Day 1

Jaipur capital of Rajasthan also famously called as Pink City of India is known for its heritage sites and forts. Last year i made a backpacking solo trip to Jaipur and explored the city heritage, forts and savored amazing street food. Here I am listing the places i visited in Jaipur in 2 days.

I stayed in Zostel as it is affordable and centre to all tourist attractions . I prefer hostels as you get to meet other travellers, mingle with him or stay aloof as per your preference, it is a best youth hostel.

I started off my day with cold Kulhad lassi nearby to the zostel , these glasses are made of mud and give the earthy flavors to the sweet lassi. Dont forget to ask for extra malai on top of it thats the icing on the cake.

Hawa Mahal was the next immediate stop near to the hostel. Hawa mahal is right in the main road side and it's has the jhakoras/small windows which is a visual treat to watch. I took a ticket for it and headed inside the mahal, the mahal is built out of red and pink sandstone by Maharaja Pratap Singh. The inner side of Mahal is a hollow palace but the USP is the Outer roadside view of it.

Entry fee: Rs. 50

Timings : 9 am to 5 pm

Maharani Market displays the handicrafts of Jaipur be it clothes, hand made toys , wood handicrafts, chaadar, mouth freshners. Once entered you can exit only after visiting all shops. I wasnt the one to shop so just went throught the place and felt it over priced.

A 10 mins tanga ride from hawa mahal leads to Jal mahal. This mahal is half way submerged in water and top 3 floors are only visible. This was a evening stroll place where many people strolled, played , sat and enjoyed the sunset. This water palace is in middle of the Man Sagar lake and a perfect evening visit place.
