Jaipur Day Tour

Jaipur, the City of Victory, is chaotic and congested, though it still has a habit of tickling travelers pink. Stunning hilltop forts and glorious palaces fit like footprints from a rich royal past, candy floss-bright turbans blaze a trail through brilliant bargain-filled bazaars, and fluttering saris catch the eye like butterflies.
 Morning pick up from hotel/airport & enjoy guided city tour including:
Amber Fort
Situated on a ridge just outside Jaipur City. At the foot of the hill you will mount your caparisoned elephant for the slow but steady climb up to the main gate, making your entrance in the time honored fashion.he image of the Amber Fort is beautifully reflected in the lake below. Within the Fort lies the famous Jai Mandir (Temple) with its world-renowned hall of mirrors, Sheesh Mahal. The walls and the ceiling of the Mahal are covered with a beautiful array of mirrors, which reflects any streak of light, so as to illuminate the entire room. 
Jal Mahal
The rajput style "Water Palace" sits in the center of the Man Sarobar lake. The lake is often dry in the summer but winter monsoons frequently turn it into a beautiful lake filled with water hyacinths. A must–do in Jaipur is 
City Palace
In the heart of the old city lies the royal residence of the erstwhile King of Jaipur. Built using a blend of Rajasthani and Mughal styles, the palace has carved arches and intricately crafted columns. Two carved marble elephants guard the entrance. The palace houses a Museum with a superb collection of Rajasthani costumes. The museum also houses an armoury of unique Mughal and Rajput weaponry. In one section of the museum, one can witness national award-winning artists recreating miniature art forms. The palace also has an art gallery with an excellent collection of miniature paintings, carpets, royal paraphernalia and rare astronomical works in Arabic, Persian, Latin and Sanskrit, which were acquired by Sawai Jai Singh II in order to fulfill his passion for astronomy. 
Jantar Mantar Observatory (A Unesco World Heritage Site)
This is the largest of Jai Singh's five remarkable open-air stone observatories. Its complex instruments, whose setting and shapes are scientifically designed, represent the high point of medieval Indian astronomy. The most striking of these are the Ram Yantras used for gauging altitudes. 
Hawa Mahal or Palace of the Winds.
Built in 1799 A.D., the Hawa Mahal or Palace of Winds is a major Rajput landmark. This five-storied building along the main street of the old city is a pink sandstone masterpiece with semi-octagonal and delicately honeycombed windows. The monument was originally conceived with the aim of enabling ladies of the royal household to watch the everyday life and royal processions in the city - in absolute privacy.
Galtaji Temple
Far beyond the gardens, amidst low hills rests the ancient pilgrimage centre, Galtaji. A world of temples, pavilions and holy kunds (natural spring and reservoirs) coupled with lush landscape make it a delightful spot. The small temple on the top of the highest peak, dedicated to the Sun God, is visible from all parts of the city. Ganesh Temple and Lakshmi Narayan Temple at the foothills of Moti Doongri Fort Moti Doongri is a privately owned hilltop fort built like a Scottish castle. The Ganesh Temple at the foot of the hill and the marvelous Lakshmi Narayan Temple built in marbles a few years back, are worth visiting.
