Agra & Jaipur | The Pink City

Rise early, if you wish, and visit the Taj Mahal again, to see how the rising sun lends a warm tint to its marble face. Then journey to Jaipur, stopping en route to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Fatehpur Sikri, India’s royal ghost town. Once the capital of Emperor Akbar, it stands today as an unpopulated 16th-century city with palaces, mosques, tombs, courts and hidden passageways. Continue to Jaipur, called the Pink City for the extensive use of local pink stone on its buildings, where you check in to your lodge located in the surrounding countryside and enjoy the rest of your day at leisure.

Continue to the Anokhi Museum where you discover the art of traditional printmaking. Learn how inked blocks are laid and pressed by hand, producing a unique look and feel unmatched by any contemporary method. Next, explore the magnificent Amber Fort, one of the finest examples of a fort palace in India, built in a style similar to the richly decorated Mughal courts surrounding it. Note how architectural elements of defense and ornamentation blend seamlessly along the ramparts of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. After lunch, wander through Jaipur’s colorful local market with your guide or return to your hotel for an afternoon at leisure.

Later, proceed to the Jantar Mantar, with its collection of futuristic structures and astronomical instruments designed by Sawai Jai Singh, founder of Jaipur.
