This is one of the most magnificent forts in not only Jaipur but in the entire state of Rajasthan. The main area of the fort is covered by a royal palace which is a mix of white marble, pink and pale yellow sandstone. The palace has four parts and each of them has their personal courtyard as well. You can easily consider taking an elephant ride up and down if the budget permits. Suraj Pol is the entry gate of the fort and the main courtyard is named as Jaleb Chowk. There is another gate here called the Chand Pol as well. For those who are a little religious do not forget to check out and pray at the Siladevi Temple within the fort. Overall, the place has a spectacular architecture and the planned structure will surely mesmerize you.
On the last day of my trip, I visited the Amber Fort which is located on a hill and overlooking Moata Lake. Also known as Amer Fort and Amer Palace, it is built with red sandstone and marble consisting of the Diwan-e-Aam or the "Hall of Public Audience", the Diwan-e-Khas or the "Hall of Private Audience", the Sheesh Mahal (mirror palace) or Jai Mandir, and the Sukh Niwas where a cool climate is artificially created by winds that blow over the water cascade within the palace. Amber Fort is known for its artistic style, blending both Hindu and Rajput elements. It also has four courtyards each with its own entry gate. Elephant rides are also available upto the main gate of the fort.
Take the ride to Amer palace, which looks like a picture perfect set from a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film. Located a little outside the bustling city, this labyrinth of a palace also houses the enchanting Sheesh Mahal or The palace of mirrors. Beautiful mirror work embedded on the walls and ceiling, sparkling in the sunlight is a sight you will rarely see in your lifetime, a glistening jewel if I may call it. Another spectacular structure is the beautiful and well manicured lawn placed in the middle of the lake that surrounds the palace. Walk around the palace, go trigger happy and avoid the so called tour guides. Thirsty from all that walking? The palace also has a coffee shop and a souvenir shop where you can grab a quick coffee and pick up a few souvenirs to remember your trip.
Day 4 Morning - WOW! Amber fort was the best... For some reason, I found it even more appealing than the Taj Mahal. I am not drawing comparisons of any sort, its just based in what I felt during the trip. Every window with a view of its own, a proud and magnificent fort atop the rocky hills overlooking the placid lake, the flocks of pigeons and people clad in their traditional dresses. The place is a time capsule in many senses, and hauntingly romantic. Weather was very pleasant even when Delhi was freezing at this time of the year. The only thing that might ruin your experience is the hawkers who wont let go of you once you have given even a glimpse at their goods. Especially near the place where you queue for the elephant ride. They ruined a good part of the ride for me. Avoid paying any attention or interest. You can do with the shopping after completing the fort. For bikers, go past the fort and palace entrance down the road for parking lot. Its just by the side of where you queue for elephant ride. The fort opens around 8 am and closes at 5pm. There are few hotels very close to the fort, Trident, Regenta and Lake View, in decreasing order of rental. I stayed one night at Lake View. You can keep your bikes in the porch here. Pretty safe.

Amber Fort, (11 km North of central Jaipur, local bus #5 from Hawa Mahal or New Gate), ☎ +91 14 1253 0293. 08:00-17:30. This massive fort-palace complex built in hybrid Hindu-Muslim style dates back to Raja Man Singh and was the royal palace of the Kachwahas from c. 1600-1727. The name has nothing to do with the rather pretty pastel yellow colour; instead, the fort is named after the town of Amber, in turn named after the goddess Amba. The main sights within the fort include the Sheesh Mahal, adorned with thousands on thousands of mirror tiles on the walls and ceiling. The fort/palace grounds are sprawling and the information panels (hindi/english) are somewhat limited, so it might be worth getting an audio guide or a real guide. It's a bit of a hike up from the town, and the touristy thing to do is to hitch an elephant ride to the top (in order to get an elephant it is better to to arrive there in the morning, otherwise at midday the elephants are over. But the road that elephants pass is not so long).
The palce is located high on a hill, and is the most famous monument in Jaipur. The town of Amer was originally built by Meenas, and later it was ruled by Raja Man Singh. Amer Fort is known for its artistic Hindu style elements. The fort also overlooks Maota Lake.
