Next day morning I took local tooktook rickshaw (e-Rickshaw) to Jantar Mantar. Its 18th century observatory built by Raja Sawai Jai Singh III. It is a World Heritage Site. The astronomical units and equipments are still in good condition. It has worlds largest SUNDIAL (SAMRAT YANTRA) which is used for time calculation. Also there are some other equipments which are designed by Raja Jai Singh. At Jantar mantar, RTDC has arranged a show to explain mathematics and functioning of these equipments. Do watch.
Opposite to Jantar Mantar, there is City Palace, The Royal residence. You can enter in the city palace after paying a entry fee of Rs. 100. Also,there is facility of Audio Guide which will walk you through palace. There are few historical monuments such as Mubarak Mahal, Chandra Mahal, Diwan-e-Khas, Maharani Palace, Baggi khana etc. I spent there almost 2.5 hour. Near City Palace there is Hawa Mahal and Sargasuli. Also Birla mandir is good option to visit.
Around 9 PM, I boarded a flight to my hometown.
That was end of my Rajasthan Trip.
I would like to add some suggestions for aspirant travellers.
Instead of starting from Jaipur, Udaipur can be better option. You can land at Ahmedabad Airport and travel to Udaipur (5 hrs drive by road). Also there are frequent volvos on Ahmedabad-Udaipur route.
By making Udaipur as starting point you can cover Udaipur, Kumbhalgarh, Haldighati, Ranakpur, Mount Abu, Nathdwara.
Chittorgarh is 2 hrs drive away ( from Nathdwara & Udaipur ), so you can easily complete Chittorgarh trip in a day.
You can go to Ajmer or Jaipur from Chittorgarh (by train/ road. Train will be more convenient)
Ajmer can be seen quickly, as there is nothing much to see except Dargah and Pushkar lake. Instead of going to Jaipur, take a train to Jaisalmer from Ajmer (Phulera station).
By this plan, you can spend a night in SAM DUNES and next day will be for Jaisalmer City Sightseeing.
From Jaisalmer you can take a train to Jodhpur at midnight. This train will reach Jodhpur in the morning, so that you can save a day in travelling.
There are frequent Jodhpur to Jaipur trains.
Ideal route from my experiences is
Udaipur - Nathdwara - Chittorgarh - Ajmer / Jaipur - Jaisalmer - Jodhpur - Jaipur
