Jaipur has been a delightful escape for us. It has offered us culture, history, heritage, delicious food and amazing people. But it still has got more to explore. Any tourist can figure out why Jaipur is called “Pink City” after visiting places like Hawa Mahal, City Palace etc. Apart from Jaipur the most awaited place was Bhangarh after all the hype around it for being the most haunted place. 

We wanted to explore the Bhangrah fort as well as it is not very far from Jaipur and we could accommodate it in our itinerary.

Places to visit in Jaipur

1. Jantar Mantar

The Jantar Mantar is a collection of 19 architectural astronomical instruments. It features the world’s largest stone sundial and has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. These instruments allow the observation of astronomical positions of celestial bodies with the naked eye. It is so fascinating to understand how these instruments work.

2. City Palace

The majestic City Palace is one of the major attraction in the Pink city and was built by the founder of Jaipur city i.e. Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh. It is a vast beautiful complex and has a fusion of both Mughal and Rajput architecture. It is still home for the last ruling family. The palace is divided into multiple courtyards, buildings and gardens including the Chandra Mahal and the Mubarak Mahal. The museum showcases several unique handcrafted products and other things that belong to the royal heritage of the City Palace.

4. Bapu Bazar

Bapu Bazar is one of the most popular shopping markets for traditional stuff like Jutis, Bangles, Dupattas, Sarees etc. Located in the heart of the city, it attracts tourists from all over India for traditional, authentic and affordable products.

Itinerary for Day 3 and Day 4

Day 3

After proper rest, we started our day with breakfast. Then we decided to go to Jantar Mantar first in the morning. We downloaded the app so that we can understand what each instrument does. It was a great experience.

Then we went to Hawa Mahal as we have not been inside Hawa Mahal before. Hawa Mahal has got multiple floors and exploring each floor is a delight.

After lunch, we visited the City Palace. Since its such a large complex, we spent most of our day in City Palace and the pink city around. We watched the puppet show inside the complex. There are many museums and small courtyards and gardens to visit.

In the evening we went shopping in the Bapu Bazaar as suggested by locals. This market is must visit place for shopaholics and, even if, you are not shopaholic still you will love the place for its authentic and traditional collections. This should be in everyone’s list.

After shopping, we were so tired that we decided to have our dinner and go back to the hotel.

Day 4

Since we were tired from the last day, we get up late. Bhangarh has always been on my list since its the most haunted place in India. And now that, I am in Jaipur, I could not miss the chance to visit this deserted place. We started around 1 for Bhangarh and since its a deserted place there are no proper signboards and you have to use your instincts sometimes to reach the place.

It was about 85 km ride. It was exciting and thrilling to visit the haunted place. We have heard so many stories about the place. When we entered the premises, it was scary as we couldn’t see anyone around. But it was fun exploring the whole fort and village. We spent our evening there and then started back to Jaipur and fortunately nothing happened.
