Jaipur: Jaipur is not a city, but an experience, said a traveller after the conclusion of his journey through several seas and mountains. The fabled forts and their enchanting stories are enough to overwhelm anyone but to truly grasp the grandeur of the city, you need to travel by night. The city and its splendor come to life in the night. Here is the list of places where you can visit after the night and truly capture the true beauty of Jaipur in its complete essence.
The majestic Amber fort draped in colourful laser lights with an imposing narration of its history, told with special sounds effects, to say Amber laser show as another night tourism would be an understatement. Amber is deeply ingrained in the history of Jaipur and Rajasthan. The imposing marvel of this medieval architecture comes to its full glory in night. If you happen to be in the city, even for a day, don’t miss on this wonderful treasure.
To enjoy Jaipur in the sweltering heat is an arduous task. Crowded markets and din of horns make sightseeing a bitter experience too; therefore, visiting Hawa Mahal in the night is a mesmerising experience in itself. The decked-up wind palace welcomes tourists after dusk too. In fact, the palace looks all the more enticing at night.
Catching a glimpse of the city atop Nahargarh is akin to seeing a satellite picture of India in Diwali. Different hues of light crisscrossing with each other, making the city look like a tiny speck of a lit-up star. The experience is enthralling, to say the least, capturing the city’s captivating view after the cool breeze has settled over the searing heat is an experience that is difficult to find anywhere else in Jaipur.
A place of wonder, a sight of glowing lakes. Jal Mahal has many names and adjectives. But if you truly want to bask in the wonderful beauty of this place, then night travel here would be a rewarding experience. The reflection of many lights that adorn the place falls on the placid lake water, making it look like a river with molten gold. This piece of Jaipur’s history continues to dazzle everyone in the night.
Standing in the middle of a busy intersection, atop a carefully carved pillar and many water fountains is the imposing statue of Mahararaja Sawai Jai Singh II. The white lights beam on the statue with gull glory. From afar, it looks like a lighthouse on an island surrounded by a din of horns and cars.
So, have you decided which place you are going to visit next?
