Step into the myriad maze of history at Amer Fort

One of the first things to do in Jaipur for most travelers is to set off on an exploratory journey into history along the cobbled pathways at the historic Amer Fort. The fort encloses within its fold a palace where the King, Queen, and his retinue stayed as well as a mini town. As you walk into the ramparts of Amer Fort, you step into a fascinating world that is sure to give your imagination wings. The Palace inside the Amer Fort is designed on four levels and includes Diwan-i-Aam or the hall where the King used to listen to the issues and complaints of the common people, the Diwan-i-Khas which was a hall where the privileged could get a private audience with the King, the Sheesh Mahal or Palace of Mirrors where the King and Queen could grab some romantic moments, and Sukh Niwas where the royalty could spend time in the cool environs of rooms away from the sweltering heat owing to an ingenious system that can be called as the precursor of air-conditioning. Indeed the Amer Fort is one of the best places to visit in Jaipur.

An intricate and exquisite façade apparently designed and given shape lovingly, the Hawa Mahal soars to the sky from the side of a busy street where vehicles and pedestrians jostle with each other. The Hawa Mahal is an extension of a Palace and was meant to give an opportunity to the womenfolk of the Royal family to watch the goings on in the street discreetly through latticed windows that also served as a conduit for fresh and cool air. The façade is a pleasing structure of octagonal bays with 953 niches with beautifully carved Jharokhas or balconies. As you crane your neck upwards to get a full view of the Hawa Mahal, you can almost feel the din of the traffic slowly fading away to be replaced by the mellifluous sounds of musical instruments and the rhythmic dance moves of performers as you are transported back in time.

That is Jal Mahal a beautiful sight to behold and one of the most pleasing things to do in Jaipur. One can only view the beautiful Jal Mahal or Water Palace from the shore. Though the spectacle of the Jal Mahal is grand what is more intriguing is the fact that the structure is five-storied and four storeys lie submerged in the water, a truly unique feat of engineering as the water does not flow into the palace which has remained strong for over 250 years.

The Pink city comes alive with all its old world charm in the lanes and by-lanes of the walled city. Any traveler worth their salt would not even think of not doing one of the most enjoyable things to do in Jaipur, shopping! Bapu Bazaar nestled in the walled city is a paradise for shopping. Bapu Bazaar has everything from dresses with typically Rajasthani motifs and patterns, to bedsheets and pillow covers, traditional Rajasthani footwear which includes the famous Rajasthani Mojris. Shopping in Jaipur is indeed an indulgence for one’s material impulses.

Pamper the foodie in you with the tempting repertoire of Rajasthani Cuisine at Lakshmi Mishtan Bhandar and Rawat Mishtan Bhandar

15 Things to do in Jaipur, Rajasthan, India

The Rajasthani cuisine is unique and brings alive the aromas and flavors of the desert. Authentic Rajasthani food holds the promise of a blissful experience with its subtle as well as covert flavors. If you are in Rajasthan and do not taste the richness of its cuisine, it is definitely a case of mission unaccomplished! There are many eateries in and around Jaipur that will cater to your adventurous palate but one of the things to do in Jaipur that we strongly recommend is eating at either Lakshmi Misthan Bhandar or Rawat Mishtan Bhandar or both. Savour the succulent Kachoris from Rawat Misthan Bhandar, which are Indian snacks popular across the country. Ghewar, a disc-shaped sweet cake soaked in sugar syrup is one of the specialties of Jaipur and is irresistible. One can also indulge in a multi-course meal at Lakshmi Mishtan Bhandar which is sure to leave you asking for more. A food crawl in the lanes of Jaipur is one of the most satiating activities in Jaipur.

Peep through the window of history at Albert Hall Museum

15 Things to do in Jaipur

Museums are windows to history, culture, arts, science, and so much more. They bring alive stories and information in vivid detail. The Albert Hall Museum is the State Museum of Rajasthan, it showcases the art of Jaipur in the form of carpets, sculptures in stone, ivory, and marble as well as paintings. The building itself is impressive and a wonderful example of Indo-Saracenic architecture. On earlier visits, we had skipped this attraction but having seen it in many Jaipur photos, we wanted to visit the place and were really glad that we did not give it a miss. Make sure to visit the Albert Hall Museum as it may not feature in your typical Jaipur Package.

