A long weekend awaits to plan a trip to Jaipur | Jaipur Beat

The universe has been kind to all of us and given us two long weekends back-to-back. Yes, we are talking about the Holi long weekend (Sat, Sun, Mon-27th, 28th & 29th March) and the Good Friday long (2nd, 3rd, & 4th April) weekend. And in case your bosses are generous and cool enough to grant you 31st & 1st April days of extra leaves then you just have the whole week off!

It doesn’t get better than this right?
Well, it does if you plan a getaway for these long weekends to none other than Jaipur aka Pink City. And just to substantiate our above hypothesis, allow us to give you some mind-blowing reasons for you to plan your getaway to our favorite city, Jaipur.

The magnificent and spectacular forts and palaces

The city is filled with forts and places that draw the attention of tourists from all over the world. The forts are well known over the globe for their royal architecture, culture, age-old charm, and grandeur. Forts that we would recommend you to visit and experience the royalty of Rajasthan are:

 • Amber Palace – The famous Amer Fort is one of the most visited forts in Rajasthan and is also registered as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Overlooking the Maota lake, Amber Fort is known for its aesthetical style elements. Also, for all the history buffs out there – do you know that Amer was the capital of the state before Jaipur?

Nahargarh Fort – What comes to your mind when it comes to enjoying an eagle’s eye view of Jaipur’s jaw-dropping skyline?
Definitely, it is Nahargarh! One of the favourite spots for Jaipurites.
Situated in the Aravalli mountains, Nahargarh which means “adobe of tigers” is a majestic and spectacular fort. You can enjoy cycling and trekking at this fort and can also visit the Nahargarh biological park. Built in 1734 during the reign of Sawai Jai Singh (1698-1740), the extensive water systems of Nahargarh are one of the most significant features of the fort. So get your walking shoe on and one can take a walk through Water Heritage to uncover history to architecture, and see the history come alive.

Hawa Mahal – This five-storey building continues to be the major attraction of all those travelling to the Pink City. The unique attraction is its 953 windows which were actually constructed to give a cool breeze to the royal ladies that watched processions from the inside of the Wind Palace.

If this architectural wonder intrigues you more, check this out: https://jaipurbeat.com/2018/12/11/things-no-one-tells-you-hawa-mahal-jaipur/

Jal Mahal – Located in the middle of Man Sagar Lake, this 5 storied building continues to stand still in Man Sagar Lake with 4 floors immersed in water.
Back then it was used for royal duck shooting parties. With tranquil waters by the side and birds sitting on top of the chattris makes for a picturesque view. One can enjoy camel or horse safari and also shop for the local handicrafts from the temporary bazaars set near this place.

City Palace – The City Palace, Jaipur is one of the most admired and finest attractions among the places to visit in the Pink City. With an organized layout of large courtyards, perfectly manicured gardens, and magnificent mahals, the palace is still home to the royal family of Jaipur. Apart from its magical architecture, the palace is also known for its beautiful gates.
While planning a trip to Jaipur, make sure you reserve a day to visit the corridors of the City Palace and live a day like the royals!

Jawahar Circle – The newest edition in the list is the ninth gate of Jaipur, known as ‘Patrika Gate’. It not only keeps heritage value but also the aesthetic value due to its modern architecture mingled with traditional style. The poly-chromatic patterns and vibrant surroundings make this gate one of a kind. The vibrant colours and mesmerizing architecture are always admired and make this an Instagram-worthy place as no one can leave without capturing its beauty.

And the wait for Social Symphony Awards is finally over – 4th September 2020

Jaipur Beat is proud to announce the “Social Symphony Awards” an initiative to honour such inspiring brands and individuals of Jaipur, who have leveraged their greatest strength of adopting digitalization, who have observed the new trends and adapted with their dynamic and creative decision making in these harsh times.


To create a symphony among different industries, brands, and creators, Jaipur Beat emerged with an idea to recognize those who were not shaken by the pandemic crisis and made a remarkable comeback through the medium of social media

This pandemic has taken a toll on everyone mentally and economically but there were some who chose to come out stronger than ever battling the odds in the uncertain times. In these exceedingly tough times for businesses, where launches were getting deferred, movie theatres, malls, restaurants & cafes were downing shutters, and travel was grinding to a halt, Social Symphony Awards decided to reward the brands and creators who took this as an extraordinary opportunity to take over social media and adapt to the new digital era.

Jaipur’s rich cultural heritage is displayed in the traditions, customs, lifestyle, art and architecture of this place. The way of life in Jaipur is a mix of legacy and modernity which unfolds the glorious past and the contemporary lifestyle in which social media plays an integral part.

