Explore India's Historic Landmarks

City Palace (Residence of Jaipur Maharaja): Originally built by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh in the early 1700s, the city palace is now a tourist hotspot. The palace includes the Chandra Mahal and the Mubarak Mahal palaces as well as a museum, royal residences, courtyards, and lush landscapes. For history buffs and visitors, the palace is a total treat—acting essentially as a time capsule depicting the authentic life of Indian royalty in Rajasthan’s “Pink City”.

Hawal Mahal (Palace of Winds): Designed after the crown of the Hindu god, Krishna, the palace’s exterior is similar to a beehive or honeycomb. Before heading inside, take note of the many windows (jharokhas) and latticework which allow the breeze to roll into the palace. The landmark was built for Queens to observe anything happening in the city’s streets, since the purdah system kept women—for the most part—indoors or concealed.

Jantar Mantar (World Heritage Site): When visiting Rajasthan, we always make sure to peer into the stars from this UNESCO World Heritage site. Created by Maharaja Jai Singh II—though they appear to be straight out of a modern art museum—the structures were intended for astronomy. The instruments range from small to a towering 20 foot structure, and do everything from calculate the position of celestial bodies to displaying the time of day.
