The collection of nineteen astronomical instruments in Jantar Mantar allows the observation of astronomical positions with the naked eye.
Hawa Mahal or the 'Palace Of The Winds' located in the heart of the beautiful Pink City of Jaipur in Rajasthan, India, is one of the most famous tourist attractions and a prominent landmark of the city that is renowned for its rich cultural and architectural history. Built in 1799 by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh of the Kachhwaha Rajput dynasty, this beautiful structure is predominantly a high screen wall made of pink and red sandstone that facilitated royal women to get an eyeful of the street festivals and busy city life while remaining out of the view of public.
Birla Mandir is a very famous temple and a highly-regarded pilgrimage for the Hindus. Birla Mandir in Jaipur is a marvellous structure that speaks of beauty in every possible way. Built of marble this beautiful temple is visited by thousands of devotees every day. This temple is surrounded by lush gardens on all sides and is a treat for the eyes to see such colourful flowers all in one place. The temple has three domes and has beautiful drawings and carvings all around. The walls are covered with quotes and sayings from well-known preachers and holy men.
Located deep within the walled city, the City Palace Complex was conceived and built by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, the founder of Jaipur. A beautiful fusion of Mughal and Rajput architecture, the palace is still home to the last ruling royal family which lives in a private section of the palace. Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II is credited with building most of the structures, but it was expanded upon by later rulers as well. The City Palace Complex includes the Mubarak Mahal (the palace of reception) and the Maharani’s Palace (the palace of the queen). Mubarak Mahal now houses the Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II Museum and displays a vast and unique collection of royal costumes, delicate Pashmina (Kashmiri) shawls, Benaras silk saris, and other dresses with Sanganeri prints and folk embroidery.
Located on the Hill of Eagles, Jaigarh fort was built in 1726 AD by Sawan Jai Singh II. Jaigarh Fort is located at a height of 500 feet above sea level and offers panoramic views of the surrounding. It houses the world's largest cannon on the wheels called 'Jaivana Cannon'. There are various other attractions within the fort like Laxmi Vilas, Lalit Mandir, Aram Mandir and the Vilas Mandir. Jaigarh Fort is made-up of sandstones and is spread over an area of 3 km. Made with the purpose of protecting Amer Fort, Jaigarh fort is considered as the strongest monument of Jaipur. Also known by the name of 'Victory Fort', this place was considered as a storehouse of all the war amours, cannons, arms and ammunitions. There is a Persian style garden within the complex of the fort which is divided into 4 parts.
Jal Mahal, one of the top places to visit in Jaipur, doesn’t have any recorded history about who built it or when. However, it is popularly believed that Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh constructed Jal Mahal in 1799 to serve as a hunting lodge during his duck shooting trips. Some people also credit Maharaja Madho Singh I for the construction of this palace and date its origins back to the 1750s. Regardless of who built the palace, it was never meant to be used as a regular palace for living.
Great Hospitality and nice overall experience :-
We visited this resort for a short weekend trip to Jaipur in May. It is very well situated on the Gurgaon Jaipur highway. It is built as a royal palace and the rooms also have a royal feel. We had very good experience with all the staff of the hotel specially Abhay. Everyone was very attentive and polite in the conversation. We also got a free room upgrade. The occupancy in the resort was very low due to the off season and because of which the buffet was not operational which is understandable. They had fully functional Ala-carte menu in the restaurant. My 5 year old son had a nice time in the pool and big size bath tub.
Your personal marble palace :-
Excellent stay! Beautiful Marble Palatial Experience with Concierge Service Throughout. Pricey food with limited menu options but the chef was willing to cater to our personal needs. A little off the beaten path and remote but therefore less crowded as well, not too far from Amber Fort. Very Clean, Very Personable staff.
Awesome Palatial Experience :-
A Royal Welcome followed by awesome accommodation, lovely dinner accompanied by Live Music makes the stay at Shiv Vilas a Lifetime Experience. Hands on GM Chako is always there to make sure that the Experience nothing nothing less than what you came for, "Royal".
Wonderful palace just outside Jaipur :-
We had a great stay at Shiv Vilas Palace resort. Is is very close to Jaipur so you can visit the Pink City and relax afterwards in this luxurious environment; a true palace. It absolutely deserves its 5 stars. The service is perfect and the friendly staffs members make you feel at home from the first moment on. The rooms are luxurious and comfortable; the pool is very nice with nice corners and tables to have breakfast, lunch or dinner. There are several restaurants and the food (both Western and Indian) is very good. The styling of the hotel is elegant and beautiful. Also good for business meetings but we were on a holiday which we enjoyed it a lot. Will be back!
