Itinerary for Day 2

After exploring the garden, we went straight to Galtaji Temple. There were lots of monkey in the temple premises. The temple was quite old but beautiful.

We had our lunch outside the Fort. We went to Jaigarh fort. It is famous for the world's largest cannon on wheels. This Fort is well structured and offers great views of Amer Fort.

Its been a tiring day but we still have one more Fort on our list so we went to Nahargarh Fort. The sun was about to set and it was beautiful to watch the sun going down from the Fort with the spectacular view of the Jaipur city.

The Fort complex is large and needs 2 to 3 hours so plan your visit accordingly. Fort and the Palace are beautiful and have a significant history. There are various authentic shops for shopping inside Fort. We did some shopping from the Fort.

We started around 9:00 AM to visit some of the places early in the morning when the crowd is less. The first place we visited was a beautiful garden. Sisodiya Rani Ka Bagh is a beautiful morning place. It was serene and calm to start a day in such a beautiful place. The paintings on the walls are intriguing.

We missed getting our Kachoris from the famous restaurant, so we had our breakfast somewhere else, but you should try pyaz kachoris at famous Rawat restaurant. After eating our breakfast, we went to Amer Fort and Palace. We had our guide with us. He told us the history of the Fort and showed us all the intricate details in the design of the Fort, which would not have been possible to notice without him.

We spent the evening enjoying the sunset from the Nahargarh Fort. For dinner, we decided to go to experience Chokhi Dhani. We went there after sunset. Chokhi Dhani is not just a place for food but a full-fledged experience of Rajasthani culture. Its a village set up and there are lots of activities to do apart from just eating food. You can shop, watch local dance forms, get Mehndi tattoo, play local games and experience the architecture of different states all in a single place. Chokhi Dhani is a must-visit place if you want to experience the Rajasthani culture.
