1. City Palace
On 3rd day, we headed to City Palace, which was once the seat of king of Jaipur. City palace includes Chandra Mahal and Mubarak Mahal. Chandra Mahal holds a great museum now, although the majority portion of it is still a royal residence.
The palace is easily identifiable by its pink architecture – Yes! I know you will say entire Jaipur city is indeed pink ;-). You will be mesmerized by the entry of the palace itself which has a great stoned craved door. The entire palace holds vast array of courtyards, beautiful gardens, buildings and historical heritage.
I couldn’t get much pictures of the palace as the place was loaded with tourist, yet some of the pictures are here –
2. Jal Mahal(Water Palace)
On our way back, we got to see Jal Mahal(Water Palace) – unfortunately, we couldn’t go inside because it was closed at that time. I still managed to take the picture from slightly far location which was in itself such a beauty difficult to put down in words.
3. Birla Mandir(Temple)
The last bit of our trip was headed towards Birla Mandir (Temple), which is a Hindu Temple having vast white colored architecture. The temple is located on elevated ground at the base of Moti Dungari hill in Rajasthan.
Some of the pictures are:
That’s all from my Jaipur trip.
Until next time..