Best fort in Jaipur and one of the largest one of Rajasthan, Amer fort is a place must to visit. Home of Raja Sawai Jai Singh II who discovered Jaipur, and a fort protected by Jai Garh fort over it's top is one of the best destination in Jaipur. You can explore whole fort and have a look about garden, dark stairs, hidden paths and royal rooms made for the king. Amer is a place where you can experience the technically and beauty of construction all together and it will leave you speechless. You can also go for camel and jeep ride at Amer fort.
Places to visit: 1) Amer Fort: It is the most beautiful part of the city. Located on the outskirts, it is around 11km from the main city. It has a blend of the Rajput and the Mughal architecture. There is the Shila Mata Temple of the patron Goddess of the royal family, inside the fort. The best time to visit this place is in the evening. After sunset, there is an amazing light show inside of the fort.

Day 7, 8 am - We drove to Amer Fort, one of the 3 Forts that are built on the hills surrounding Jaipur. The road leading to this Fort is not SUV-friendly, so you may want to park it in one of the parking lots at the foot of the hill and hire a ride to take you to the gate of the Fort. This is yet another expansive Fort, so make sure that you take the A/V guide only if you have the time! As we had a packed itinerary, we picked a local guide ... even though he could have had an easy way out (owing to our time-constraint), he insisted that we spend at least 2 hours touring this place!
The most famous of Jaipur’s heritage is perhaps the Amer fort. Its sandstone walls overlooking the lake stand tall and proud. The inside of the fort is as breath-taking as the outside, and the sheesh mahal and the well preserved abode of the royal family is enough to transport one back in time.
With our stomach full, we started with Amer fort. We spent almost 3 hours exploring the beauty of the fort. We had a good time admiring the palace and little bit sneak peek of the guides who were explaining (to the groups who hired them) the story of the Amer Palace and its history. So huge and marvelous it was, I wonder how the people used to spend their living in the palace. The fort area itself was like a city. 3 hours also were not enough to explore it completely. We burnt enough calories there in walking around. The Royal's indeed had a glory of time living there I believe.
Amer Fort: The Amer Fort is located in Amer and is one of the most famous tourist attractions. The fort is huge and extremely beautiful. Besides, it helps to know the history of the rulers who built this fort. The fort is built in red and white sandstones with carvings on the ceilings and paintings on the walls. The most important aspect of this fort is the sheesh mahal or mirror palace. This palace is shown in many movies and is a favorite for photography lovers. A light and sound show takes place here every evening that highlights the history of Jaipur. It takes about 2-3 hours to see the entire fort.There are vendors selling beautiful earrings inside the fort which can be purchased after bargaining. But it is worth the buy!
Magnificent fort located at 11 Km from Jaipur city built by Raja Man Singh. Amer fort is spread across 4 square Km area.The fort still stands as a grand example of ancient Indian architecture. It is known for its blend of Rajput and Hindu style of architecture and mixture of Hindu and Muslim style of ornamentation. The carvings on the ceiling and the walls are extraordinary features of this fort.Entry fees of Amer Fort also called as Amber Fort is Rs 100.It took us around 2 hours to explore the Fort.There is a tunnel in Amer fort which leads to .
You have not seen Jaipur properly if you have not visited the Amer Fort. One of the key things to do in Jaipur is a visit to this UNESCO heritage fort. Just outside the city. Amer Fort or Amber fort used to the powerhouse of the rulers before Jaipur became the capital. I was raring to go see it and would have done so possibly on the first day in Jaipur itself. However, having just reached Jaipur, we were not ready to start early. Amer Fort is quite well documented and me havingdevoured it all, was ready to see all that I had imagined. Here are few pics of the visit.
We stopped our car at the opulent palace, Amer Fort, an impressive stairway from Jalebi Chowk leads into the main palace grounds. This palace, along with Jaigarh Fort, is located immediately above on the Cheel ka Teela (Hill of Eagles) of the same Aravalli range of hills. Here, at the entrance to the right of the stairway steps is the Sila Devi temple where the Rajput Maharajas worshiped. The building to the left of the entrance gate is called the Jai Mandir, which is exquisitely embellished with glass inlaid panels and multi-mirrored ceilings.
So I woke up to a very lazy morning and I went around walking to have some clicks of Hawa Mahal and the Jal Mahal also Jantar Mantar was on my list to visit which I did. I was busy at these places and it was Noon 01:00 PM. Now I headed towards a restaurant there and had my lunch, I ate as slow as a tortoise and then I proceeded to Amer Fort. I loved the history of it and my excitement was par high when I found a Cafe Coffee Day outlet here. I went into and quickly ordered my Espresso, I loved that and then I proceeded back to famous Chokhi Dhani ! I recommend each and every tourist to visit the Chokhi Dhani for sure.
