Jantar-Mantar @ Jaipur :

his is one of the Largest & best preserved Observationary out of the five in India. It’s built by Sawai Jai Singh due to his hobby in the field of Astrology & Numerology. I would strongly suggest for planning to explore Jantar Mantar with a Guide.

The main part is the Rajasthani food served in the Dinner. Buffet is served on one side & there is a place next to it where food is served to you sitting down on the floor. We preferred the second option & enjoyed the food in traditional style. A lot of things are served in a specific order & you can ask for anything anytime, but most of the times Dhani-people around you will ask to have something. Service is really amazing. Best known Rajasthani food Dal-Bhati-Churma is also served, but for adventurous traveler, willing to experiment, there is a lot of variety available. It includes Dal Pachhmelri, Kadi Besanro , Makki/Bajara Roti, gatta, Bura, Butter, Ghee, Chhachh, Lassi, Papad, Khichadi etc & they call all these items in different way.

We enjoyed a lot & the time spent here was the best time during Jaipur trip.

AMER PALACE:

Raja Man Singh built Amer Palace in 16th Century. Rajputs made use fo Amber Fort from 16th Century up to the foundation of Jaipur in 1727 both for defense purpose as well as the residential purposes.

Within its mighty walls, you will find magnificent places made from marble & precious stones, richly decorated with intricate stonemason works and paintings, which represented the royal splendor and luxury. The fort’s first courtyard is a wide expanse, dominated by two buldings- the pillared red sandstone Diwan-e-Aam(The Hall for Public Audience) and the intricately painted double-storeyed Gate. Beyond these lies a series of pillared corridors, centering around a typical Mughal Garden(Charbagh), bounded on one side by Sukh Niwas and on the other by Jas Mandir, a lovely piece of architecture: delicate mirror work, paint & carving (especially the exquisitely carved jaalis). There is one temple inside the fort & we didn’t saw it from inside due a long queue of tourists.
