Curator’s statement

Jaipur is called the Pink City due to the color of its buildings in the main part of the city. This vibrant city is considered a UNESCO World Heritage site on its own, but also contains two separate UNESCO sites: Amer Fort and Jantar Mantar. Jaipur is also close to several wildlife preserves and is one of the three cities that make up the Golden Triangle of India.

Things to do in Jaipur, India

Jaipur travel guide.

Amer Fort and Palace: A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the picturesque fort sits above the entire valley and was originally the home of the rulers of the area. The views alone are worth the visit, but inside the fort is a building called the Sheesh Mahal, made up of small mirrors that must look amazing by torchlight. The surrounding town has a wall that is built up that looks very similar to the Great Wall of China and is the 3rd longest continuous wall in the world.

Hawa Mahal (Wind Palace): Probably one of the most photographed buildings in Jaipur, this was a facade for the women's quarters at the City Palace and is quite stunning.

Nila House: Here you can find traditional Indian textile crafts woven by local artisans. The work done by hand is impressive and deserving of a stop. You may even be so impressed that you want to purchase a handmade intricate rug to bring home.

Dera Amer Wilderness Camp: Only a half-hour drive outside of Jaipur, this animal sanctuary feels very remote. Home to three female elephants that you can interact with, this remarkable preserve is also opening up permanent tents where you can stay overnight for a novel experience. You can also have a fully-catered outdoor dinner at the preserve, which is an unforgettable setting as the sun goes down.

City Palace: This is where the royal family used to rule. The heirs of the former royal family still live there. There is a museum with royal artifacts, weaponry and clothing that you can see on display while visiting the royal temples and courtyards.

Places to eat & drink in Jaipur, India

Jaipur travel guide.

Surya Mahal: Great food, both Indian and Western, in a beautiful setting. You can sit outside in the courtyard where they have entertainment on an evening when the weather is nice.

Suvarna Mahal: With the decor and ambiance that looks straight out of Versailles, this opulent restaurant serves a diversity of regional Indian cuisines in a fine dining atmosphere.

Handi Restaurant: Famous for its meats, this restaurant offers both tandoor and Mughal specialties. One of its main attractions is the skyline view of Jaipur, popular with both locals and tourists.

Bar Palladio: Considered one of the iconic spots to have a drink and photo, this striking bar is a combination of Italian Renaissance design mixed with Mughal architecture. Add in an extensive cocktail menu and outdoor seating in a beautiful garden area have made this place a trendy stop.
