Jaipur is the city of mythology and history. It is the pink city fabled by snake charmers, artists, magicians, astrologers, dancers and all kinds of Rajasthani food. Better known for the Jaipur Literature festival, it is also the city of some of the grandest destination weddings. With that, the first name which pops my mind is Fairmont Jaipur. This historic hotel praises the Rajput and the Mughal traditions which intermingle in Jaipur to give rise to hundreds of years of tradition. With grand ballrooms for destination weddings, to a great spa where you can rejuvenate for your weekend charms. This is the ideal staycation if you want to explore history. Here is a list of 10 historic and architecture marvels which are present at the Fairmont Jaipur, awaiting just for you, and getting a part of deeper history as years pass by.

Fairmont Jaipur is the only flagship property of the Fairmont group in India. I have visited their property in Canada and those were built in the most exquisite of locations. In India, the Fairmont is set to give a royal Rajasthani vibe. 

Sheesh Mahal - The Sheesh Mahal was a palace where there were many jewels embedded in the walls. A candle lit would seem thousand fold bright because of the many mirrors it was reflected in. The Fairmont has a similar place in its cigar diwan, which is designed like a beautiful old Mughal room. There are many mirrors and there is a circle in the middle of the room. Only the man talking in the middle of the room can hear a confident echo of his own voice but no one else can hear it. Fairmont has truly considered the importance of history in its design.

Sahaliyon ki badi - The Rajput Sahaliyon ki badi was the gossipping place for women where they would sit together and have conversations about their husbands. This was one of the most magnificent gardens in the Rajput kingdom and it was built for the Queen. The Fairmont has created a replica of this ancient garden at the hotel to make it feel like you are walking into history.

Rajasthani Thali at Zarin - Zarin, a Persian name fuses with the Rajput Thali to provide a culturally rich experience. The Rajasthani Thali at the Fairmont was grand and it was surely bigger than our table. There were over 20 dishes on my plate and all were well presented and curated from the secret chef books of the royal times. Rich flavored food made me feel like I was going back into history and dining with the Maharajas.

Spa treatments based on Horoscope to align Chakras - According to Indian Mythology, everybody has nine chakras which need to be aligned to increase the healing power of the body. The spa at the Fairmont uses this philosophy and combines it in their spa treatments which vary with horoscope. The treatment was unprecedented and it is surely the most different and quirky spa I have ever been to. I felt like personal attention was given to me because my therapist understood my personality and my horoscope and tried to align my chakras accordingly.

400 year old door - The Fairmont (bought it from an auction) auctioned a door which is 400 years old. You are literally walking through 400 years of history when you walk through this ornate and beautifully carved door. I felt like a princess when I walked through this.

Chandelier at the hotel - This chandelier made me feel like I was walking into a palace. The royal feeling took a hold of me as I walked down the stairs. The chandelier has many light bulbs which reflect light in the day. It looks magnificent in the day and it feels very aura cleansing at night. It is a chandelier with magical historical power.

Breakfast buffet - The breakfast buffet is grand and looks just like the huge meals in the movie Jodha Akbar. Nothing short of having various cuisines, the buffet is designed to have one dish from every state of India so that everyone can enjoy the flavor of diversity and different cuisines. Flavors existing through history culminate on their breakfast table.

The grand ballroom - Who does not want to get married in a grand ballroom where the chandeliers are taken right off a grand palace. The black chandeliers combined with the elegant beauty of the blue ballroom created an exciting atmosphere for a wedding. Since Fairmont is a great destination wedding hotel, No fun without some shaadi mode on. The hotel has bookings of various high profile weddings throughout the year. The director of Bahubali got his son married at this hotel as well. Live music, great decor, drinks, lehengas, sarees, and trumpets. This ballroom has seen a lot of fancy weddings.
