And when you do all this with your better half, the fun gets doubled.
Listed below are some of the places to visit in Jaipur that make for a truly memorable romantic honeymoon tour of the city:
Located high on a hill in the town of Amer, Amber Fort is a prime tourist attraction in Jaipur. It offers panoramic views of the city. Its classy interiors, including courtyards, gates, halls and gardens apart from the magical glass palace (‘Sheesh Mahal’) offer exquisite backdrops to take pictures and spend memorable times with your partner.
Standing on the edge of the Aravali hills, Nahargarh Fort overlooks a beautiful lake, besides the city of Jaipur and the state of Rajasthan. The fort offers stunning views of the city at sunset. A glass palace and wax museum have also been opened here.
This palatial palace complex is a must-visit in any tour of Jaipur. It gives a peek into the rich cultural legacy of Rajasthan’s royalty. The palace has majestically beautiful interiors and provides great views of the Pink City.
The Jaigarh Fort is a firm and opulent structure guarding the city and offering spectacular views of the surroundings. Perched on ‘Cheel ka Tilla’ or the Hill of Eagles, the fort’s structure is made of sandstone and stands tall as a brilliant piece of architecture. It features a beautiful Persian garden and latticed windows. It’s a perfect backdrop to enjoy the beauty of this desert land with your partner, visualise a long journey ahead of life together and take pictures to capture those special memories.
Spending an evening at Chokhi Dhani is an integral part of your romantic Jaipur trip. Chokhi Dhani captures the essence of the true culture and heritage of Rajasthan. Enjoy a camel ride, folk dance, puppet show and magic show. Let the diviner predict your future by reading your palm, or better yet, get your palms decorated with mehndi. And not to forget the delicious and lavish spread of a traditional Rajasthani meal that you get pampered with. Apart from this, The LaLiT houses some of the top restaurants in Jaipur where one can try different cuisines.
Positioned amid the Man Sagar Lake, the Jal Mahal looks especially magical in the evenings. As the sun sets on the nearby Aravali Hills and the lake, the palace is lit up and its reflection is cast on the water. It creates a beautiful ambience that is perfect for couples looking to spend romantic moments together.
When in the land of royals, it is worth staying at the heritage hotels in Jaipur to experience royal luxury at its best. The city offers classiest accommodation options, prime among which is The LaLiT. It is located close to the airport and key commercial locations.