Be swept away by the magic of Rajasthani Folk Dance

15 Things to do in Jaipur

The folk dances and songs of Rajasthan are known for their vibrancy and rhythm, they bring alive in spectacular fashion tales of war and valor, ballads of love, devotion to Gods and Goddesses. There are various Dance forms that bring alive the captivating magic of Rajasthan. One of the most popular and famous is a dance called Ghoomar in which women wearing billowing and colorful skirts twirl in mesmerizing fashion to the music. The grace of the women, the swirling dresses, and the hypnotic music are enough to cast a spell. The folk dances of Rajasthan can be enjoyed at various places in Jaipur including Amer Fort. Experiencing the colorful and visual treat of Rajasthani folk dance is one of the top things to do in Jaipur. A dance performance, however, may not be something that you will easily find in your typical Jaipur City Guide, however, a little bit of research and inquiry will pay rich dividends.

These are some of the activities and things to do in Jaipur, but this in no way is an exhaustive list. The possibilities are endless when you are in Jaipur, Rajasthan. One needs to open up all the senses to really savor each moment to the full and take back sweet memories.

It was soon time for us to leave Jaipur and Rajasthan and head southwards, from the deserts to the lush green hills of Ooty for our next adventure which was awaiting us at Sterling Resorts.

Have you visited Jaipur? If not you should and if possible stay in one of those heritage and palatial Jaipur hotels. Do share with us your experiences at the Pink city.

    India isn’t on my list of places to visit but if we did go we would want to see all the historical buildings. Go and see the cultural and how the people live and work and play.

    This is surely the most Instagrammable part of India?! So pretty! If I ever get to India, this is top of my list. Just stunning.

    Jaipur looks like it’s absolutely full of colour and heritage! Jal Mahal looks incredible, as if it’s lightly floating on the lake. I’ve only ever visited Mysore but I’m hoping to travel and see the Golden Triangle (at a minimum) one day!

  8. Sarah Bailey Reply

    What some absolutely beautiful and exciting things to do I am loving the look of the underground tunnel to Jaigarh Fort that just looks really intriguing to me.

  9. Jeanette Reply

    There are so many different things to do there and I did not realize. I have never even thought about going here but with all of these interesting things to do there I definitely think I need to go.

  10. Jenn Reply

    I’ve heard very little about Jaipur so am really glad I came across your post! This looks like an amazing place to visit and I’d definitely love snapping some shots of Hawa Mahal and tasting all the food there. Thanks for a great post!

  11. Emily Reply

    Wow, the architecture and history there is amazing! I love learning about new place that I have never been to. Finding out about the people and traditions really makes me antsy to prioritize more traveling!

  12. Julee Reply

    Can we just pause and admire the architecture for a moment?! Wow! and the colors…so subtle yet vibrant. What a gorgeous place to take in!

  13. Anosa Reply

    Though all of these things look like awesome things to include in one’s itinerary i think Hawa mawah is my absolute favourite

  14. Cheryl Reply

    The architecture looks divine! And I would love to take in a Bollywood flick and eat my way through the city.

  15. Aldrick Agpaoa Reply

    What interests me in Jaipur is the Rawa Mahal. I am becoming a lover of intricate architecture and Rawa Mahal sums up (for me) what Jaipur is, aside from being pink. *wink* There are a lot of similarities with Indian and Filipino culture that I love, that’s maybe because India is close to my heart. P.S.: I want to learn the Rajasthani Folk Dance, too!

  16. Liz Mays Reply

    It would be so amazing to see the Hawa Mahal in person. I’m really impressed with that architecture! I never get to see anything like that here.

  17. Tanya Korteling Reply

    There sounds to be so many great things to see here, if we return to India which hopefully we will in a couple of years I’d love to go. I’m quite a foodie soo probably Lakshmi Mishtan Bhandar and Rawat Mishtan Bhandar would be top of my list 🙂

  18. Joanna Reply

    I love that you recommending going to see a movie at the Raj Mandir. I have actually went there when I visited Jaipur! It was such a great local experience. Before the movie I drank a cup of sweet lassi at one of the shops nearby, which was one of the best I have ever had in India.

  19. Pinay Mommy Online Reply

    India is one of the places listed on my travel list. Jaipur Rajasthan looks like an awesome place to visit, I’d certainly go to the Bapu Bazaar or the Albert Hall Museum first though.

  20. Iuliana Marchian Reply

    The architecture of Jaipur is so elegant and exquisite. Hawa Mahal is a red jewel of intricate details and I can feel the intimate atmosphere of the spaces where women stayed there. Is it possible to go inside? What is it happening there now?

  21. Noel Reply

    Aside from nature, architectural models from old eras always fascinate me. And I’m equally intrigued by that Pink City Palace whenever I’d catch a photo from the internets.

  22. Dogvills Reply

    The architecture is fantastic! I just love the facade of these buildings. If it looks that beautiful outside, I can just imagine the pomp and splendor or the interior. Thanks for sharing the lovely photos!

