The glorious pink city of India was once ruled by the Rajputs and royal families; hence, the traditional cultures are extensively followed throughout the city even today. Its royal charm and heritage value are instant crowd-pullers. It attracts travelers with its stunning remnants of bygone era. Ancient monuments, architectural buildings, beautiful palaces, museums, temples and gardens, attract a large number of people.

While the city itself -- the capital of Rajasthan -- may be dusty, dirty, crowded and full of traffic, Jaipur (the 3rd point in the so-called Golden Triangle) certainly merits a visit of at least a night. The magnificent Amber Fort is one of India's finest, and the Hawa Mahal (Palace of the Winds) with its ornate honeycomb-lattice structure, is one of the prettiest edifices in North India. Jaipur isn't the most charming place in Rajasthan, but it's also an absolutely essential stopover.

Jaipur fondly referred to as ‘the pink city’ is one place that you do need to visit once in your lifetime. I was amazed at its vibrant ambience. This was once a mighty Rajputana citadel which is clearly evident in its massive forts and heritage structures. Visiting Amber Fort was the highlight of my Jaipur Tour though I didn’t take the elephant ride which Maharajas of Jaipur traditionally took to go to fort premises. I also visited City Palace which once again is a grand fortress. Nearby is the UNESCO World Heritage Site Jantar Mantar which I also visited along with Hawa Mahal.
In the evening I went to Chokhi Dhani and it was an awesome experience to say the least. Chokhi Dhani is heritage and history of Rajasthan in a microcosm with an array of cultural and folk performances, puppet show and the concluding 5 course Marwari dinner is truly amazing. This is a must visit place in Jaipur.Recommended for

Rajasthan is the best place in the world if you wish to experience the glory and royalty of the era of raja-maharajas. This state truly possess amazing heritage which attracts tourists from across the globe. Its palaces and forts speak volumes about the lifestyles of the kings of the bygone era. Among the several forts of Rajasthan the Amber Fort in Jaipur is very fascinating.
Amber Fort epitomizes the glorious heritage of Jaipur. Carved out of white marble and red sandstone, the fort was built by Raja Man Singh I in 1592. Visit this fort and you will know the royal taste of the kings. It is considered one of the finest hilltop forts in India Tours. It seems as if the fort has rose up from the hill. There is a beautiful lake in the foreground of the fort which adds more beauty to it.

Make sure you get a guide in a rickshaw (three wheeled cabs) and ask the driver to bring you to his favorite spots. We did that and in 3 days not only saw the famous spots in the city, but also got to visit jewel / scarve factories, saw the most beautiful view at sunset, and learnt so much from our driver! The city is full of things to do and see, and people are very friendly.

Apart from the monuments and palaces, there's nothing else that the city holds today. The city lags behind badly in terms of infrastructure and job/earning opportunities. Jaipur's growth potential has been average.
1. Beautiful palaces
2. Temples and monuments
3. Relatively cleaner environment.
4. Good food
1. Very poor infrastructure
2. Poor facilities of living like electricity, water, day to day needs..
3. Toooo hot during summers.(48°C max)
4. Low Connectivity to other cities via rail and air.
5. Very dirty and congested especially old city.

It really is a beautiful city. The pink clay creates a lovely impact. There are so much Historical buildings and lots of shopping. The museum and the zoo is spectacular. However beware there are lots of people so willing to rob you and overcharge you for products. This seems to be a problem everywhere in India.
