Pink City

Mouna Nanaiah
Day 4 - Jaipur - The Pink cityChecking in to a heritage hotel after 4 days was a welcome change for me. After a night of deluxe sleep, I was prepared for a spectacular day. Although entire Jaipur sight seeing can be concluded on local transport, I rented a bike for the day at 600 INR. Hawa Mahal, City palace, Jantar Mantar, Amer Fort, Jal Mahal, Nahargarh fort and Jaigarh fort are to not be missed. Opposite Hawa Mahal are a couple of cafes from where one can enjoy the street view and munch on some amazing delicacies. Overlooking the city of Jaipur, Nahargarh fort was built by the founder of Jaipur. If you want to see the pink city that stretches across the horizon surrounded by hills, this is the place to be at sunset.Road from Jaipur to Jaisalmer ~600 kms is the longest route to be covered in this itinerary. After a sumptuous meal of chola bhatura I boarded my 10 hours bus to the golden city.
This is the area that contains most of the monuments.
