While traveling through India, take a moment to head to Jaipur and wander through the old Hindu temples and the beautiful eastern landscape that the city has to offer.
At the center of the city of Jaipur is the old-walled quarter, an area filled with extravagant royal palaces that have earned it the title of the Pink City. Wander through the lavish remnants of India's strongest empire, and wind your way through the temples and bazaars that are located within the old city walls.
Enjoying the city at a slow pace will allow you to appreciate the finer things more. Visit the Hawa Mahal, or Palace of Winds, an intricate building with white designs standing out from the pinkish glow of the paint. If you get the opportunity, view the palace during the evening - it melds beautifully with the pink glow that is given off by the sun at sunset.
Also, take the chance to enjoy the City Palace, one of the main attractions of the Jaipur. Surrounded by colorful pink walls, the palace is not like any other sandstone palaces in the region, according to WildJunket.com. The City Palace is restored to show off the grandeur that it once housed. With shimmering chandeliers, arched gates and intricately carved walls, the palace is truly a magnificent piece of art.
