So far I am able to judge, nothing has been left undone, either by man or nature, to make India the
most extraordinary country that the sun visits on his rounds. Nothing seems to have been forgotten, nothing overlooked – Mark Twain, from following the  Equator

After breakfast, we will drive to Jaipur. Upon arrival, we will check in to hotel, ITC Rajputana. After rest and relaxation, we will experience a unique walking tour of Jaipur, where we wander through the winding narrow lanes bustling with activity. The walk would enable to us an opportunity to interact with local residence, skilled craftsmen and traditional traders. The idea is not only to bring to the visitor the history and tradition of the place, but, to also bring to you face to face with the people who have made it possible for this heritage to generate and sustain for centuries. The rulers of Jaipur were great patrons of crafts. It is for this reason that the city is considered the craft capital of India, where traditional crafts are still produced using techniques passed on through generations. Our walk also brings to us the opportunity to witness and sample (if willing) some of the most favorite street foods prepared and sold by vendors who have had this business for years. Some favorites would be – samosas, tikkis, chaat etc. Our walk also winds through the local artisan’s compounds and workshops. Jewelers and silver smiths, gold painters and the tie and dye artists.

Then, the unique art of enameling on metal (Meenakari) and traditional methods of gem setting (Kundan) offer unique insights into the crafts of the region. A special mention must be made of our walk along the bustling (Hanuman Ka Rasta) lane. This is a craft lover’s delight, where from wedding card manufactures to book binding and printing to gold and silver casters and gem stone traders are all to be found offering a delightful reminder of crafts of the bygone era. We would also visit a president’s award winning Meenakari craftsmen’s workshop, and, observe the brisk business undertaken by the gem stone traders on Gopalji Ka Rasta. A walk through ‘Ghee Walon Ka Rasta’ offers opportunities to find some of the traditional food in town. As our walk reaches Johari bazaar, you would notice money changes excitedly take stock of their collections of old coin – some of these coins could date back to more than 200 yrs. The last stop of our walk would see us mingle with perfumes and flower sellers. Thank you for walking with us on the trail of time where history, traditions, crafts and above all traditional hospitality came to life.

Day 04: Jaipur

After breakfast, we will proceed for a tour of Galta Temple. Known by locals and rickshaw-wallahs simply as Monkey Temple, GalwarBagh is a popular pilgrimage site and temple complex on the outskirts of town. The temple itself is called GultaJiMandir  it’s a 30-minute walk from the ceremonial gate called Gulta Pol, located at the far eastern edge of the city, off Ajmer Road—about five minutes from the Muslim quarter. The walk leads you over a small mountain pass and past, inevitably, at least a few Hindu sadhus (holy men) and small temples. Jaipuri Hindus believe that at the site of the GultaJiMandir, a local saint named Gala Rishi—nicknamed GultaJi—brought forth a spring of holy water from the Ganges and filled a tank (water reservoir 18 feet deep. The waters here are said to be spiritually connected to the Ganges—if you bathe here, you get the same benefits as a pilgrimage to the Ganges. The temple, which venerates Lord Brahma, Creator of the Universe, is in violation of a curse by Brahma’s wife Savatri; she confined his temples to Pushkar. We will visit the Hawa Mahal or Palace of the Winds, a five-storied structure of pink sandstone with semi-octagonal and delicately honeycombed windows overlooking the main street of the old city. It was built in 1799 so that veiled royal women could peer down unseen by the world through its 593 stone screens. Next, we will visit Amber Fort, the former capital of the royal Jaipurs. Few fail to be moved by the dramatic Rajput grandeur of this hilltop fortress-palace 11 km north of Jaipur. Set on the dry wrinkled Aravali Hills, and surrounded by fortified battlements, the palace straddles two sepia-hued tundra hills overlooking Maota Lake, and its sprawling crenellated walls lattice the surrounding hills. We will ride up to this hilltop palace on a Jeep. Our guide will elaborate on the history of this architectural masterpiece with its mirror-studded alcoves, dazzling mosaics and water-cooled swings that delight today’s visitors as they did their former royal residents.

Later, we will visit the Panna Meena ka Kund. This beautiful place was constructed during sixteenth century. The place was mainly utilized as a place of social meetings. People from nearby places come here for getting water, swimming or just to hang out with their loved ones. During ancient times, this place was utilized mainly as water protects pool. This beautiful Kund has a unique architecture and styling. This Kund was designed by a Brahmin and constructed by craftsmen and engineers. We would also stop at Jal Mahal palace for photos. (From Outside Only) Then, we will proceed on a tour Of the City Palace & Observatory. The City Palace in the heart of the old city is a blend of Rajasthani and Mughal architecture. The palace lies in the heart of the city and occupies the whole central grid. The fortified wall has seven gates and was built for protection from invading armies and animals that lived in jungles, which surrounded the wall that time. Next, we visit the Solar Observatory – an astronomical treasure house, with solar device that give accurate predictions till date. We will also visit Nahargarh Fort to achieve sunset views. Nahagarh Fort stands on the edge of the Aravalli Hills, overlooking the pink city of Jaipur in the Indian state of Rajasthan. The view of the city from the fort is breath taking. Along with Amber Fort and Jaigarh Fort it formed a strong defense ring for the city. During the Sepoy revolt of 1857 Nahagarh served as a refuge for Europeans fleeing from the havoc created by mutineers in neighboring states.