Amber fort is around 11 km from Jaipur. The Fort is located on a hill. There are beautiful structures inside the fort complex. You can also enjoy Panoramic view of Maota lake. The main attraction in Amber fort is Elephant ride. Elephant will take you the main entrance of fort like Maharajas entered in old time.
You can not leave Jaipur without paying a visit to Amer Fort. It is like going to Agra and not visiting Taj Mahal. Just look at that! It is gorgeous beyond your imagination.It is a huge huge palace. Do not hurry. Not a bit. Just take your time and explore (not exploit) this beauty as much as you can. If an elephant ride is what you fancy, then drop by early in the morning and take a tour on royal elephants.
Built over 8 decades ago, Amer Fort has gracefully stood the test of time and is still a hot-spot for locals and tourists alike! On a bright sunny day such as this, one would find several vendors selling authentic colourful Rajasthani handicrafts outside the Fort.
Hawa Mahal - Palace of Wind
As one of the most distinctive part of Jaipur, Hawa Mahal located amidst the busy streets is something that cannot be missed. The grandeur of the place surely catches the attention of each one passing by. The structure is made from pink sandstone and has a honey-comb like shape that makes it all the more interesting. There are 5 storey in the monument and surely looks extraordinary. The place was built by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh in the year 1799 to help the ladies watch all the happenings on the streets including the processions that took place from time to time. From the extreme top of the Mahal, you can have a spectacular view of the Jantar Mantar as well as City Palace. For those interested in exhibits, the good news comes in the form of a small museum within the mahal that has great paintings, ceremonial armours as well as rich relics. For the entry, move to the backside of the complex.
Hawa Mahal was one of the highlights of the trip. Popularly known as the 'Palace of Winds', it is a beautiful five-storey palace built of red and pink sandstone. It is a pyramid-like structure with some intricate designs. As the name suggests, I felt the calm wind and coolness everywhere in the palace. It has only slopes and no stairs to connect each storey. I got an excellent view of the city from the top of the palace. It also has an archaeological museum.
It gets its name as the mahal has around 953 small windows which aided cross winds.
Our Jaipur journey began with the landmark of the city, the Hawa Mahal , an imposing structure. The name literally means Palace of winds or Palace of the Breeze. Built 1799 by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh, and designed by Lal Chand Usta it depicts the form of the crown of Krishna, the Hindu god. The pyramidal shape combined with the numerous screened windows makes the structure look like a giant honeycomb. This 5 storied stunning semi-octagonal monument has 953 small windows called jharokhas, decorated with intrinsic lattice work and is a fine piece of Rajput architecture. The latticed windows allowed the royal ladies to view the everyday life in the street below from the palace without being seen. The beauty of the Hawa Mahal lies in its fragile appearance, which belies its strength. The interiors are connected by ramps and there are no stairs to reach the upper floors. A unique feature of the building is that it remains cool even during the harsh summers. This is due to the excellent ventilation that allows cool air to freely flow throughout the building. Situated on the main thoroughfare in the heart of Jaipur’s business centre, in the middle of the bustling Johari Bazaar, near the Badi Chaupad (the big square), this palace rises to a height of 50 feet. It is built of red and pink sandstone and forms a part of the City Palace, which was our next stop.
The Rajput ruler made this beautiful five storeyed palace in the heart of the city and which is also popularly known as the Palace of the Winds. The Palace is said to have 953 “Jharokas” and in the shape crown of Lord Krishna. This was made to facilitate an airy palace for the women.
Hawa mahal which means the Palace of Winds, is situated just at a 5 minutes walk from the exit of the city palace. This mahal consists of many windows so that the queens of the olden days could witness all the street festivals going on in the city without having the need to show their faces ( Old tradition in India). It is situated right in the market area. another palace to visit.
Hawa Mahal is the landmark of Jaipur, it was constructed by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh to enable the ladies of the Royal Household to be able to see all the Royal Processions happening in the city, it has a museum in it too depicting the royal clothes, armours, ammunition.
