With the advent of social media, travelling has become all the more enjoyable than it already was, as you can capture yourself in a beautiful picturesque location and instantly share it with the world. Most of us cannot wait to upload a photo of ourselves next to a monument of historical significance and then let the reactions and comments pour in. One location that would make for some great Instagram albums is Jaipur.
Rajasthan’s pink city is often famed for its world-renowned marble crafts and intricate artistry but apart from taking back home a bagful of purchased sculptures and art, you can explore intricately carved temples, gorgeous palaces and stunning corridors that highlight unique murals that Jaipur boasts of. If you are unsure of where to go, here is a detailed guide for you.
You cannot come to Jaipur and not visit this palace, which is made of red and pink sandstone. The Hawa Mahal, which lies close to the City Palace, is a magnificent sight. It is well-known for its stunning and one-of-a-kind architecture. In the honeycomb architecture of this palace, 953 windows called jharokhas are elegantly blended.

Architecture at Birla Temple
Birla Temple’s architectural splendour is one of the main attractions that attract tourists and visitors from all over the world.

Blue Room or Chhavi Niwas
Chhavi Niwas (also known as the Blue Parlour), a private room at the Jaipur City Palace, is a gorgeous space. It is located on the 5th floor and offers panoramic views of the palace. It is one of the best places to take pictures because of the blue colour that adds to the aura of the room.
