A cornerstone of India’s Golden Triangle, the chaotic and vivid streets of Jaipur will overwhelm you if you let them. But dodge the buzzing motorbikes, cart-pushing labourers and pesky auto rickshaws and take a step back to observe the orderly and intoxicating madness of Jaipur’s bazaar.
You will find plenty of tranquillity within the walls of the city’s impressive historic buildings. Step inside the City Palace in the centre of the old city and let the soft, pinkish tones wash over you – it is called the Pink City after all. The remarkable Rajasthani architecture is stunning, and your guide will explain its history as the royal residence.
