Famous Historical Places in Jaipur

These are the 5 historical places in Jaipur that you must visit:

Looking for a place that’s fewer rules and more chills? Check our residences in Jaipur

Hawa Mahal

Hawa Mahal is one of the most famous monuments in Jaipur. And its main purpose was to allow women from the royal family to witness festivities on the streets. On top of it, the palace gets its name from the large mesh of small windows or ‘jharokhas. They allowed air to come in and keep the palace cool even during summers. And believe it or not, there are 953 of these windows in total. Well, that’s still less than the number of windows (on your browser) on the night before you have to submit your assignment lol.

Jantar Mantar

Sure, it sounds like the title of a children’s story your grandma would tell. But this serious architectural marvel would be more at place in an epic historical novel. The UNESCO heritage site is the largest stone astronomical observatory in the world. It allowed people to note the position of heavenly bodies with the naked eye. Jantar Mantar was built by Raja Sawai Jai Singh in 1723. So yup, he was kinda like the forefather of all the dudes who write ‘stargazer’ in their insta bio.

Jal Mahal

Jal Mahal is located on, well, water. Or more precisely, the Man Sagar Lake. It’s a beautiful palace (with its ground floors submerged underwater) right in the middle of the lake. And that alone makes it one of the famous monuments of Jaipur. The site is also a bird-watchers paradise, where one can observe exotic birds from distant lands. But the dark plot twist is that it was once a shooting lodge for Rajput rulers. Such a good place to visit if you appreciate irony.

Nahargarh Fort

Nahargarh is probably the one fort on every tourist itinerary. And given the grand aura and mysticity of the fort, we’re not surprised at all. The fort is a huge complex with large open courtyards. And it offers breathtaking views of the city too. But make sure you wear shoes and not those super thin sandals when you visit. Coz the ground becomes hot and will probably burn your feet if you don’t. And wait, carry water bottles with you. Yes, bottles. Not bottle.

Amber Fort

Amber Fort is surely one of the most popular heritage places in Jaipur. Located 11 kms away from the city, the fort is clad with yellow and pink sandstone. It’s a major attraction for tourists, history buffs, travel influencers, and of course, destination weddings. On top of it, the fort lighting up in the evening is a mesmerizing sight to look at. So what if you don’t have the big bucks for a destination wedding? You could still go for a romantic date and take some nice pictures. Call it a pre ‘pre-wedding shoot’, maybe?
