Jaipur is first well planned city in India,only the walled city is Pink color.
Its capital of Rajasthan state.Famous for Palaces,
forts,beautiful gardens&shopping for jewellery.258 km from Delhi.Delhi to Jaipur highway is 2 way toll road &well maintained.
Many places to see,usually visters will go onedya trip to Jaipur,but
my suggestion is spare minimum 2 days,can see all places in &around Jaipur.Ofcourse to feel Rajasthan one can spend as much as days they want:).
Jaipur &Amber were ruled by Kachhwaha rulers,they were great collectors fo art,music ,literature.
They went to war as Generals&Governors of the Mughal Emperors.
One can see all over Jaipur ,there arstictic work,Amber palace was beautiful,walls all painting ,using vegetabl dye,that is natural colors.
Best season to visit,September to March.Winder temp 22C to 8C,SUMMER 45.C TO 26c.
Portion of the Archer, frieze in glazed tiles from the palace of Dareios I at Susa.
Exhumed by Mons and Madame Dienlafoy in 1885,and reconstructed in the Louvre in Paris.
The archers wear the quipment of Royal body-guard ,which was known by the name of "THE TEN THOUSAND" or "The immortals",because there were more nor less than this number.Men of the Susa
Contingent are shown in this panal.
This impressive Ganesh Pol entrance to inner courtyard of Palace.Can see entrance archs,doors painting using vegetabel dye.
