Jaipur holiday highlights

Visit Jaipur’s famous Hawa Mahal (Palace of the Winds) early in the morning when its red and pink sandstone facade is soaked in incredible golden sunlight. The City Palace is an exquisite complex of Rajhastani and Mughal architecture also housing a museum and art gallery. Just ten kilometres outside of Jaipur lies Galta, an 18th Century sacred site. The Monkey Temple here is worth a visit at sunset when monkeys can be seen swimming in the sacred pools. Half an hour drive out of the city, the unique Amber Fort and Palace lies overlooking the Maota Lake, soaked in history and stunning architecture.
