  1. yeah it is true…n this post was awsome AND today frm this post i came to knw Aunty’s cafe and Sanjay omlet so thanx for the post….
    i am living in jaipur since 4 yrs but I never get bored frm this city…it is such a beautifull city….I LOVE JAIPUR…. 🙂 :* 🙂

  2. while most of these are true.. who the hell parks their car in a no-parking these days? probably the article was written years ago when there was no fine and/or the cars were not immediately towed from the no-parking zones… !!!

    • Mr. Deepak.
      Thanks a lot for taking out time to read our blog 🙂
      You are right that traffic police is working hard to tow the vehicles when parked on road but this blog is new and fresh and not written ages ago. You can go and have a look on the lane opposite Pink square mall and you will surely get your answer.

  3. no mention about kites.
    caught by police on Ajmeri Gate Once for rash driving.
    5 Days lightning on Diwali.
    Murli pan bhandar wale ka paan too xD
    Lal kothi ki famous tea point “banna ji”

  4. Hahaha….so true….n i really love dis city…amazing n world’s best city.. jo kahin ni hota vo humare jpr m hota h….jpr ki baat hi alg h😍

  5. Who can forget link road k golgappe or madhur ras bhandar ka ganne ka juice or ram Chandra ki kulfi or govind dev JI ka mandir or lmb ke ghevar

  7. Great article!! Brings back fond memories but at the same time reminds me that I have been out of my Jaipur for a long enough time to see a few new things that have come up after I left… but a great list that could get better once you add kites (Sankrant) and the Diwali lights in the walled city. And while Aunty, Pandit and Sanjay have featured in this list Mamu’s is absent and that could be because that was ‘the’ place when I was in Jaipur!!

  8. rest all is true :P, and yes have used the JLN as race track, gorged on pyaaz ki kachori, omlett, stuck at traffic jam , hang around gaurav tower for hours (Uske piche gyan vihar dairy ya gt ke pass ki coffee), EP me movie, JKK (jawahar kala kendra) ki coffee

    man wat days 🙂 , after living away from your home for almost 6 years – u do miss it once in a while

  9. Oh I miss jaipur so so so so much…….the college days that I spent there were the best days of my life…..love u jaipur…..

  10. tired best to prove jaipurites but must also Moti Doongri Ganesh Mandir, Radha Goviind Dev Ji,Tarkeshwar Ji, Raj Rajeshwarji, Jantar Mantar, City Palace, Amer Shila Devi Mandir and much more

    Best Regards

  12. Wow!!!! I have been not living in Jaipur since last 36yrs. But i visit sometimes every 2 weeks and many times go there just for lunch from Delhi since my whole clan is in Jaipur. Nobody can dare to say i am not a Jaipurite. In my heart, soul and mind i am totally a Jaipur wali. Oh how i miss being there everyday!!!!
    Once you add all the other features reminded by people, this site will be so interesting that people will watch it again and again, specially the ones who are living away. Thanks a ton.

  13. Waooo.. Tremendous work.. Too proud to be a Jaipurite… No place is better than dis, take my words… A true Jaipur wala who has experienced these places and delicacies would know how majestic this place is.

  14. Yaad aa gaya wo gujra jamana khushboo bini bini wo jaipur ka khazana i realy miss jaipur i stay in surat but my soul is in jaipur

    • Mediocre ? Pain ? what is it that you are so unhappy about ? Please read the blog once again and compare it with the one you are referring to. Our blog is specifically meant for people who have lived and are living in Jaipur, of all age groups and varied interests. Which facts do you find in our blog as incorrect, and what made you think that this blog is mediocre and “cows, cows everywhere” strikes a chord with people ? We are open to criticism but criticising just for sake of one is not something which is appreciated. This is our largest blog till date and only thing that made it happen was that the content and connection with our audience was spot on.

    • i agree, it is like trying to project that jaipur is either undeveloped or so much stereo typical , which is not true, jaipur is much above all these things and looks like this post was actually written for previous decade

      • Hello Mr. Kunal. Still liking the coffee from Statue Circle or Pyaaz Ki Kachori is not stereo typical or undeveloped, it is a fact and there is nothing to be ashamed of. Firstly, A tourist visiting Jaipur will not want to see the modern Jaipur, they would want to see the heritage and essence of pink city which we have talked about here. Secondly, Yes it hasn’t been written for just the current generation, it is meant for the older generations who appreciate the development of the city but still cherish their old walled city.

  15. Awesome collection….. but few things should also be added like… Amer fort, kanak ghati, Govind dev ji, Moti doongri Ganesh ji, kites, teej festival (teej ki sawari), Maharani and Maharaja collage, mini buses of jaipur, khajane walon ka rasta and so many other things which makes jaipur THE BEST.
    its almost seven years i left jaipur… after reading your collection … saari yaadein taaza ho gai… Thank u..

    missing u jaipur… 🙂

  16. reminded me the beautiful time spent there… Thanks.. 🙂 Govind Dev ji temple, City Palace, chaudha rasta (for books), bagariya bhawan, 22 godaam circle, posh buildings in civil lines.. also could be added..
