The spectacular City Palace is the residence of the former ruling family of Jaipur. It occupies the centre of the city, covering one-seventh of its area and surrounded by a high wall - the Sarahad. The architecture combines elements of Rajput beauty with Mughal spaciousness and English linear planning.
The Hawa Mahal is all fašade, an elaborate palace exterior complete with nine hundred and fifty three windows and niches of inconceivable delicacy. However behind this facade are no buildings, for it is a maze of corridors and resting points. The clever fašade also trapped the breeze, earning it the name "Palace of Breezes".
Literally "instruments for measuring the harmony of the heavens", the Jantar Mantar Observatory was built between the year 1728-1734. Each of the instruments serves a particular function and each gives an accurate reading.
Amber (the fortress palace) was one of the most important of all Rajput cities. It was the ancient capital of the Kacchwaha Rajputs from the 12th century until the foundation of Jaipur in the early 18th century. The seventeenth century fort complex at Amber occupies a steep hillside, overlooking the strategic pass that gave entry to the kingdom of the Kacchwaha Maharajas from the Mughal territories to the north. Surrounding the fort is an 18-km defense wall, which at its lowest measures 21 feet. From the fort wall, near the parade ground, a very old temple can be seen in Amber village. The Jagat Shiromani Temple was built in 16 A.D and is famous for its sculptures.
Jaigarh fort towers above Amber like a watchful eagle. Jaigarh housed the legendary Kacchwaha Treasury. The loyal Mina tribe, the former rulers of Amber, guarded it using their skills as archers and mountain fighters. Its gigantic bastions, gateways and watchtowers are a testimony to the power of the Jaipur Rulers. The forbidding medieval fort was never captured and so has survived virtually intact which makes it particularly interesting. The armory at Jaigarh has a large collection of swords and small arms
Rajvilas is 13 miles from JAI-Sanganeer Airport.
Climate: During winter days are warm but nights can be quite chilly. Things quickly warm up thereafter in the buildup to the monsoon season, and late autumn can be unbearably hot. The rains usually come in late June, bringing with them a welcome respite from the heat - although high summer humidity can mitigate the relief. Autumn is the most pleasant season of all.
