Jaipur is the capital of the state of Rajasthan, India. In winters it becomes the perfect weekend getaway for people living in the national capital, New Delhi and the National Capital Region. The city has been the home of the Maharajas of Jaipur. As a result there are many forts and palaces in and around Jaipur. Some of these ancient buildings have been converted into a resort in Jaipur.

Jaipur is a haven for tourists

Hotels in Jaipur are dotted all over the city. These range from the bed and breakfast lodges, budget hotels to world class 5 star hotels and resorts in Jaipur. Jaipur is visited by tourists from all over the world. This has resulted in a hotel infrastructure which is of high standards. Tourists are welcomed and given a pleasant experience of hospitality.

There are several famous 5 star hotels in Jaipur. Most of these hotels in Jaipur are located in central locations. The 5 star hotels in Jaipur are good enough to give competition to the best hotels in the world. They allow tourists to visit all the famous places of the city with ease and these include:-

Hawa Mahal is a palace which was built at the end of the eighteenth century. It is made of pink and red sandstone and is shaped like the crown of Lord Krishna. It has 953 Jharokhas or windows where the royal ladies could sit and observe processions and day to day life in the streets.

Amber Fort is a dominating citadel about eleven kilometers from Jaipur. It is a must for every city because of its imposing battlements, cannons and museum. It is a great example of the synthesis of Hindu and Mughal architecture. Many hotels in Jaipur provide free transportation to the fort.

Jantar Mantar is an observatory built in the middle of the eighteenth century. It was built for Maharaja Jai Singh II.

The Maharajahs of Jaipur were patrons of the arts. They invited many artists and craftsmen to settle in Jaipur.
