Diwali is just 2 days away and we know you are busy with cleaning, shopping, getting houses renovated/painted, or organizing Diwali parties 😉 In this busy schedule of yours, pause for a second and think what makes Diwali so special. New clothes, a nip in the air, the faint smell of crackers, noise and excitement all around, and …lights !! We all light up our houses on Diwali in different ways, but every city has its own way of lighting itself up every year. Among all these cities, Jaipur shines in a way that it feels like it’s truly welcoming Lord Rama after his 14 years of exile and dancing in joy and festivity. So let’s look at few places in Jaipur that you must not miss to see this Diwali 🙂
- Johri Bazaar
Johri bazaar, the market that is famous all over the world for its scintillating jewellery, especially made and found in Jaipur, is seen gleaming with lights on Diwali.
- World Trade ParkNot a newbie anymore, World Trade Park stands as one of the most posh places in Jaipur to shop, eat, watch movies, hang out and what not. However, it comes as no surprise that WTP wraps itself in the spirits of Diwali in its own elite and glittering way.
- Trimurti CircleThe circle dedicated to the martyrs of police force, is decorated subtly with flowers and is not to be missed as it is one of the most famous landmarks of pink city.
- Motisons JewellersHaving one of the fanciest buildings in Jaipur, Motisons Jewellers leave no stone unturned when it comes to the festival of lights. Just like their gorgeous jewellery and interesting building, their Diwali lighting also stands out and makes a lot of heads turn !
- Amer fortAlthough Amer fort is well lit all year round and stands as a symbol of pride and history in Jaipur, it oozes a different level of aura altogether on Diwali with its yellow sandstone shining brighter and looking like a golden castle in pink city.
6. Raja Park
An always crowded area of Jaipur, because of its versatility as it has the power to provide anything to a person ranging from a basic panipuri to a perfect wedding dress, Raja Park gives the feel of a beaming street lit on the festival of Diwali.
7. Albert Hall Museum
The State museum of Rajasthan is lit in all the colors that one can only wish to see in a rainbow and even the pigeons that love to rest here are compelled to sit down and admire this exquisite architecture.
8. GT Bazaar
The gem of Malviya Nagar for all the foodies and shopaholics, GT Bazaar is lit up and glowing like a thousand stars are falling from the sky to bless the earth this Diwali.
So keep all things aside, and take out some time to soak into the actual essence of Diwali – the festival of lights 🙂
