Jaipur

Also known as the “Pink City,” Jaipur bursts with royal appeal. Check out the Old City, known for the its many palaces and pink sandstone fortresses — hence the nickname. Stroll through Hawa Mahal, Amer Fort and Jantar Mantar — just to name a few.

Get your camera ready and put your walking shoes on for a visit to the Jama Masjid.
