Places I visited in Jaipur
I stayed in this royal city for a week, and this was my most memorable experience with my family. All the places in Jaipur city elated my soul. It was full of serene beauty, magnificent historical palaces and forts, which glanced at old Indian Architecture design, and alluring artworks. The places I visited are listed below.
One of the first places we visited was Amer Fort. It is one of the chief glamours of Jaipur and is located 11 kilometers from the city. This fort, also known as Amber Fort, is a beautiful place and is well-known for its spectacular surroundings and astonishing palaces.
The next place we visited was Jaigarh Fort. Jaigarh Fort, also known as Victory Fort, was built by Maharaja Jai Singh and is located around 900 meters from the Amber Fort. Standing on the hilltop, this spectacular fort is the perfect place to explore the entire city of Jaipur from its top.
My cousins and I enjoyed taking pictures, and my family was stunned by the panoramic views of the pink city that can be best seen from this fort.
Now, the place for which the Pink City is famous is Hawa Mahal. Also known as the Palace of Winds, this is the most crucial attraction of Jaipur. We visited Hawa Mahal in the morning because it is the best time as the sun’s golden rays touch it.
Known as the hunting house of kings, Nahargarh Fort is located on the edge of Aravalli Hills. We visited this fort on the last days of our trip, and we didn’t regret it. This glorious fort is full of mystery and incredible architecture, making our souls satisfied.

After exploring these magnificent places, we also visited other beautiful city charms like City Palace, Jal Mahal, Albert Hall, Govind Devji Temple, Raj Mandir Cinema, and Laxmi Narayan Temple.