It was launched on 8th August with a vision to see Social Symphony Awards as one of the most authentic and respected awards for being the pioneer and the only-cross industry award in Jaipur. An in-depth scientific analysis was conducted to choose the best out of best in each category.

We have unveiled 12 categories and 82 nominees to celebrate the most creative content on social media across the city.

Social Symphony Awards was possible because of the enormous effort of our high profile and distinguished jury members from varying backgrounds including media professionals, food connoisseurs, educationists, authors, photographers, influencers, creative directors and entrepreneurs. Real-time panel discussions were conducted with statistical data where they deliberated over the nominations and considerately selected the winner based on the criteria of the category. The discussions were high-spirited brimming with healthy discussions and valuable outputs.

Witness a grand celebration of the finest talent, fans and enthusiasts from across the city as we bring alive the experience of the Awards to you on any device of your choice.

The Social Symphony Awards is all set to go live on 4th September at 6:30pm on the official Facebook page of ‘Jaipur Beat’.

Seasonal Fruit Nutrition: You should not miss on!

Mahatma Gandhi rightly said, “It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.” This saying stands so true especially in these times of Covid-19 for ‘jaan hai toh jahan hai’! And thankfully, we Jaipurities are blessed for Jaipur has a bundle of local fruits available that are high on nutrition and vitamins and a great way to boost up your immunity; thus, letting you fight all kinds of viruses. Jaipur is also called ‘Gulaabi Nagari’ for all the good reasons. It is a city that is home to fruits of all colours, thus making our refrigerators and plates colourful.

Ever wondered why doctors and nutritionists always insist on eating seasonal fruits and vegetables? We at Jaipur Beat bring to you the fruitilicious nutrition you should munch on and can locally source in the Pink City – Jaipur! In this blog, we tell you the local fruits you should grab on from the city and why:

  • Mangoes: Widely known as the ‘king’ of fruits; mango is the king in terms of the health benefits it offers too. Starting from prevention to serious illness like cancer and anaemia; mangoes aid in weight loss, help in building the immune system and are a rich source of Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Vitamin B6 and other B Vitamins, Potassium, Magnesium, Copper and healthy fibre.

 

  • Muskmelons: This potassium-rich fruit is widely available in the streets of Jaipur and is good for eyesight, is packed with skin-friendly collagen, it also improves hair growth, regulates blood pressure, promotes digestion and is a good source of Vitamin A and C – enough to support your bodies daily requirements.

 

  • Jamun (Blackberries): Rich source of iron and Vitamin C, Pink City thellas (stalls) are filled with these sweet and sour delicacies. This tasty summer fruit replenishes your body with high energy levels and is an excellent source of carbohydrates, protein, magnesium, potassium and few phytochemicals. Ayurveda strongly recommends this berry for treating various conditions related to heart, arthritis, asthma, stomach pain, bowel spasm, flatulence and dysentery.

  • Phalse (Falsa): Tangy and sweet in taste phalsa (falsa or Grewia Asiatica), when eaten with a little salt and black pepper or in the form of juice, acts as a natural cooling agent for our bodies. This fruit helps in treating pain, diarrhoea, rheumatism, and arthritis. It also relieves vaginal burning and other urinary troubles has an antibiotic effect and relieves skin inflammations. Luckily available in Jaipur, consume it at least once a week.

 

  • Bel (Wood Apple): This sweet aromatic natural healing fruit is again locally available in Jaipur during summers and makes for a great juicy retreat. A boaster for your digestion, bel helps in preventing and curing several stomach ailments like constipation, diarrhoea, indigestion, ulcer, piles. It is also a natural detoxifying agent and thus, prevents kidney and liver dysfunctions.

 

  • Coconut water: It is like having 5 medicines or just one coconut water – that’s the strength it holds. With very little fat and 90% water, coconut water is supremely rich in magnesium, potassium, manganese, sodium, vitamin C, protein and fibre too. So after a sweaty day, if you wish to rehydrate, have chilled coconut water (place it in the fridge in the morning and have it by evening) to reduce your anxieties and stress.

  • Litchis: Primarily composed of water and carbs, litchis are super juicy-licious and a great way to tantalize your taste buds. Summer is at its peak and having a bunch of these cool summer fruit is the best way to deal with the heat. Litchi like other citrus fruits is a good source of vitamin C, B-complex vitamins, potassium and copper.

All these summery fruits are very watery in nature in order to keep our bodies rejuvenated and hydrated in this scorching heat. Apart from this, eating food out of season makes little sense economically, environmentally, nutritionally and you are also benefiting the society in large especially local farmers whose livelihoods depend on the local produce they do. Thus, phal khao, sehat banao aur garmi se raahat pao!