  23. Debra Hawkins Reply

    Wow! These photos are absolutely stunning! I have always wanted to go here. The architecture is just gorgeous!

  24. Jaime Nicole Reply

    I would LOVE to visit Jaipur one day. Your photos are gorgeous – the architecture is stunning and the food looks AMAZING!

  25. neha Reply

    Jaipur has so much to offer. We missed some like Birla Mandir and the Albert Hall Museum on our last trip. But we would definitely like to cover them on the next one. The place is just so colorful and vibrant. I totally love the Rajasthani culture

  26. Ambuj Saxena Reply

    Very well written post. I have been to jaipur and blogged about it so I know how much value you’ve added here. I think babu bazaar is one place I should have covered and bought something good for my 5 year old niece.

  27. Ozzy Reply

    Have seen most of these places in Jaipur, but every time I see or read a post on the Pink City, I come across a new POV. Being a history buff I kind of missed out on the traditional dances and the bazaars. Did enjoy Rajasthani cuisine though, its so light but filling. Nahargarh Fort and City Palace are personal favourites in Jaipur hands down. Great pictures though. I could never get a shot without the crowd in it 🙂

  28. Katie Reply

    You captured Jaipur so well in your photos! They’re so beautiful! I’d definitely like to visit one day to see all these sights and I can definitely see myself doing some shopping at the Bapu Bazaar for sure!

  29. Paige Wunder Reply

    Jaipur is at the top of my India list. The Pink City just has so many amazing things to see! Thank you for introducing me to a few new ones to add to my list though! I would love to see a Bollywood Flick in Vintage Style! I love the idea of doing something so classic, like going to the movies, but doing it in a special way! I’ll definitely check that out!

  30. Laura Nalin Reply

    These photos are gorgeous — I can’t get over the fact this place exists. I am pretty sure the view from the Nahargarh Fort (door) is my dream entrance to a home someday….when I become a millionaire, that is! 😛 Anyway, great post as always!

  31. Izzy Reply

    I got to see a free Rajasthani dance show in Udaipur but we never made it to Jaipur! I feel like Rajasthan absolutely warrants more time to explore. The Hawa Mahal is breathtaking and I can already picture all these beady eyes peering through those windows long ago.

  32. Candy Reply

    I was immediately drawn to the Hawa Mahal. Then when I read the story behind the design I was amazed. I can just picture women secretly looking to the streets without anyone really noticing them. It’s the perfect architecture for spys 🙂

  33. Kavey Favelle | Kavey Eats Reply

    Excellent post on the attractions of Jaipur. It’s been so many years since I visited that your photos really have me longing to go back and enjoy photographing them again myself! My mum visited family there recently and bought me some great woodblock prints for me to use in my pottery. I also associate the city with beautiful throws/ blankets.

  34. Carmen Baguio Reply

    Thank you for sharing such beautiful breathtaking scenic photos. It is absolutely amazing. We would love to add this to our bucket list of travels. You laid out an intriguing invitation to visit. Now to determine how much time to set aside to take in the beautiful sites.

    Aaaaaaah, looking at your photos and hearing y0ur story, it took me right back to when we visited Jaipur. What a gorgeous city with stunning architecture, we loved wandering around capturing the same images you have. Thank you for reminding me of our wonderful trip! #feetdotravel

  36. Shona Reply

    I’m definitely pinning this to use when I get to Jaipur. What a fantastic amount of information. Your photos are stunning and make me want to visit now!

  37. Anna Johnston Reply

    The architecture is so varied and interesting. I love the Hawa Mahal and the reason it was built, I can just see all those beautifully dressed women peeping through the lattice work.

  38. LaiAriel R. Samangka Reply

    Wow, I never knew that Jaipur has this kind of amazing view. The buildings intricate design are really beyond compare and one of a kind. I love how you were able to showcase the interesting story behind all these stunning places. Another place in India that I should visit. You have been feeding me a great deal of amazing places in India. Thank you so much for sharing this with us.

    I don’t know much about India and I so enjoy following your travels and learning about this part of the world. The country has so much history and beauty and that always come through in your posts.

    I really do not know much about India and therefore had never really considered it in my travels. You post has certainly peaked my interest. The intricacies of the architecture are amazing. Thanks.

  41. Sreeram Reply

    Absolutely stunning images of the pink city. Their cuisine is distinct among many other things. Would love to visit Jaipur on my next trip to India.