After a lesson in astronomy, history proved to provide an interesting insight whilst at my next stop Hawa Mahal, the "Palace of Winds", an intimidating pyramidal, honeycombed wall, serving the purpose of a five storey high screen for the royal women, the Pardeh-Giyan or "the veiled ones". A practice that resonated between the Rajput and the Mughal courts, from the time of Akbar. The detailed latticework as it happened to be, conditioned the air, rendering the palace its name.
Day 6, 5:30 pm - There was little to see here, so we just explored this place by ourselves.
The next spot on the itinerary is the iconic Hawa Mahal. It’s outer wall lined with dozens of windows makes it to almost every tourist guide of Jaipur city. One can choose to climb up the ramp to witness the view of Jaipur from one of those tiny windows. But I didn’t find the effort to be worthwhile.
We started off with Hawa Mahal, City Palace and Jantar Mantar. While Hawa Mahal and Jantar Mantar were touch and go for us, we took our own sweet time to see the city palace. One of the reasons would be that the Palace had so many spots for Mini to take pictures and for me to pose ????
Hawa Mahal: The 'Palace of the Winds' or 'Hawa Mahal' is located in the old city and is of prominent importance. The palace was built in red and pink sandstone and is now used as an office. Tourists can visit the palace and can head up to a few floors. From the top, one can see the busy lanes of the old city which are now crowded by various shops selling handicrafts, apparel and gems.
Hawa Mahal : My last visit list was Hawa Mahal, Just besides the Jantar Mantar. No wonder this is the most distinctive landmarks of Jaipur and I visited it in last. Hawa Mahal is an extraordinary pink-painted delicately honeycombed hive that rises a dizzying five storeys. The top offers stunning views over Jantar Mantar and the City Palace. You wait there till dark to see the Hawa Mahal in night from outside.
Did you know that there is more to the Hawa Mahal than its facade? At least until this visit, I did not! The whole structure was constructed to represent the crown of Lord Krishna, the favourite God of the Royals of Jaipur. The seemingly single block structure of the facade represents the jewelled front part of the crown while in the rear it has a courtyard where guests of the erstwhile Kings used to be entertained during Holi celebrations. It is complete with a water bath which has now been converted to a fountain display. On three sides, the courtyard is surrounded by corridors/ assembly areas and on the fourth side (rear of the facade), there are rooms with a purpose. The entry to each level is through a special gateway called pol and each level is accessed through a ramp. The main reason for constructing the Hawa Mahal was to allow the Royal ladies to view processions while still maintaining purdah. The entire structure incorporates hundreds of Jharokas which provide superb cross-ventilation and air conditioning. The lowest level is where the Royal ladies of bygone times "window shopped". The upper levels house rooms meant for grooming and private religious ceremonies. The last two levels are open to the sky and are called the Prakash Mahal which was meant for use during winters when light and warmth were scarce. The monument also includes strategically placed surveillance towers. In addition, a secret passageway connects the Hawa Mahal to the residential area of the City Palace. Quite obviously, the passageway is not accessible to the public. All windows placed in the facade wall offer a semi-panoramic view of the street below. Window panes are coloured to allow for play of light as well as to block views of the bygone royal goings-on from prying eyes.
Hawa Mahal:Entry Cost: Rs 50 for Indians & Rs 200 for Foreign TouristsDuration of Opening: 9 AM to 4:30 PMHawa Mahal ("Palace of winds" or "Palace of the Breeze") is named because it was essentially a high screen wall built so the women of the royal household could observe street festivals while unseen from the outside.So much for privacy back in those days :P
1) Hawa Mahal:Entry Cost: Rs 50/- (Indians) & Rs 200/- (Foreigners)Entry Time: 9.00 AM -4:30 PM
HaWa Mahal : 'Palace Of The Winds' is the major attraction this city..It is located in the heart of the city , it is beautiful five-storey palace built by Maharaja Sawai pratap singh who belonged to Rajput dynasty . The main architect of this palace is believed to have constructed in the form of the crown of Lord Krishna. The main intention behind the construction of the mahal was to facilitate the royal women and and provide them a view of everyday life through windows , as they never appeared in public. WE loved the architecture, It was designed as a beehive castle with small windows . This palace is actually famous for its windows or 'Jharokas' which enable circulation of air within the structure . We had an excellent view of the city from this palace.
