With its large ramparts and series of gates and cobbled paths, the fort overlooks Maota Lake. The aesthetic ambiance of the palace is seen within its walls. Constructed of red sandstone and marble, the attractive and opulent palace is laid out on four levels, each with a courtyard.
Later we will visit Jal Mahal Palace, located in the middle of Man Sagar Lake. A gentle splashing of oars on the clear lake waters takes you to Jal Mahal.

Across the lake, you can view the Aravalli hills, dotted with temples and ancient forts, and on the other side, see the bustling Jaipur.
Next, visit Hawa Mahal (Palace of Winds), named so because it was essentially a high screen wall built so the women of the royal household could observe street festivities while unseen from the outside. Constructed of red and pink sandstone, the palace sits on the edge of the City Palace, and extends to the zenana, or women’s chambers. Finally, see the observatory of Jantar Mantar, built by the renowned astronomer Maharaja Jai Singh. After the tour is over you will be taken back to Delhi and arrive to your hotel around midnight.
