Battle is enacted here by artists for all tourists. The village also offers animal, cart, and boat rides. You will also be welcomed by performers doing the Kalebeliya and other Rajasthani dance forms.

Entry Fees:  The cost depends on the dining option you choose. It ranges from INR 750 to INR 1200 for adults and INR 450 to INR 800 for children. Entry for children below 3 years of age is free.

13. Gaitore Cenotaphs – Gaitore ki Chhatriyaan

Gaitore ki Chhatriyaan

The Kachwaha, a Rajput dynasty who dominated the area, interred their dead at Gaitore Ki Chhatriyan, their royal cremation grounds. The complex is dotted with the cenotaphs of the royals, giving the impression of being made up of both elaborate towers and scaled-down open-air palaces. The structures designate the locations of prior leaders’ cremations.

The cenotaphs are made of white marble from Makrana, which is of the highest quality. Some ‘chhatris’ are adorned with sculptures of Apsara (nymphs), Gandharvas (musicians), or processions. Maharaja Jai Singh II’s cenotaph, with its 20 sculptured columns, is the most spectacular.

Panna Meena ka Kund jaipur tourism places

Panna Meena ka Kund is another stepwell located in Jaipur. It is part of the Amber region of Jaipur. The only completely operable stepwell repaired in Jaipur is Panna Meena ka Kund. It goes back to a time when there was no piped water. The Kund has long aided the nearby villages in getting access to potable water.

According to several residents, Panna Meena ka Kund was constructed so that Amer’s inhabitants could gather water that they then utilised at numerous adjacent temples for rituals. Women also came here to fill water containers for consumption around the house.

To commemorate the triumph of Maharaja Sawai Ishwari Singh, the magnificent victory tower known as Sargasuli Tower has stood upright amid the pink city of Jaipur since 1749. The rivalry between the two brothers – Ishwari Singh and Madho Singh- is also interesting. The marriage of Sawai Jai Singh II to the Mewari princess Sisodia may have had a clause mandating that Maharani Chandra Kanwar’s child become the King. However, Sawai Jai Singh I wanted Ishwari Singh to rule instead of him, something the Maharana of Mewar disapproved of. This disapproval led to a rivalry between the two brothers for the throne, leading to the Battle of Rajmahal. Sawai Ishwari Singh won and ordered the erection of this minaret in commemoration of his victory.

In contrast to the pink colour in the city’s buildings and market areas, the tower is a seven-storeyed octagonal structure constructed using a combination of Mughal and Rajput architectural traditions. Visitors may see the breathtaking 360-degree panoramic view of Jaipur City from the top of this tower.
