  • Day 1: Delhi to Jaipur by road

    Our representative will meet you in Delhi and help you be seated in a comfortable vehicle for a four hour drive to Jaipur.

    Jaipur, also called the ‘pink city’, is fraught with palatial architecture, mahals and forts that glorify the rich past, as well as, with clambering auto rickshaws, alleyways and camel laden rides making Jaipur a heady mix of the old and new, the grand and the mundane.

    Hawa Mahal or the Palace of Winds is another architectural wonder in the city of Jaipur. With an exterior that reminds one of a honeycomb or beehive, the Hawa Mahal is built with perfect logical conclusions in order to allow the maximum circulation of air during the hot summers. This five-storied structure is made of lime and mortar and intricately decorated with delicate designs and latticeworks. The jharokas or windows offered privacy for the queens to peep out onto the world making Hawa Mahal an architectural feat of historical significance.
