Private jet charter to JaipurThe Pink City of Jaipur has dazzled visitors since 1727, when it was first built by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II. Rajasthan’s capital is filled with impressive forts, regal Mughal palaces, exotic attractions and world-class shopping. This magical city’s terracotta architecture dates back to 1876, when Maharaja Ram Singh painted the city pink as a sign of hospitality to welcome the Prince of Wales and Queen Victoria. After the royal visit, residents embraced the rosy hue and decided to keep up the tradition. Arrange your private jet to Jaipur with Air Charter Service.
If you only have one day in Jaipur, spend the morning wandering around its Old City. The main attraction is the beautiful City Palace – this former royal residence features a spectacular blend of Rajasthani and Mughal architecture along with sprawling courtyards and gardens. Located nearby and also worth a visit is Hawa Mahal (‘Palace of the Winds’). In the afternoon, walk up to the iconic Amber Fort just north of Jaipur, which stands proudly upon a hilltop overlooking Man Sagal Lake. Other attractions include Jantar Mantar Observatory, Nahargarh ‘Tiger’ Fort, Jaigarh Fort and Monkey Temple.
Rajasthan is one of the world’s shopping capitals, and its famous crafts and unique handiwork are exported to shops all over India and the rest of the world. Find them here at the source and get the pick of the bunch – just make sure you bring a big enough suitcase or be prepared to buy a few more along the way! Rich tapestries embroidered with sequins and elephant motifs make for opulent wall hangings, pillow covers and throws; while silks, linen garments and suits can be made to order. Visit the Andraab studio for the finest textiles and shawls made from Kashmir silk, or browse intricate leatherwork, traditional shoes and elaborate carpets. Brassware, marble sculptures and wooden carvings are also popular souvenirs, alongside fragrant spices, essential oils and tea.
For precious stones and jewellery, explore Johari Bazaar and Tripolia Bazaar, where traditional bangles and lac jewellery line the lively streets. Visit the Gem Palace to watch craftsmen at work in this historical jewellery workshop and find one-of-a-kind pieces to take home. For exclusive pieces made in Rajasthan, try one of the five Amrapali boutiques in the city – this Rajasthani brand has made a name for itself all over the world and is stocked in Harrods.
You can’t go to Jaipur without sampling some authentic Rajasthani cuisine. Influenced by the desert landscape and historic difficulties harvesting fresh produce, lentils, beans and buttermilk feature heavily in traditional vegetarian dishes.
