A fun fact: Did you know that it took around 4 years to build Jaipur and its construction was started in the year 1726?
I have another question for you. Do you know that it’s just 4 hours away from the National Capital City?
Isn’t it surprising that a place that preserves royal heritage in its inner depths is not visited by you yet?
All it would take is packing two sets of clothing and some cash, of course, as Jaipur can be seen widely and in depth within a span of four days. If you read this blog in the summer months, you would need to keep your excitement intact till the month of November as that is the best time to visit Jaipur.
You sure do not want to sweat out all your travel instinct by going there during summers as you will get burnt down. No! I am not kidding at all.
The winter season will give you the authentic essence of the place so that you can call it ‘The Pink City’ with all your belief.
A suggestion before we start our blog travel…
If you want to plan an itinerary, well, you are off to a great start. However, my suggestion is you reach there when you have ample of time on your hands and go around without a proper plan. The sole reason being, you’ll get to view the city in its purest form.
The Raja who found this city, Jai Singh II (courtesy: Wikipedia), did not plan on finding it, you know! Why should you?
Perhaps, how much will you know by just following the rules on your itinerary?
You sure have Google maps to help you out whenever the need be, so, don’t be afraid to let go!
• Amer Fort / Amber Fort
Whichever name you want to call it, the fort stands correctly on its name. Amer means ‘One who has a long and prosperous life’. This fort has been standing on since 1592. Now you can count the number of years till 2019. That’s a lot of time.
There are people who go around the fort in cars, but I intended on doing it on foot. On every milestone that you cross, you get to see a huge and magnificently built door. I suggest you wear your shoes as there is a lot of room to cover.
After walking for a few miles, you view this green and picturesque pond nestled in the middle of the fort.
Walking further, you will come across various spots where you can use the ‘Panorama’ option in your smart phones just as I did.
