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.

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.

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.

When in Jaipur, Eat like Jaipurites do!

Most travelers heading to Jaipur, are aware of the fact that Rajasthani dishes are awesome, but most, don’t have a local friend or relative to tell them exactly what to try. We have made a guide just for you folks who are traveling to Jaipur, in a hope that you get to try everything we locals’ love, and why Rajasthan, is called a foodie’s paradise.
With so many upbeat cafes and restaurants, it is confusing for travelers what to eat in Jaipur. Here’s a quick guide by Jaipur Beat.

Laal Maas

lal-maas
Laal Maas

Laal maas is a delectable dish originated from Rajasthan itself, you may find it some places outside of Rajasthan too, but the authentic taste of Rajasthan is hard to copy. The dish is eaten with Indian Breads (Bajra roti, Bejad Roti, Jungli roti, Roomali roti, and whatnot).

Ghewar

ghevar
Ghewar

This delectable dessert, also available topped with malai, is something we could die for. Ghewar is the epitome of all desserts, and remain the number one dessert of choice for everyone in Rajasthan.

Mirch ke Tapore, Besan Mirch

mirchi-ke-tapore.jpg
Mirch Tapore

These savory pickles are a feat in their own. Served as something like a side and achar, these are sure to take your breath away. Mirch Tapore and Besan Mirch resembles a lot in the green chili part but tastes worlds apart. Best thing undeniably is you will probably get both in every Rajasthani thali you order.

Dal, Bati and Churma

dal baati churma
Dal, Bati and Churma

The famous trio of Rajasthani cuisine, the humblest of them all, the most eaten too we guess. There are various Bati’s in the scene, there’s a Plain Bati, a Masala Bati, a Keema bati and many more. The Churma comes in 4 or 5 varieties as well, there’s simply nothing like Churma when it comes to Rajasthani desserts.

Bajra roti, Bejad roti.

screen-shot-2018-12-03-at-1-15.jpg
Bejad Roti

These Indian Breads add up on a different level to taste when combined with the famous flavorful Rajasthani dishes. For records, Bejad roti tastes heavenly with Aloo Pyaaz sabzi and Lasaan ki chutney and is a must try.

Aloo Pyaaz ki sabji and Lasaan ki Chutney

download.jpg
Lasaan Chutney

Aloo Pyaaz ki Sabji is the real-life manifestation of heaven. Even though Lasaan ki chutney is something you can probably associate with any dish, it just adds a level of sophistication to Aloo Pyaaz’s taste. The magic of this chutney is undeniable, that’s quite the reason you’ll pretty much find it in every Rajasthani thali and being sold loose in the shops too. It may seem easy to make at home, but the authentic Rajasthani Lasaan ki chutney is just too difficult to recreate.

Kachoris, Mirch vada, Samosas

jai-1.jpg
Samosa
mirchi-bada (1).jpg
Mirchi Vada

shree-ram-namkeen-bhandar.jpg
Kachori

We believe these three should be announced as the national breakfast and evening snack of India. The Rajasthani’s love for these is very very strong. The world-famous Kota kachori is something you’ll only find in Rajasthan, while authentic Samosas and Mirchi Vadas are hard to find outside Rajasthan. We bet you have all grown up eating these three on every Sunday morning, because we, definitely did.

Bajre ki khichdi

jb-bajra.jpg
Bajre ki khichdi

Bajre is khichdi is khichdi reinvented by Rajasthanis to taste a million times better, it’s served with jaggery, white butter and loads of ghee. Bajre ki khichdi is basically a winter dish and will keep you warm all winters long, all while making your taste buds dance.

This is only half the list and the next part is coming very soon. Till then, keep exploring and keep eating. 😉

Things No One Tells You About – Jal Mahal, Jaipur

January, that time of the year when everybody be it Jaipurites or tourists always ask for this one place, Jal Mahal. Yes! Jal Mahal is in Jaipur, the capital city of Rajasthan and no, it is not built on any island like other water palaces. This 5 storied building continues to stand still in Man Sagar Lake with 4 floors immersed in water and dare anyone come near it. You can watch, behold the sight and, capture its beauty only from a distance as it is too introverted to let anybody close to it. We’re sure you must have visited this eyeful multiple of times, but let’s enlighten you today on these unknown facts about your favourite “Water Palace”.

jal; mahal_1.jpg

  • Initially, Jal Mahal welcomed the royal family with open arms and let them have a gala time here. Back then it served as a host to duck hunting parties for the royals. Years passed by and it started getting shy. And now, you can only have a look at it wondering what makes this architectural marvel stand tall in the water body.

jal-mahal-birds-5

  • Come February, and you can spot large number of migratory birds dancing here and there, enjoying the serenity of water at Jal Mahal. This once again revives the liveliness in it.

  • Chameli Bagh of Jal Mahal was a grand spectacle to watch back when beautiful dance and musical performances painted this splendor in its own colours.
  • Built in red sandstone, Jal Mahal is one of the most photographed monuments in Pink City. With tranquil waters by the side and birds sitting on top of the chattris giving it a picturesque view, tourists and localites love to spend their soothing evenings here, clicking selfies with it in the backdrop.

jal mahal

  • Catch the sight of this exquisiteness this weekend with your loved ones, but only from the outside as no one can actually go inside it to see it.

jalmahal

Most people view the architectural brilliance of Jal Mahal from across the Jaipur-Delhi Road but if you take a walk for a kilometre or two into the valley behind the lake, its true beauty will reveal.

Did we just make you love Jal Mahal even more? If yes, then we think we have sorted your weekend evening plans! 😉
