Jaipur, famously known as the pink city is the capital of the Indian state of Rajasthan.
Just like other cities in Rajasthan, it has its own set of castles, visible from the main city as well as at a short drive.
The city’s beauty lies in its castles, simplicity, and of course the general pink paint theme in majority of the buildings.
But, apart from these things, the city is also an international and national place of interest for its monuments. Here are the best photo spots to visit if you’re exploring the city:
Amber palace is present on the outskirts of the city of Jaipur and greets people entering the city with its wide walls.
The castle’s massive size sprawls across the entire hill and has historic gardens and lakes in front.
This is the perfect and most opportunistic place for tourists looking for a photoshoot, Jaipur style. You can even enjoy and capture spectacular the light and sound show from the walls.
One of the most awesome things about Jaipur is its ‘floating’ castle. Also known as the Jal Mahal (Water Fort), it is surrounded on all the sides by the water of the lake it seems to be semi-immersed or floating in.
You cannot enter the castle, but you might be able to get a boat ride in the lake and sitting by the lake is just as serene. If you’re looking for photo spots, this is a must for your Jaipur trip.
Although the pink city has much more to offer, but its castles are its main attraction.
The Hawa Mahal captures its royal aura better and although it is in the middle of the town, it is photogenic no matter the time of day or year.
You can get different views of this monument from within, surrounding shops as well as cafes nearby!
