Jaipur in 24 Hours

India, Jaipur Guide (B): Jaipur in 24 Hours

About two hundred and eighty kilometers southwest from India’s capital New Delhi, is Rajasthan (literally translated into Land of The Kings), the capital of which is Jaipur. It was to this city that I went and after 24 hours (exactly) in this city, absorbing, along with the summer heat, much of the history, food and great people, I still hunger for more.

Every moment spent here has an interesting story attached to it. I also learnt that Jaipur was India’s first planned city, built way back in the eighteenth century by Sawai Jai Singh. Today, Jaipur is far ahead in town planning and infrastructure as compared to the rest of the country and hygiene standards is quite commendable. It was a sheer surprise to find public facilities clean and well maintained! Five stars for that!

So, travelers to Jaipur – there is no need to go easy on the water – drink to your heart’s content – public toilets here are not going to make you cringe!

If you are visiting in summer, bear in mind that the heat can be very intense – so carry a hat, apply sunscreen generously and drink plenty of water. Water fountains (cold and free) can be found within the fort compounds and is very safe to drink. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
