Street Walk

Tourists love to walk in the streets of the old four wall city in early morning when the traffic is not on peak. “I got an opportunity to walk in the streets of Jaipur in early morning around 07:00 am during my Jaipur travel. I was wondered to see the actual heritage and architecture of Jaipur spread all around the city in each and every street. There are many old buildings, temples and ruins which are awesome. It was equally amazing for me as to experience the heritage of forts and monuments of Jaipur which was tightly scheduled by our travel agency”, Maricela Mari Hernandez fromTexassaid.

Jaipur Temples



Jaipur Temples also attract tourists. After all, Jaipur is also known as Choti Kashi because there are approximately 3500 temples in Jaipur according to the chief priest of Mandir Ghat ke Balaji, Jaipur. “I never saw these many temples together in one city in my whole life. I am surprised to see that you can find a temple at every little distance in Jaipur. What’s even more amazing to me is many of the temples are more than hundred years old. Its fascinate me that the many temples have been built in the middle of the road”, Giuseppe Malfattore fromItalysaid.

Culture and Lifestyle of Jaipur

Culture and lifestyle of Jaipur is the next itinerary which attracts foreign tourists a lot. “I am highly impressed to see that the people of Jaipur are very caring for their family, especially for the old age parents and grand parents. Though, Jaipurites are adopting western lifestyle rapidly but few of the traditions still alive in the lifestyle of Jaipurites which enthralls me. Touching the feet of every elderly person and very helping for guests touched my heart deeply. When you move on the road, though many times people gaze you as perhaps they gaze creatures of different species in a Zoo, but if you want any help, they immediately become ready to talk to you and help you upto the extremes”, said Liceria Avilo came to visit Jaipur from Switzerland.
