Road Trip To The ‘Pink City’ of India, Jaipur






One must travel to the pink city Jaipur in the historical state Rajasthan to see India’s true majestic past and to experience life of the past kings and rulers. Jaipur is really a very magnificent city with its splendid palaces, which till date are well preserved, its vibrant markets and feel of the city being a remarkable tourist destination.

I went to Jaipur from Chandigarh in Feb 2011 with my friends by car and found it a very colorful city. Moreover, the highway from Delhi to Jaipur is also fabulous.It took approximately nine to ten hours to reach Jaipur.Our trip was an unplanned one as made in hurry.We reached Jaipur by 6pm and went to our first destination that was ‘Chokhi Dhani’. Its a place where you will find a different theme with Rajasthani village ambience for each day, a festive celebration everytime in a different manner with a purview of different Rajasthani village culture in fun, entertainment, thrill, shopping, Rajasthani diet, Rajasthani Kalbeliya dance or Ghoomer or other folk dance and much more to look,to feel…to taste…to experience.

The next morning we went to the famous Birla Temple. After that our next destination was Amer Fort. Amer fort is a beautiful and must visit destination. On the way was Hawa Mahal where we checked in as it is right on the main road. Our next destination on the same day was Jal Mahal which is located in the middle of Man Sagar Lake in Jaipur City.The palace has got an eye popping makeover.The next day we rushed to Ajmer and visited the famous ‘Ajmer Sharif ‘. After that we went to Pushkar to visit the one and only temple of Lord Brahma and the Pushkar Lake with 52 ghats in a sequence. Our last destination was the local market of Jaipur,MI Road, and our trip came to an end with a little bit of shopping.It was the most memorable trip I’ve ever had and would love to visit again given a chance.
