Jaipur walking tour

Bazaars, crafts and cuisine of old Jaipur walking tour

From its creation in 1727 the royal families and nobles of Jaipur patronised the craftsmen and artisans of the city. These traditions continue to this day and as a result modern day Jaipur is considered by many as the craft capital of India. Using skills passed down through generations the jewellers, silversmiths, gold painters, meenakari and kundan artists in the areas of Ghat Darwaza and Vishveshwar ji can be seen producing many valuable and highly prized items. This fascinating two hour evening walk through the bazaars allows clients to meet these artists in their workshops whilst discovering the region’s culinary delights.

Significant highlights include:

  • Hanuman Ka Rasta is a bustling alley and craft lover’s delight. From silversmiths to book binders this lane is a hive of activity.
  • Visit a fifth generation meenakari craftsman.
  • Observe the animated gemstone traders on Gopalji ka Rasta.
  • Ghee Walon ka Rasta is an entire street dedicated to eating which is a foodie heaven for the locals! See the
  • theatre of Indian street food preparation.
  • Visit Nayala Haveli, a beautiful frescoed building hidden behind large gates which is now owned and managed bythe local Jain community.
  • See the perfume and flower sellers in front of Laksmi Narayan Baiji.
  • Tea & Snacks with a local family at their residence
