The afternoon explores the pink city, the historic center of Jaipur and the area surrounding the City Palace. This is busy, hectic and chaotic Jaipur, expect to be hassled by touts, chocked by pollution and worn down by the heat but there are some great monuments. If all the hassle gets too much head to Jantar Mantar for a moments peace and calm. The afternoon concludes by watching the sunset at the sun temple.
Highlights of the afternoon walk include.
The stunning Hawa Mahal, (Palace of Winds) - where the Maharajah’s wives would spy on daily life of Jaipur hidden by the lattice work screens.
The Jantar Mantar astronomical observation instruments.
The pink city gates and walls.
The busy atmosphere of central Jaipur’s markets and shops.
