- Jal Mahal
The city that might not boast of water bodies so much, houses the most magnificent water palaces in the world – Jal Mahal, located in the middle of the Man Sagar lake. The palace and the lake around it were renovated and enlarged in the 18th century by Maharaja Jai Singh II of Amber and it shines like a golden gem in the middle of blue lake at night.
- Statue Circle
One of the most famous landmarks and circles of Jaipur, the white ‘Statue’ at the circle is of the founder of Jaipur – Sawai Jai Singh II. This pristine white structure looks even more royal at night with a beaming crowd of locals storming around it for walk in the garden, to grab a scoop of ice-cream or have a cup of the famous coffee at Statue Circle.
- Amber Fort
Once the capital of the state of Rajasthan, Amber boasts of the spectacular beauty – the Amer fort. Situated 10 km away from Jaipur on Jaipur-New Delhi road, the sight of the lit-up Amer fort is arresting at night and unmissable for the one who is visiting Jaipur for the first time or nth time.
- Jawahar Circle
Said to be the biggest circular park in Asia developed on the highway, Jawahar Circle is located on the Jawaharlal Nehru Marg. The circle is surrounded by various kiosks but the highlight is a musical fountain that changes lights and splashes the beholders with a happy refreshing feel.
Hawa meaning wind and mahal meaning palace, Hawamahal aka Palace of the Winds is a pink sandstone palace that represents in its pure glory the essence of pink city. When its 953 windows called jharokhas are lit up in varied hues at night, the drive around the walled city becomes an illuminated memory forever.
- Amar Jawan Jyoti
Drenched in the spirit of pride, Amar Jawan Jyoti evokes patriotism at just one sight. Glorifying the selfless sacrifice of soldiers from the state of Rajasthan, this place has a tranquil aura around it, that you can soak into while sitting on the stairs and watching the traffic pass by.
