Historical Monuments in Jaipur
Amber Fort
(22)
The fortified palace of Amber was the citadel of Kachhwaha until 1727, when the capital was moved to Jaipur. Successive rulers continued to go to him on important occasions seeking the blessing of the goddess of the family, Shila Devi. The citadel was founded by Man Singh I in 1592 on an old fort from the eleventh century, but the various buildings were added by Jai Singh I who was the magnificent central body. If I had to highlight the most interesting places of the fort, I'd take the Ganesh Pol, a beautiful door which connects the private rooms through the gallery above the lattices, aimed at the ladies held, solid silver door of the temple Shila Devi, the wonderful playground or walls that are full of mirrors that reflect even the smallest blade of light.
Cities in Udaipur
Udaipur
(10)
Udaipur or you might call the city of lakes and palaces. In my case I visited the so-called "City Palace", and the museum has valuable collections of miniatures and "Gardens of the Maids of Honour". Here you can find the workshops of paintings and is a great place to buy these types of souvenirs.
Castles in Jodhpur
Mehrangarh Fort
(16)
One of the best castles, fortresses and views I've seen in my life; a beautiful place in Jodhpur City. The strong castle/fortress on the mountain has a sublime view of the city. On a sunny day you will enjoy a whole lot from here; you'll see the city, with its contrast of white and blue colors and fantastic to understand why they call Jodjpur 'the blue city.' It is one of the most amazing monuments in India and certainly one of the best preserved, do not miss out, you will feel transported to another time and you can imagine the grandeur of India's cultural past.
Palaces in Jaipur
Hawa Mahal
(22)
The Hawa Mahal or Palace and the Winds, was built in the esthete 1799 for the Swai Pratap Singh, it is a whimsical structure that adds to the rich architecture of Rajasthan. The ornate facade, an emblem of the city today, is a baroque composition with staggered windows and overhanging balconies that are covered with lattice. Although these five floors are high, there is no more than one room in the background and the walls do not exceed 20 cms wide. It is built with lime mortar, and is screened in order that the ladies that were held in the harem could watch, unseen, the bustle of the streets. From afar, the Hawa Mahal, dedicated to Krishna, seems to be the Mukut (crown) which often crowns the head of the god. You can climb a winding ramp to the top.
Temples in Ranakpur
Ranakpur Jain Temple
(11)
Getting there is an arduous journey along impossible roads, but once you get there, you realize that it was really worth it. Several Jain temples rise up out of the middle of a lush and peaceful forest. Just by entering the grounds you'll find a unique spectacle. The trees have many monkeys who look at you. Once inside the temples, you can admire the numerous columns with carved images and wander through the halls where tranquility reigns.
Of Cultural Interest in Jaipur
Amber Fort Elephant Ride
(16)
When we went to the Amber fort we were offered the possibility of riding an elephant, but our rickshaw driver recommended we wait because being a tourist site the tour was not going to be very long and it would also be expensive. What we did was wait and a few miles on from a small town there is amber, and outside the city where they raise elephants, there is paint for ceremonies and festivals for tourists, in an area where you do not find any tourists and you get around the village for a price of around 200 rupees per head, nothing like the Amber fort. Elephant riding was a curious experience but I had the feeling that I was being quite cruel to this magnificent beast and would not wish to undertake this particular experience a second time for fear of causing any permanent damage.
Palaces in Jaipur
Jaipur City Palace
(11)
The City Palace in the heart of Jai Singh II has been the residence of the government since the first half of the eighteenth century. The large complex is a fusion of Rajput and Mughal architecture, with wide open public buildings of Mughal style leading to private areas. Its treasures include little statues, manuscripts, Mughal carpets, musical instruments, royal robes and weapons. Each of the seven floors of the Chandra Mahal is extravagantly decorated and is named according to that floor´s function.

Pushkar

Following the north exit of the city and only 5 or 6km. You can see sunsets real parades combined with animals. First there were monkeys and foxes, which quickly went past us right in front: After hundreds of birds of many breeds, and lastly a family of 4 of these animals but I never found out what they were named. While mom and the kids passed by, the father stood staring for a long time ... We did not move a finger. This issue was that it like a huge horse and we were scared for a while.
Nature Reserves in Bikaner
Thar Desert
(5)
The Thar Desert is a large sandy region in the northwest of India and east Pakistan. Far from the preconceived idea of ​​what may be a desert, there are wild camels roaming the Thar, herds of goats, donkeys and the people's cows. It seems as if between the people here and their way of life have had an unbreakable bond for centuries, except in those areas which have been exploited by tourism which seeks precisely that,something that is genuine. It is a pity then to find plastic bottles in the dunes, as if this were a Eurodisney that forgot to install some bins. We were on 'Safari' riding a dromedary camely, which rather proved to be a trip to see the sunset at the Thar Desert. At night we dined by starlight with entertainment including music and dance, and the next morning we were able to enjoy the sunrise in the dunes before having to return to Jaisalmer.
Historical Monuments in Jaipur
Jantar Mantar
(10)
Of the five observatories built by Sawai Jai Singh II, Jaipur is the largest one and also the best preserved. It was built between 1728 and 1734. I found a huge collection of 16 instruments, which is often described as "the most logical and realistic landscape stone". Some of the tools are still used to calculate the temperatures that will be reached in summer, the arrival date, duration and intensity of the monsoon and the possibility of floods and famines. A special highlight is the Samrat Yantra, a sundial of 23 meters high, which is expectated to forecast the annual harvest. It is here where I have experienced the most heat of any of my travels. We arrived to play the 48th .... I boiled the brain.

