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.

Albert Hall Museum is the official museum of Rajasthan and tourists can see glimpses of Jaipur history in the artifacts displayed there which include swords, cannons and clothes from the last three centuries.

Jal Mahal is a palace which stands majestically in the middle of Lake Man Sagar.

Rambagh Palace is now one of the Hotels in Jaipur but it used to be the residence of the Maharaja of Jaipur. It is situated in vast grounds measuring a total of 47 acres. It is a remarkable piece of architecture and is now one of the best hotels in the world.

The Maharajahs of Jaipur were patrons of the arts. They invited many artists and craftsmen to settle in Jaipur. As a result tourists love to roam around the city looking for great bargains in silver jewelry, miniature paintings, gems, Bandhani (colorful Rajasthani fabric) and stone carvings. Good hotels in Jaipur also guide their guests about the best shops in the city. If you want to explore the artistic land of Jaipur, head for it as winters are set to begin!
