Within the city the main focus is the huge palace complex, still home to the Maharaja and Sawai Jai Singh’s Jantar Mantar observatory.

Amber was the capital of the Kachhwaha Raj-puts from 1037 until the Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh founded Jaipur in 1727, but the majestic fort-palace was not begun until about 1600. The building was added to by successive Rajput rulers; however, the architecture dis-plays many Mughal influences in addition to the traditional Rajput designs. Whilst visiting the palace you will be able to explore the intricate chambers and hallways, the maze of passages and courtyards and witness the won-derful views of the Jal Mahal water palace below.

Dinner & overnight in hotel.

En route to Amber, there will be a brief photo stop at the ‘Hawa Mahal’, known as the Palace of Winds. Built in 1799, it is a remarkable facade structure, constructed of red sandstone overlooking one of the main streets, spe-cifically meant for the ladies of the Royal family, who would sit behind the trellis screens and comfortably ob-serve the activities on the streets without being seen.

Proceed to city of Jaipur, known as the ‘Pink City’ of Rajasthan, since so many of its buildings are painted in a lovely pink hue. The City Palace, with its museum, is still the home of the Maharaja of Jaipur. On show are an ex-tensive collection of art, carpets, textiles and weapons, all beautifully preserved.

Across from the City Palace is the observatory or Jantar Mantar, a curious collection of sculptures each of which has a specific purpose such as measuring the position of the stars, altitudes and calculating eclipses. It is the best-preserved example of the original five observatories built by Jai Singh, the founder of Jaipur.

The award-winning Anokhi museum, set up in the early 2000s, works closely with local craftsmen from in and around Jaipur to preserve the craft of hand block printing. Your tour of the museum includes an introduction to hand block printing and a short demonstration as how to hand-print your own scarf. The museum, set in a heritage building, with galleries scattered around different floors, currently requires guests to climb steep stairways. The museum is supported by the creators of the Anokhi clothing brand, which sells hand-block print garments through dedicated retail outlets across India.

The Anokhi museum is closed on Mondays and during local holidays. Every summer the museum is closed between mid-May and mid-July for maintenance. The museum’s design, regrettably, is not suitable for wheelchair users.
