Beautiful building located on a busy street with difficult access, limited parking. Worth stopping to get a picture. Many shops in the area with Indian products - shoes dresses foods more »
This monument needs no introduction. This beautiful pink structure is probably the most famous structure of Jaipur. Its built with pink stone and looks beautiful with its unique architecture. This place is located on a very crowded street full of hustle bustle near city palace. you can get good view only in early morning hours when traffic is less. in the night its lit with lighting and looks beautiful. The entry to this place is against tickets which can be purchased from the counter. no one forgets to get clicked against this beautiful building.
A salute to such a great Indian architecture the place was very beautiful. and most observable thing was that there was no sign of wind or even breeze at entry gate of palace but when go to the top and open the windows you feel a soothing breeze. One of the most famous places in Jaipur. Really a nice structure but not as expected. It is just a wall and has some sort of sculpture museum. Nice place to visit though. Has a good market around it. So, good if you want to shop and do sight seeing.That experience was marvellous .The place is really nice.
