Free Walking Tour of Jaipur
After meeting your guide at the Wind View Cafe in front of the Hawa Mahal, you'll begin your walking tour of Jaipur. Learn why this stunning building is named the "Palace of the Winds" as you admire the incredible intricacies of the red sandstone architecture.
Next, you'll stroll through the streets of Jaipur, or the Pink City, as it is known, after Maharajah Ram Singh ordered that the main buildings of the historic centre be painted salmon pink as a special welcome to the Prince of Wales, who visited the city in 1876. The colour is meant to signify fortune and friendship.
You'll then arrive at Sawai Man Singh Town Hall and Jantar Mantar, one of the five observatories constructed throughout India by Maharajah Jai Singh, who was an avid astronomy fan. Stop at the ancient market, where you can see the different street food stalls and the typical products sold there.
Finally, you'll reach the Albert Hall Museum, the state museum of Rajasthan, which is housed in an excellent example of Indo-Saracenic architecture. Your free tour will finish outside the Maharaja Book Shop.
