It is winter, my favorite season of the year. Nothing is deadlier than a cozy chilly weather, a cutting chai (Tea), warm comfortable boots, big stylish jacket and a relaxed holiday experiencing the colorful culture of India. Every place offers a unique experience for everyone. During my Jaipur visit, I was looking forward to experience the rich and colorful Rajasthani culture. Winter is the best season to visit Jaipur and avoid the infamous Jaipur scorching summer. I and my boyfriend (Now husband) had taken a flight to Jaipur due to time constraint. However, road trip from Delhi to Jaipur is highly recommended. One gets to enjoy the serenity of Aravallis Range. NH8 is a 6 lane well maintained highway from Delhi. Many restaurants have come up in the highway which serves as a pit stop to the tired tourists.
We chose for a budget comfortable stay in a very convenient locality, which at the same time could provide us with first-hand experience of the art and culture of the place. Our stay for the weekend was Madhuban heritage home. It is a sweet little heritage home in the center of Jaipur City, Bani Park. It is located in a serene residential neighborhood, in the center of the city and easily accessible from Railway station and only half an hour distance from the airport. Madhuban bestowed us with the first taste of the Rajasthani culture. It is an authentic Rajasthani styled home with traditional furnishings and décor. Meals were served in a small but beautifully decorated Restaurant and a pristine lawn at the rear of the hotel. Meals served were bit overpriced and were customized to serve Foreigner guests.
