If you want to travel to a place that is replete with modern comforts yet rich in deeply steeped in cultural heritage, Jaipur should probably top your bucket list. Thoroughly cloaked in the culture of Rajasthan, the Pink City is a beautiful mixture of history and modernity, that is sure to delight the traveller in you. The colours and vigour of the desert capital attract not just Indians, but also many foreign nationals year after year.

The erstwhile Rajas and Maharajas have left behind traditions of luxury and opulence which the city of Jaipur still breathes. Even in today’s date, the best artisans, the best of Rajasthani jewellery, the tastiest of snacks and a rich architectural heritage awaits you in Jaipur. Meet up with the descendants of these Maharajas, most of whom still live royalty style or watch the Elephant Parade, which sees the long lost grandeur of royalty come back to life.

A region of mixed religions and ethnicity, Jaipur celebrates a number of festivals throughout the year, and among this multiplicity, the Gangaur Festival is the one celebrated most enthusiastically. Any discussion on a destination is incomplete without a mention of food and you must take heart when here because the famous Dal Baati Churma is definitely going to sweep you off your feet. The Jaipuri Handicrafts are also a national favourite and you must make sure you pick up some Bandhani Fabrics, Block Printed materials, Stone Sculptures and Carvings along with Silver Semi Precious Stone Jewellery when here.

To begin your cultural tour in Jaipur by visiting ChokhiDhani might be a good idea, but rest assured there is a lot more to the culture of this hospitable city that welcomes all its tourists with open arms. You can take a look at Jaipur packages for more fun filled trips in and around Jaipur.
