A ROYAL CITY, JAIPUR’S EXTRAVAGANT PALACES AND FORTS EVOKE THE MAGNIFICENCE OF RAJPUT PRINCES.

Tucked at the base of Rajasthan’s Nahargarh Hills, the Pink City was designed in 1727 according to Shilpa Shastra, the ancient philosophy of architecture. Now an international center of arts and business, Jaipur is still a captivating city, paying homage to its regal past while looking to the future.

DISCOVERIES

ANOKHI MUSEUM OF HAND PRINTING
CHANWAR PALKIWALON KI HAVELI (ANOKHI HAVELI), KHERI GATE, AMBER, JAIPUR
Anokhi Museum of Hand Printing

Tucked inside the magnificent Amber Fort in an elegant haveli, or historic mansion, is this museum dedicated to the ancient Rajasthani tradition of block printing. Founded by the renowned clothing, home goods, and textile brand of the same name, the museum showcases both the fabrics themselves and the processes, educating both artisans and visitors in this heritage craft.

JAIPUR BLUE POTTERY ART CENTRE
NEAR JAIN MANDIR, AMER ROAD, JAIPUR
Jaipur Blue Pottery Art Centre

One of Jaipur’s most internationally renowned handicrafts is its signature blue pottery, and there’s nowhere better to admire (and, of course, purchase) it than at this family-run ceramics shop. In business since the late 19th century, it’s the oldest of its kind, and offers a picture into Jaipur’s heritage and dedication to craftsmanship.

JAL MAHAL
ON MAN SAGAR LAKE
Jal Mahal

Dawn-colored palace walls reflect from the waters of Mansagar Lake, welcoming visitors to Jal Mahal. Built in the late 18th century, this private pleasure resort of the Jaipur royal family is now an impeccably restored cultural destination. The rooftop garden pavilion offers breathtaking views of the lake and the surrounding Nahargarh Hills. The lake and shores have been transformed into a healthy biosphere complete with a thriving wildlife.

JANTAR MANTAR
NEXT TO CITY PALACE
Jantar Mantar

Adjacent to the City Palace sits this curious collection of architectural monuments that, to the uninitiated, would seem meaningless. In fact, they’re giant astronomical observation instruments designed and built by the 18th-century Rajput ruler Jai Singh, who was fascinated by astronomy. Keep an eye out for the magnificent Samrat Yantra sundial and hire a guide in order to learn about each specific instrument.

JOHARI BAZAR
JOHARI BAZAR RD, RAMGANJ BAZAR, JAIPUR
Johari Bazar

Jaipur’s most famous bazaar is a labyrinthine marketplace that feels almost unchanged by the contemporary world. Both locals and tourists alike wander its alleys, perusing and haggling at the many tiny stalls selling traditional jewelry, textiles, sweets, and more. Those in search of styles aimed at foreigners should head to Roop Sagar, whose back section sells fabrics and clothes made for international designers.