  42. Anne Reply

    Ooh wow I had no idea there was so much to see and do there. I thought it would be a place you could see in a day but am now changing my estimations. Definitely need to book a trip to this part of India

  43. Helene D'Souza Reply

    I was invited to Jaipur a month ago for a few days. Even in a few days you can’t do everything, Jaipur and it’s surroundings has really a lot to offer. In fact, we had to skip a few things and focused more on other lesser known sights, as massive domestic tourist crowds are not uncommon in more popular sights.

  44. Debbzie Leksono Reply

    My eyes are definitely pampered here by those beautiful pictures. I really love how vibrant India is! I haven’t got the chance to explore it myself though. But if I had I would definitely visiting the beautiful Pink City. Curious about their cuisine too! 😀

  45. Adrenaline Romance Reply

    India is one of the countries that is in our should-visit bucketlist. It is near the Philippines, and as long as we finance this right, we can definitely have a trip there next year. India is so full of culture and colors. If opportunities permit, we may be able to continue north and trek the lower Himalayas.

  46. Aisha Reply

    Arggggg! I almost visited India last year but ended up going to Sri Lanka instead. These photos make me want to go even more. I think I would be in a photographers heaven!

  47. Suruchi Reply

    That is an amazing post on Jaipur. We have been to Jaipur so many times but still never made to the Jaigarh Fort. The fort looks really impressive and that tunnel too. We loved watching the sunset from these palaces and the spell sunrays cast on the palace stone in the evening. Amazing!!

  48. Corinne Reply

    We did not have enough time to put Jaipur on our itinerary when we went to Rajasthan. The palace and fortress looks amazing. I’ll have to try and get there someday.

  49. Kevin del Prado Reply

    Wow! The color is very vibrant just like how rich their culture is. Haven’t heard of this place before but I do really think it’s a must visit place in India.

  50. Rosemary Reply

    Wow, the stunning shot of the Jal Mahal captured my attention right away. I have to admit I don’t know much about India, the country, and this article was quite fascinating. I’m not sure when I’ll visit, but the Pink City will be on that list. Thanks for the historical and cultural overview 🙂

  51. Tami Reply

    Hawa Mahal is absolutely beautiful! I am amazed at the details and embellishments that have been painstakingly added to these buildings! Actually all of your photos are wonderful examples of all that there is to do in Jaipur — so much amazing!

  52. Kate Reply

    I have to save this post! I would love to visit Bapu Bazaar! It looks so colorful and full of life. Hawa Mahal’s photo is entrancing with all of the windows. I’m sure it’s even more impressive in person!

  53. Megan Jerrard Reply

    So many incredible things to do in Jaipur – I would love to visit Amer Fort and Hawa Mahal
    The architecture is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. And wow, the Jal Mahal really does look quite enchanting! I’m going to have to visit your whole list because Nahargarh Fort is an equally as beautiful building – I don’t think I can choose a favorite here! Rajasthani Folk Dance and Cuisine would be a great way to mix in something different to the historic monuments each day. So much to do and explore in Jaipur!!

  54. Claudia Reply

    Well, your colorful photos and descriptions of what to see and do in Jaipur, Rajasthan certainly entice me to plan a trip. I’ve not yet had the pleasure of visiting India, and obviously I’m missing out on so much! That Bapu Bazaar is a shoppers dream, and the architecture of the old fort is so impressive. I have to start planning my Indian adventures.

  55. Miranda Reply

    The underground passage sounds so cool and mysterious! That would be a must do for my list. I’d love to learn a little more history behind it

  56. Jing Reply

    Wow! Such richness in color and texture. I’ve only been to Mumbai and would absolutely want to come back for more of India. Jaipur is definitely on the top of the list. I’m also collecting interesting door shots and the one you’ve posted here makes me want to come there all the more.

  57. Vicky and Buddy Reply

    I can’t wait to visit India! The architecture alone is breathtaking. I’ve always been fascinated by how detailed and intricate it is. I’m sure I could spend hours wandering around the Hawa Mahal and taking photos.

    Fantastic post as always, so much to see and do in Jaipur! I love the look of the Hawa Mahal, perhaps it was the inspiration for the Ministry of Magic building in the Harry Potter movies?

  63. Janine Thomas Reply

    I loved visiting Rajasthan a few years ago. I spent 10 days there, but just scratched the surface. This post brought back happy memories . Thank you!

  64. Indrani Reply

    Actually there can be many more but then these 15 are definitely the must do things.
    I have indulged in some of them but am craving for some more visits to make up for the ones not done.

  65. Tania Mukherjee Reply

    I am calculating how many number of days I will require to finish your list! Each single place, rather, experience, is unique. My special interest lies with Hawa Mahal and its hypnotic architecture.
