Day 2: Jaipur Sightseeing and Delhi by Train (B,L,D)
With a 8am start time, you'll head off to visit the Amber Fort. Situated on a ridge just outside Jaipur City, the image of the Amber Fort is beautifully reflected in the lake below. After a brief stop at Jal Mahal for photo, the rajput style "Water Palace" is the next stop. This monument sits in the center of the Man Sarobar lake. The lake is often dry in the summer but winter monsoons frequently turn it into a beautiful lake filled with water hyacinths.
You'll have time for another photo stop around noon at the Hawa Mahal, or Palace of the Winds. Built in 1799 A.D., the Hawa Mahal is a major Rajput landmark; this five-story building sits along the main street of the old city with pink sandstone, honeycombed windows.
