Top 5 things to do in Jaipur

The walled city of Jaipur often referred as Pink City as its distant charm . With original city wall still integral, Pink Stucco building and shops , straight wide roads and numerous gateway. The city of Jaipur is a fine representation on how magnificent   our historic town planning was; a rare example in India where most of our cities are in such a chaotic state .

The Pink City was commissioned in 1727 AD with the  vision of late  Sawai Jai Singh II. A Bengali architect Vidya­dhar Bhattacharya formalised the new city’s plans according to a grid system. After dividing the city into nine blocks, or chowkries.

So here is my recommendations on Top 5 things to do while you are visiting Jaipur

1)      Guided Heritage walking tour  – Virasat Experiences conducts theme based Walking Tours in the old quarters of Jaipur . Their aim to bring alive all the diverse elements of city’s heritage. Whether  traditional  temples, monuments and building , or living craft and culture , or tradition cuisines like  sweets making . The entire heritage of people, culture and architecture becomes interesting through the process of walking leisurely and engaging along our carefully designed city walks.

2)      Jaipur Cycle Tours – Undertake a early morning Cycle Tour .Its a great way to unwind and get breakaway from noise , pollution ,crowd and usual site seeing of forts and palaces . Paddling trough  walled city in early hours when it’s still serene and to venture out to explore nearby mountains and lesser known places around Jaipur .

4)      Jaipur Social Tour –  If you are keen to explore the city beyond tourit attractions . Visiting NGO’s can be a rewarding experience .

5)      Trekking in Amber – Amber Fort is the most popular tourist place in Jaipur . But very few visitors are able to realize that there is much more to this place than a historic fort . For those with a love of the outdoors, beautiful scenery and fresh air,  Virasat Experiences can offer gentle trekking in the surrounding Aravali hills. Dotted with  ancient ruins , hidden shines , water harvesting structures , its a entirely unknown world .
