Where stories begin
Discover the remarkable Pink City of Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan and witness its breath-taking forts and majestic palaces; from the Amber fort to the City Palace and the Palace of the Winds (Hawa Mahal).
Take in the sights and sounds of this historic and cultural city as you navigate through its labyrinth of bazaars and grand palaces. Gaze at the crowning glory of this remarkable city, the intricately detailed facade of the renowned Palace of the Winds, with its 600 screened windows and balconies.
A point of India’s Golden Triangle, Jaipur also boasts the City Palace complex, the medieval Jantar Mantar astronomical observatory and the ancient capital of the Rajput Empire – Amber and its 16th-century hill-top fort. Perhaps visit by elephant back, by golf cart or by jeep. Whichever mode of transport you pick brings the reward not only of the chance to explore the Moghul fortress, but to take in the panoramic views of the Rajasthani plains below. And even here, the mighty structure proudly displays its walls of dusky pink.
