Jaipur- A Pedestrian's delight, the extremely well-planned "the pink city of India" is both a Heritage city and a city of Heritages. Incomparable and uncountable monuments, lively and colourful bazaars, top-notch excursions… just a few reasons why Jaipur tops the destinations list of every tourist to India. Jaipur is an extremely well proportioned city, quite unusual among other historic Indian cities, planned to the minutest detail and to the smallest structure. Jaipur has been wisely designed so by the legendary Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II mixing modern thought with ages old building concepts. A great scholar and astronomer, his other contributions include the enormous astronomical observatory Jantar Mantar located in the City Palace Complex. The City Palace itself is a fine example of Rajput-Mughal architecture having priceless collection of miniatures, manuscripts, jewelry, costumes and armory. The huge seven story Chandra Mahal in this complex has Govind Devji temple right at its back followed by the sprawling Jai Niwas gardens, Badal Mahal (Cloud Palace - one of Jaipur's earliest structures), Talkatora lake and Garh Ganesh temple over the hill top forming a linear symmetry to the Tripolia Gate and Chaura Rasta (Broad way) in the main city. This amazing sense of symmetry further extends to the Ram Niwas gardens and the beautiful Albert Hall right up to the airport. The picturesque Moti Doongri Castle, Birla temple, Jawahar Kala Kendra, Museum of Indology are at short diversions from this main street. The majestic Nahargarh fort imposingly looks over the entire city from the hills at the back of the palace. Back in the City Palace compound, the Hawa Mahal (Palace of Winds) is undoubtedly the most familiar monument associated with Jaipur.