I was tired after traveling overnight 14 hrs bus journey from Jhansi but my excitement took over tiredness. By 11 AM I was ready to explore the pink city. The moment I came out of hotel, 2-3 auto drivers rushed to me and offered me Jaipur sightseeing for one day at 650 rs.I knew that some of places were very near to my hotel, Bani park area. So I ignored all of them and took another running auto, cost me 50 rs to reach Hawa Mahal (Palace of wind)Stylistic and artistic, these were my two words when I saw Hawa Mahal. Designed in the form of the crown of Krishna. Its unique five-storey exterior, similar to the honeycomb of the beehive with its 953 small windows called jharokhas. Hawa Mahal was constructed so that the palace women trapped in purdah, could watch the street life. Entry fee was 10 rs there but I bought one composite entry pass for 70 rs. It was valid for two days and you can use it for visiting 5 places(Amber palace, Jantar Mantar, Albert Hall, Nahargarh fort, Hawa mahal). Interior of Hawa Mahal is artistic but I really liked the exterior. This architecture is showcased whenever Jaipur is talked about on the touring map.
Starting early, we head towards the Amber Fort, which happened to be around 10 kms from our stay making a drive of 30-45 minutes, where we reached by 9 AM. But before reaching the fort, we have quick stop at the Hawa Mahal to learn some bits and capture some poses.
Our next destination was Hawa Mahal known as Palace of winds. Built of red and pink sandstone, it is the most magnificent monument in the area. This beehive castle with small windows has a height of 50 feet from its base. This structure, erected on a thin shield or podium approximately fifty feet high, has walls less than a foot thick. It is well-known for its windows or 'Jharokhas'. From Hawa Mahal, you have an excellent view of the city. The monument also has an archaeological museum
Jal Mahal also known as Water Palace in English is yet again one of the things to do in Jaipur. It is located in the heart of the famous Man Sagar Lake and near the cenotaphs of royal ladies and Maharanis of the city in the earlier times. Madho Singh was the one behind the formation of the Jal Mahal in the same year as that of Hawa Mahal- 1799. The idea was to get a summer resort made for the royal family. The place was also used for hunting ducks during the warm season. Under the Jal Tarang project going on currently, this place is closed for restoration.
Visitors entry to Jal Mahal is limited and booking has to be done in advance. Most tourists view Jal mahal from the long promenade adjoining the main road. The view is amazing of a standalone palace in the middle of the Man Sagar lake
Same scenario as Udaipur most of the forts will close down by early evening. Jal mahal is again a hangout spot for families. Calm place where one can enjoy some street food with excellent view of Jal Mahal. I decided to commute by bike instead of public transport. One thing I noticed in Jaipur is the crazy traffic, not just the quantity but the way people drive. Believe me I have seen Bangalore, Delhi traffic but Jaipur that day I can't forget. May be It was that for past couple of days It was first time I have entered such kinda city. But still crazy traffic all around is all what I would say. I came back early ordered Dinner from the restaurant below, food was good. Watched an episode of F.R.I.E.N.D.S on TV. Set up the alarm for 5 AM and decide to call it a day.
Who can come to Jaipur and not take a view of the beautiful Jal Mahal. Located in the middle of the Man Sagar lake. The mahal actually appears as if its simply floating on the serene waters. Sadly they have stopped tours of the palace a few years back.
The most popular attraction of Jaipur, Jalmahal left us surprised with the way it is expressing its glory in the terms of gorgeous lights. A huge crowd is gathered here to witness this amazing beauty of the Pink City on the night of Festival of light.
Jal Mahal (Water Palace), (On the way to Amber Fort). A Rajput style architectured palace sits in the center of the Man Sagar lake. The lake is often dry in the winter, but summer monsoons frequently turn it into a beautiful lake filled with water hyacinths. Free on the 18th of May, as well as the Observatory and wind palace.
A place where you can lost all track of time, It is basicall a summer resort for the royal family..in the middle of artificially created reservoir "Man Sagar" made in reign of Madho Singh, the place is so beautiful and serene that you can look at it for hours and still want to be there for couple of more hours. One can not enter the Mahal but can see it from far, Well it is Jaipur's own Marine Drive.
These days they have closed Jal mahal, you can just have its view from some distance. Some local told me its closed, as there are many crocodiles in the river surrounding jal mahal. But still you can admire its beauty from distance, got some pics click. Also, can buy some craft stuff from there as reasonable cost.
