The Capital city of Rajasthan has its own charm. Home to some of the amazing forts in India, Jaipur offers a good combination of attractions as well as excursions. Myriad opportunities for shopping and admiring royal architecture add a great deal of indulgence while visiting Jaipur. If that’s not enough, a dash of delectable food being offered at almost every corner makes an ideal garnish for the sumptuously flavored plate of Jaipur. Being a famous destination, accommodation options here range from low budget hostels to premium high-end hotels like Hilton in Jaipur.
I have been to Jaipur many times due to some relatives staying there. In this blog post, I will lay a crisp guideline for you. It might help you plan for Jaipur well.
Forts & Palaces in Jaipur
The three main forts in Jaipur are Amer (Amber), Jaigarh and Nahargarh Fort. All these are true epitomes of the royal past of Jaipur. Jaigarh Fort is located in the vicinity of Amer Fort, while Nahargarh is a short drive away. Apart from the striking architecture and depiction of Royalty, Jaigarh Fort is also home to the largest cannon in the world, Jaivana. The Cannon is a staggering 20.2 feet long and as myth would go; it had the capacity to shoot the cannon ball up to 35 KMs. However, it has not been proved scientifically. It is believed that a small pond was formed at Chaksu as a result of the cannonball impact.
