Rajasthan is the land of forts and palaces. Whether it is the Amer or Jaiagarh Fort of Jaipur, Mehrangarh Fort of Jodhpur or the royal Chittorgarh Fort or the magnificent Kumbhalgarh Fort, these forts and palaces are world famous for their ornate architecture.

These forts and palaces are worth a visit if you want to experience and know more about the royal history of the majestic Rajasthan.

Rajasthan is a fun and frolic state and so is its clothing. The traditional outfit usually comprises a colourful Bandhej or Lehariya dupatta for the women and a vibrant Bandhani turban for the men. Jaipur, being the capital of Rajasthan, is also the fashion capital of the state.

Traditional Dal Baati Churma, Ker Sangri, Gatta Curry, or the none vegetarian Lal Maans along with mouth-watering kachoris or Mirchi Bada have always been every local’s favorite.

IMG_9713.jpg

Just when Jaipurites were thinking that the city has started settling on a new food complex ie Masala Chowk at Ram Niwas Garden that hosts in itself a variety of dishes, there came “Modern Chowpatty” which is now the talk of the town.
Call it Choupati or Chow-patty, it serves the same purpose as it’s counterpart, just in a much-sophisticated way as well as with a fresh outlook.
People not only just come here to soak in the beauty of the natural and fresh air, but also to enjoy the lip-smacking snacks that are served here. The food stalls at the Modern Chowpatty serve a variety of vegetarian delights.
From Rawat ki Kachori, Chaap from Delhi, Chatpati Kolkatta Chaat, Thai, Mexican and Lebanese cuisines to tea, ice cream, juices, shakes everything is right here.

We know the people of Jaipur have an undeniable love for art and fashion, and we believe JAS serves the right purpose by showcasing the talent of Jaipurites to the world, all while giving the people of Jaipur a chance to experience jewellery differently. The choice of items and the amount of inspiration is going to be simply iconic. This is an exclusive chance for Jaipurites to experience jewellery, art, and fashion, from all over the city.

Reliving The Amazing Memories At Kanak Ghati, Jaipur.

Kanak Ghati is one place where we all, at one point of our lives has been to. In retrospect, Kanak Ghati was the no. 1 picnic spot for the school picnics as well as family picnics. The maintenance of the historical garden has been kept up to date by the government and the café in the park’s premises still serves good food. The feel of Kanak Ghati still remains the same but, the people are so caught up in their own lives’, they hardly get any time to revisit this beautiful garden.

IMG_9194.JPG

Kanak Ghati is also famously called Kanak Vrindavan, it is named so as it was constructed based on the Lord Krishna’s Vrindavan. The picturesque idols of Lord Krishna and the Gopis, surrounded by the beautiful flowers at Kanak Ghati brings alive the spirit of the playful God in the truest form.

IMG_9209.JPG

There are various scenes recreated around Kanak Ghati with idols of Lord Krishna. The construction of the garden dates back to more than 300 years when the idol of Lord Govind Dev Ji had to be shifted from Vrindavan. The temples in Kanak Ghati area were constructed to house the idol of Govind Dev Ji, but in 1716, the idol was shifted to the now called Govind Dev Ji Temple in City Palace area in Jaipur.

IMG_9178.JPG

The particular spot that Kanak Ghati is at, the valley below Nahargarh was specially chosen for its construction as it adds special grace to the majestic Nahargarh Fort, Jaigarh Fort, and the Jal Mahal Palace. If you are looking to explore the heritage of Jaipur, there’s no better place than the trio of palaces, Nahargarh, Jaigarh and Amer Palace.

IMG_9215.JPG

With very close proximity to the great palaces, Kanak Ghati is definitely a place to visit for a serene experience and the feel of Jaipur. The pools and fountains at the Ghati make sure the beauty of the Ghati remains extraordinary, and everyone in the family enjoys the getaway as much. As Jaipur is widely called, the Chotti Kashi, for the number of temples that it houses, Kanak Ghati adds another exciting layer of holiness and fun to the city of Jaipur.

IMG_9230.JPG

Kanak Ghati is a perfect full day escape from the hustle and bustle of daily lives we are so caught up in, the surrounding of Kanak Ghati make it the absolute serene garden in the city of Jaipur. The Ghati has a picturesque view of the great Aravalis and lies just below the valley of Nahargarh, there is certainly no other place with a view and location like this, in the entire world.

The event was a huge success and the horses proved their mettle in the ride. Each day, a huge 40kms were covered with a meagre 30mins lunch break. While the extraordinary ride was difficult for the riders, it was much more difficult for the horses.