Jaisalmer Fort
(8)
Jaisalmer is a beautiful city located in northern India. The city, sandy-colored, is located at the entrance of the Thar Desert, an amazing place where you seem to be in the Sahara, not in India, with camels and oases. The town is dominated by an imposing fortress, which along with the rest of the city was built in the twelfth century and is part of the heritage of the world. The fort served to protect the ancient medieval city against invasions from the north. Now it is a rather messy and woefully neglected. There are numerous temples and houses, and the palace, which is the most charming place in the city. A inside the fort, people still live, and some families offer board and lodging. Entrance is free.
Lakes in Pushkar
Pushkar Lake
(7)
In this small town in India is the sacred lake. Thousands of pilgrims come here. The lake has a loudspeaker where prayers will not stop all day. The lake has many ghats, and to go to any of them, not all can be visited, you have to take your shoes off. On this site there is a scam, we were already aware of that and in the guide it commented upon it, so beware if they offer to hold a ceremony of respect for the dead, without paying, because then they want to charge you, and if not pay them is that you can cause trouble for you ... In one of the videos thereis such a character trying to convince us about the "ceremony", which we flatly refuse. Otherwise the site is spectacular.

Jaisalmer

Situated in western Rajhastan, Jaisalmer is a city where tourists do not tend to venture, but it is a spectacular city, known as the city of the desert. It is a place great to spend a few days and experience desert life, if you are lucky enough you will see remote villages in the desert. The best area to stay is certainly within the fort, in the old city, although the lonely planet recommended not to stay because of the water problems, but I can tell you, there is no problem. The fort is a tremendous place to stay, in addition to its spectacular views there is also a famous desert festival
Temples in Udaipur
Jagdish Temple
(5)
The Jagdish Temple is the most important temple in the city and a fascinating place of worship flanked by elephants and riders. A steep staircase leads to the temple. Inside, there's an air of true devotion. The devotees present their offerings and pray, led by the Master. Taking photos inside is not allowed. It was originally built by Maharana Jagat Singh I in 1651 AD, this fascinating place of worship enshrines a black stone image of Lord Vishnuji. If you're lucky, you could find yourself surprised with live music or the sound of bells, for the prayer of the faithful. This is a Jain temple. Jainism is a very important religion in Rajhastan. Its main principle is non-violence, its devotees are unable to kill any living organism. In India, you will see Jains strolling, taking good care not to kill any little creature, using some small brushes to avoid accidentally stepping on a living being.
Palaces in Jaipur
Jal Mahal
(12)
The Jal Mahal is situated 8 miles north of Jaipur, the pink city of Rajasthan. This palace can be listed under one of the advantages of visiting India during the monsoon season. Why? Because only when it rains abundantly does the Man Sagar lake fill up and the Jal Mahal seems to float on the water. This beautiful palace was built in the 18th century under the orders of Madho Singh I. The architects and builders of the monument took as reference the spectacular Lake Palace of Udaipur. The result was more than satisfactory.
Palaces in Udaipur
Jag Mandir Palace
(8)
Jag Mandir is a beautiful palace situated in the city of Udaipur, a city also known as the Oriental Venice due to the fact that it is partially built on water. The palace has three floors and is built with yellow stone and white marble. Construction began in the 17th Century and was commissioned by Maharana Karan Singh. Singh Rajput´s mother, helped the prince to leave the country with his wife and two children. The palace was completed around 1650, after the death of Karan Singh. Changes were made by successive owners, and it is very well preserved. The place where the prince was staying Gul Mahal is called, is the best decorated, the most important point of the visit. There is Islamic style architecture, to please the prince Karan Singh. There was also a mosque so that he could pray. There is a patio, with black and white tiles, worth a visit.

Patwon Ki Haveli
(2)
The largest and most elaborate haveli is Patwon Ki haveli (mansion of brocade merchants), which was constructed in the year 1805 by Guman Chand Patwa, a merchant and banker who had 300 malls between Afghanistan and China. The works of this 5-story building, constructed for his 5 children, lasted over 50 years. It is located in a cul de sac, behind a door with bows. The entire outside is artistically sculpted, and 60 latticed balconies seem more like stone. Inside there are still ancient murals. Outside I took a photo with the man who must have won the award to have the world´s longest mustache .
