After breakfast proceed for city of Jaipur – visiting Amer Fort located at 11 kilometres from Jaipur and was the old fort of the Kachhwaha clan of Amber, which used to be the capital, till it was moved to Jaipur. The fort is built with white marble and red sandstone and looks even more attractive because of the Maota Lake in the foreground. The fort is a beautiful sight to behold but as one looks on the fort with its clear reflection on the lake in the front; one cannot help but wonder if it is a dream or a beautiful illusion. An elephant [Subject to availability/alternatively by jeep] – Not Included in the Quote will spare you the trouble of climbing up to the fortress. Once on top, stroll through the sprawling complex of courtyards and halls.
Later visit the City Palace, which is an overwhelming complex of exquisite palaces, gardens and courtyards, decorative art and carved doorways. The palace museum houses collections of rare manuscripts, armoury, costumes, carpets and miniature paintings. Walk to the adjacent Jantar Mantar or Astronomical Observatory made by the Maharaja of Jaipur, built in 1726 and is one of the five such astronomical wonders built by Sawai Jai Singh and makes accurate predictions even to this day.
Jaipur is a shopper’s paradise. Most of the bazaars are in old city with wide range of things to buy, from jewellry (precious and semi-precious stones) to textiles to handicrafts and antique. No doubt for an avid shopper “Jaipur” is the choicest of the cities.
Later visit the Chokhi Dhani Village for Dinner (On Direct Payment) – Chokhi Dhani Village has been the mirror of Rajasthani culture since 1989. Started as part of ambience for a restaurant, over the years it has evolved as a tasteful and authentic symbol of ethnic village life of this most colorful state in the country. Today, the name of Chokhi Dhani is synonymous with Rajasthani culture throughout the country. A village fair is created every evening as an ongoing celebration of the rich & vibrant cultural heritage of Rajasthan. Live dance and music performance all through the evening is one of the major attractions at Chokhi Dhani Village.
