Often referred to as the Pink City, Jaipur has been a staple of India tours for decades. A unique combination of past and present, the city of 3.1 million people is at once a bustling metropolis and a window into the storied history of India. Virtually every site you visit during your trip to Jaipur will be fulfilling, but there are several that you surely can't miss when you're in the Paris of India.
While India may not be commonly recognized as one of the pioneers of astronomy, Jantar Mantar may help change that perception. A collection of architectural astronomical instruments, the centuries-old landmark is among the most important scientific structures of the 1700s.
The observatory is the largest of its kind in the world, and today it stands as a testament to the important role famed ruler Jai Singh II played in Indian history. Visitors will surely be captivated by the site's 18 astronomical structures, which include two uniquely designed giant sundials.
Jaipur is home to a long list of forts and monuments, but few are quite like Amber Fort. The structure was built in 1592 by Raja Man Singh I, and while it served an important role in Indian history, its significance is overshadowed by its sheer aesthetic appeal, which is responsible for attracting an estimated 5,000 visitors every day.
More of a palace than anything else, Amber Fort houses innumerable artifacts that speak to the opulence of the rulers who lived there. Among the highlights is the Sheesh Mahal, or mirror palace. This ornately decorated room is covered in mosaics and colored glass that creates a one-of-a-kind aesthetic.
Jaipur has become a popular destination for filmmakers in recent years, with its historic backdrop setting the tone for some dramas. Chad Baori, famous stepwell, has been among the most regularly visited.
A short distance from the Harshat Mata temple, you'll likely recognize the unusual formation from the 2006 film "The Fall," or perhaps more recently from "The Dark Knight Rises."
