Jaipur – probably the most colourful locus in the famous Golden Triangle circuit. A city that narrates a poetic saga of endurance, color, heritage, valor, tradition, artistry and culture.
The city’s colourful and anarchic streets flood with a potent blend of old and new. Amidst all these mayhem, the radiance of Jaipur’s regal past shows footprints in every corner of the ancient modern city.
In addition to the regular (yet, spellbound) tourist attractions like Amber Fort, Hawamahal, City Palace, Jantar Mantar etc. the soul of Jaipur also lies within its rich culture of food, jewelry, monuments, attires, handicrafts, arts and more.
