You will be picked up at your hotel in Jaipur at 08:00 am by your chauffeur and then visit Amber Fort, the former capital of the royal Jaipurs. Be moved by the dramatic Rajput grandeur of this hilltop fortress-palace located 11 km north of Jaipur. Set on the dry wrinkled Aravali Hills, and surrounded by fortified battlements, the palace straddles two sepia-hued tundra hills overlooking Maota Lake, and its sprawling crenelated walls lattice the surrounding hills.
Your guide will elaborate on the history of this architectural masterpiece with its mirror-studded alcoves, dazzling mosaics and water-cooled swings that delight today’s visitors as they did their former royal residents. After the fort proceed to the Hawa Mahal, or called Palace of the Winds. It is a five-storied structure of pink sandstone with semi-octagonal and delicately honeycombed windows overlooking the main street of the old city. It was built in 1799 for the veiled royal women to peer down unseen by the world through its 593 stone screens.
Later in the afternoon, go on a tour of the City Palace and Solar Observatory. The City Palace in the heart of the old city is a blend of Rajasthani and Mughal architecture. The palace lies in the heart of the city and occupies the whole central grid. The fortified wall has seven gates and was built for protection from invading armies and animals that lived in jungles, which surrounded the wall that time. Next, visit the Solar Observatory - an astronomical treasure house with solar device that gives accurate predictions till date.
When the tour ends, you will be transferred back to your hotel.