Trip first published on Fly with Shaunak
Jal Mahal- Water PalaceShimmering in glory like a jewel, standing in the middle of Man Singh Lake, Jal Mahal captures an eye-popping makeover during the night. Enclosed by Aravalli hills from three sides and the fourth side comprising of intensely inhabited plains, the architectural beauty of the Mughal and Rajputana styles of construction upstands with its five floors.The 255 year old palace, built in red sandstone, showcases only its first floor with remaining four floors under water. The scenic beauty of the palace comes alive at the onset of evening when bathed with lights.
Any trip to Jaipur is incomplete without a visit to Jaipur’s forts and palaces. They are located within close vicinity of each other and are best visited by hiring a vehicle for the day, which gives the flexibility to move at one’s own pace. On the way, is Jal Mahal, which looks really beautiful sitting in the midst of a vast expanse of water. It can be photographed from afar but entry inside is not permitted.
Jal Mahal: Jal Mahal or the Water Palace is located on the Man Sagar Lake. It is an astonishing palace which has five floors, and four of them remain underwater. The entry inside the palace is restricted, but if you are a bird lover or a photography enthusiast, you may stay there for a while and enjoy the view from the pathway outside the palace.
5)Jal Mahal: Located at the center of Mansagar Lake, this five storeyed palace is for floors under water when the lake is full. Due to its cooling architecture, it was used during summers. This palace is closed for tourists and can be seen only from a distance.
Jal Mahal : Soon after I leave for Jal Mahal. When I reach here, It was early evening. It is a delighted spot to spend a good evening. Jal Mahal is made of red stone and is 5 stories high. The 4 floors of the palace stay under the water and it is only the 5th floor that is visible. Visitors are only allowed to see the Jal Mahal Palace from a distance. Entry is not allowed in the palace. So I did not a chance to go inside. Someday, I hope that I get a chance to see what inside the royal palace and this marvellous architecture. I enjoy having a sip of tea while watching the Sun going down. I brought few Rajasthani gifts for my little sister from the footpath/roadside small shops. Remember - bargaining is the key but don't do too much. they are very poor people.
Once you complete these two masterpieces there is just another one waiting for you 10 mins away – Jal mahal. It is another exquisite piece of work with the backdrop of mountains in the middle of water. One can witness some excellent sunsets in this place. One can amuse oneself wearing local dresses and clicking pictures. There is a large area where you can relax and plan your next day schedule.
4) Jal Mahal:Also known as "Water Palace" it is located in the middle of the Man Sagar Lake.
While I was coming back from Amber fort, I also stopped by a place from where I could see Jal Mahal. Jal Mahal (Water Palace) is located in the middle of the Man Sagar Lake.
It takes time, the palace is big and then we head back to the Jaipur city, with a quick stop by the Jal Mahal, which at present is just a far away structure standing in the center of a lake.
Birla Mandir Temple
A completely marble made Mandir, Birla Mandir in Jaipur is not only famous but one that gives a feeling of peace and calmness to the visitors. Though, there are a number of Birlan Mandirs around the nation, the one in this city is quite hugs. The cleanliness, the maintenance and the well-planned structure and system is bound to take you off your feet. Apart from that, the architecture of the entire monument is worth a heavy sigh. The temple is a dedication to Lord Vishnu and Goddess Laxmi. It is also known as the LaxmiNarayan Temple for these reasons. There are quite a number of foreign tourists visiting this place all throughout the year.
After all these places, we moved towards other attractions of the Pink City. During our way, We went to the famous Birla temple. As the picture is suggesting, the place looks bathing in the White light and attracts locals as well as foreign tourists. Very nearby place to Birla temple, lies Moti Dungri Temple.
Birla Mandir is a part of one of the several Birla Mandirs located all around the country. The grand temple is located on an elevated ground at the base of Moti Dungari hill in Rajasthan. It is dedicated to Lord Vishnu (Narayan), the preserver and his consort Lakshmi, the Goddess of wealth. The temple is built with finest quality of marbles and standing still on it for more than a minute was sending chills in the bones. The marble work mesmerises the onlookers and the Laxmi Narayan image is just fetching. After paying our tribute to the temple we headed to the City Palace, Jaipur.
Next day we went to Birla Temple formally known as Lakshmi Narayan Temple. The interiors of the temple are adorned with mythological paintings of various Hindu deities. There is a large marble console which depicts all mythological events. The outside of the temple is as beautiful as its interior with steps to the temple, which are also made out of marble.
