Check out the pink and red sandstone Palace of the Winds or Hawa Mahal in all its splendour, the City Palace, which is a palace complex in the Rajasthani capital of Jaipur. You can wander through the Mubarak Mahal and the Chandra Mahal, among other palace buildings.


Amer Fort, Jai Mahal and Jantar Mantar are other noteworthy sights not to be missed in Jaipur. Apart from all these breathtaking sites, go shopping for jewellery, Rajasthani clothes and feast on the most divine cuisine here.


Once you spend enough time here taking in the sites and sounds of Jaipur, it's time to head back to Delhi from where you can make your onward reservations.
