In 1727, with Mughal power on the wane, Jai Singh decided the time was ripe to move down from his somewhat cramped hillside fortress at nearby Amber to the new site.

Breakfast at hotel Morning excursion to Amber Fort by Elephant (Subject to availability) / Jeep ride with photo stop at Hawa Mahal (Palace Of wind) Amber Palace: Amber (pronounced Amer) is situated about 11 kilometers from Jaipur and was the ancient citadel of the ruling Kachwahas of Amber, before the capital was shifted to the plains, the present day Jaipur. The Amber Fort set in picturesque and rugged hills is a fascinating blend of Hindu and Mughal architecture. Constructed by Raja Man Singh I in 1592 and completed by Mirja Raja Jai Singh the fort was made in red sand stone and white marble. The rugged forbidding exterior belies an inner paradise with a beautiful fusion of art and architecture. Amber is the classic and romantic fort-palace with a magnificent aura. The interior wall of the palace depicts expressive painting scenes with carvings, precious stones and mirror settings. In the foreground is the Maota Lake providing a breathtaking vista. Built mainly for the warring enemies as a safe place, the heavily structured walls could defend the residents within the ramparts of the fort.  Afternoon Jaipur city visit includes the City Palace & Jantar Mantar (Observatory) City Palace: Located in the heart of the walled city, the City Palace Complex gives you an idea about the farsightedness of the founder of Jaipur Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh. He left behind a legacy of some of the most imposing and magnificent architecture in the city. Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh built many buildings but some of the structures were also built by later rulers. The palace is a blend of Mughal and Rajput architecture and the ex-royal family still lives in a part of the palace. On entering the complex and before the proper palace lies the Mubarak Mahal, the palace of welcome or reception. Maharaja Sawai Madho Singh built the palace in the nineteenth century. It was used as a reception centre for the visiting personage. The building now forms the Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II Museum and on display here are a wide array of royal costumes, some very exquisite and precious Pashmina (Kashmiri) shawls, Benaras silk saris, Sanganeri prints and folk embroidery. An unusual display is that of voluminous clothes worn by Maharaja Sawai Madho Singh I (ruled 1750-68).  Jantar Mantar: Across the road from the palaces is the famous Jantar Mantar, one of the five observatories in India, built by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh. This is one of the largest and the best preserved. The king was passionate about astronomy and numerology – small wonder then that it led to the setting up of the observatory. The astronomer prince with the help of skilled laborers managed to create a collection of complex astronomical instruments chiseled out of stone, most of which continue to provide accurate information to this day. The most striking instrument is the Brihat Samrat yantra Sundial, the biggest sundial in the world an imposing yellow edifice to the far right of the observatory complex which has a 27m high gnomon arm set at an angle of 27degrees.The shadow that this casts moves up to 4m in an hour and aids in the calculation of local and meridian pass time and various attributes of the heavenly bodies, including declination, the angular distance of a heavenly body from the celestial equator and altitude. This highlight of the observatory which stands as a testimony to the genius of the Maharaja has made it a centre of attraction for the tourist visiting Jaipur. Jal Mahal : Possibly the most serene sight amidst the chaos of Jaipur is the beautiful Jal Mahal Jaipur, the Water Palace. This low-rise symmetrical palace, that once was a shooting lodge for the Maharajah, appears to float in the centre of Sagar Lake. The light sand coloured stone walls of the Jal Mahal Jaipur are at a stark contrast to the deep blue of the waters of the lake, while from the innards of the palace lush foliage sprouts. his majestic scene makes the Jal Mahal Jaipur’s most photographed (and photograph friendly) monument but unfortunately exploration of the actual palace is off limits, as it has been banned by Government , due to some dispute.
