Jaipur, known by various names – *the pink city*, *the city of palaces* and more – famous for its Indo-European styled palaces and forts and world-class heritage and museums. Any art & history lover will be over-whelmed in Jaipur, but there are always hidden gems in a city filled with so many places to see. So, I’m presenting you guys with some off-beaten things to do and see in Jaipur.
#Birla Mandir (Temple)
Jaipur is incredibly beautiful and is home to various architectural marvel and one of them is – *Birla Mandir*, a Hindu Temple of Lord Narayan & Goddess Laxmi is built of pure white marble and is another major landmark of Jaipur city. The temple is located on an elevated ground at the base of Moti Dungari hill in Rajasthan. Even if you’re not religious, I recommend you to spare some time for this architectural masterpiece.
Chowki Dhani which portrays the essence of Rajasthan in a true sense, and if your trip doesn’t include places like Udaipur, Jodhpur then pay this place a little outside of the city a visit. The place has the exact look alike like the culture and soul of Rajasthan – the village like structure, the paintings, the camel, the unique & beautiful Heena designs, folk dance and much more.
The Chowki Dhani opens at 5h00 till 11h00 to showcase its charm and the entry charge is nominal in which the food and all the events are covered. The authentic dining area – with sitting on the floor with small tables in front of you, and people are ready to serve you a bunch of food items till you are full – is an all-new experience. The dishes are the typical Rajasthani dishes with authentic flavor and is served in abundance 🙂
We spent our entire evening there – enjoyed some folk dance, got our hands colored with unique Heena designs, enjoyed the bonfire.
Have you visited any of these places apart from all the renowned spots?? Do share your experience with me 🙂
