Morning, you shall be picked-up from your respective hotel and driven to Jaipur. Upon arrival in Jaipur, check-into your hotel of stay.
Afternoon, proceed with tour of Jaipur city visiting The City Palace Museum - the former Royal residence, part of it converted into a museum. A small portion is still used by the Royal family of Jaipur. One of the major attractions in the museum is the portion known as Armoury Museum housing an impressive array of weaponry-pistols, blunderbusses, flintlocks, swords, rifles and daggers. The royal families of Jaipur once used most of these weapons. Drive past Hawa Mahal - most famous landmark of Jaipur is not actually a palace but a series of sandstone screens. This pink structure was constructed so that the ladies of the palace could watch the royal processions without being seen by any outsider. Visit the Observatory. This largest stone observatory in the world built by Sawai Jai Singh, the founder of five observatories in India including this one, was a great admirer of developments in science and technology.
Later stroll in the local market and overnight stay is at the hotel.
After breakfast, proceed for the visit to Amber Fort - One of the finest examples of Rajput architecture, it was the ancient capital of Jaipur. The original palace was built by Raja Man Singh and additions were made later by Sawai Jai Singh. Within the palace are the Diwan-e-Aam or the "Hall of Public Audience", the Diwan-e-Khas or the "Hall of Private Audience" and the Sukh Niwas, the private chambers of the queens with windows having latticed screens so that the ladies could watch the proceedings of the royal court in privacy. There is also the Jai Mandir or the "Temple of Victory", with its famed Sheesh Mahal, the "Hall of Mirrors".
