Amber Fort

Amber is located at a distance of 11 km from Jaipur and was the highlight of the old clan Kachhwaha of amber, which used to be the capital until it was moved to Jaipur. The construction of the Amber Fort began in the year 1592 and was started by Man Singh I, but it was finished by his descendant Jai Singh I. Outside the fort is not in the minors as its interiors. The light outside is very imposing and rugged while the interior is a consolation and heat inside, which is influenced by Hindu and Muslim model ornamental. On the walls are paintings depicting various hunting scenes, and there are a lot of work on the walls, which are covered cutting complex mosaic and work mirror minute made the halls look very majestic and imperial. The fort was built with white marble and red sandstone and looking more attractive because of the lake Maota in the foreground. The fort itself is a beautiful sight to see, but as one looks on the fort with its clear reflection on the lake in front, one can not help but wonder if it's a dream or a beautiful illusion. Amber Fort also called Amer Fort is a must-see if you visit Rajasthan. Tourists to this strong can approach the fort by road or take a tour of an elephant, but it is quite slow, however, are great fun. If you are in Rajasthan, do not miss the opportunity to travel to Amer Fort, one of the major strengths of the city and one of the main attractions of Jaipur.
City Palace

The city of Jaipur is known for its many palaces and forts, which are a major attraction for tourists in Rajasthan. One of the important landmarks of "pink city of " is the complex of palaces of the city. The city palace was built by Maharaja Jai Singh II of Kachhwaha clan of Rajputs, but a lot of changes and additions were made to the original structure by his successors.The architecture of the palace city is a synthesis of models of Rajasthani and Mughal. The complex structures of many, of course, gardens and buildings. There are many small palaces and magnificent halls in the complex, such as the Chandra Mahal, Mubarak Mahal and Badal Mahal. There is also a famous temple called the Shri Govind Temple and a museum within, called the Palace Museum city.
Hawa Mahal

The Hawa Mahal, which touches the wall of famous city palace was built in 1799 by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh and has now become the main landmarks of Jaipur. The palace is shaped like a pyramid and is building five-told, with the number of small windows and screens, with arched roofs. As one looks at this building, one realizes that the back of the building is comparatively very flat and lacks a lot of adornment. It is rather surprising in contrast, since in the division before it is complex and much attention has been paid the same meticulous detail yet is behind a mass of pillars and passages. Since the Hawa Mahal was built at a time when women of the royal families had to observe strict purdah, many believe that the Hawa Mahal was built, just so the ladies could watch the parades and the various activities taking place on the streets . This explains why Hawa Mahal has such tiny windows and many balconies protected. The royal ladies could look below to show people and enjoy a sense of freedom. The Hawa Mahal is a great example of the Rajputana architecture, which was strongly influenced by model Mughal architecture. This particular model of the building that we observe in Hawa Mahal, uses the best features of Mughal architecture with other configurations that could better adapt to the inhospitable weather conditions of Rajasthan.
Kanak Valley

Among such natural beauty is the temple complex that is three centuries. In the complex is the temple dedicated to deoji and Natawarji by Govind, and also a garden, called the Kanak Bagh. The side of the river valley east of Dharbawati, which earlier passed through the city of Jaipur but has now become more or less a lake Mansagar. The valley has received there are about 280 years appointed by the governor and the founder of Jaipur, Sawai Jai Singh. Strangely, the Kanak Valley prompted the governor to think of Vrindavan, where Lord Krishna spent his childhood, which is why an idol of Shri Govind Deoji (an incarnation of Lord Krishna) was installed here. Even now the place has not lost its meaning and is considered a sacred place, which is why during the many festivals such as Gangaur and Teej, the procession ahead of amber are stopped here to pay respect to the Lord . When you visit this place now, we are shocked to hear that for years this place has been completely ignored by everyone and was rapidly crumbling. Monitors, splitting complex, and the vaults chhatris have seemed to fall apart. If this were not bad enough, even the vegetation and natural environment of the place deteriorating rapidly. Fortunately, before it was too late, restoration work started on this site and other damage was prevented.
Lekshmi Narayan Temple

The Laxmi Narayan is located in the south of Jaipur, and was built by the Birla family, which is an important industrial family in India. This is why the temple is also called Birla Mandir . It is situated quite near the stronghold of Moti Doongri, which was converted into a small palace by Ram Singh II and Gayatri Devi. Bearing in mind the secular nature of the country, the temple has three domes, which represent different approaches to religion. It is a beautiful white marble temple, which seems to glow at night. The Birla Mandir in Jaipur attracts many tourists and devotees every year. The temple is very squeezed during festivals while Hindus come from all parts of the state and the country to pay respect to his lord. The next time you have a holiday, come to Jaipur and visit the Birla Mandir, dedicated to Lord Vishnu and Goddess Laxmi.

The name the Jantar Mantar comes from Sanskrit 's Yantra mantra of of the instruments and the meaning of the formulas. Sawai Jai Singh II was commissioned by Emperor Shah Mohamed, to make corrections in the astronomical tables and to confirm the data already available in the planetary positions. Sawai Jai Singh II took seven years to finish the task. He built the first stone observatory in Delhi in 1724. The Jaipur observatory was built in 1728. There is really a fascinating story regarding the construction of the observatory. According to history, Sawai Jai Singh II sent his envoys to various parts of the world. The emissaries were returned with manuals and astronomical tables besides tons of data on progress in the fields of astronomy. The rent of the 's tables were one of these manuals, and impressed by him, Sawai Jai sings II called for the observatory to be built according to data available here. Amazing, after it was built Jantar Mantar, the observatory was discovered that was more precise than the table itself.

The highlight of the trip on the strength of Jaigarh is definitely the Jaivana, which is the world the 's largest canyon in the wheels. Built in Jaigarh the 's smelter in the year 1720. Many say that the gun was used only once and the ball fell alguÌ n 35Kms away in a village. But that 's quite doubtful, since a closer inspection revealed the gun was really turned on at least a couple of times. The fortress has a lot of wide water channels, which were part of a rainwater harvest system. There are 3 underground tanks at the fortress, the largest of which could store 60.00.000 gallons of water. An interesting story about this tank is that, many believed that contained the hidden treasure but unfortunately the Indian government wanted him and did not find anything at all.
