JAIPUR

Marie Claire (South Africa) - - TRAVEL -

With the walls of its old town dressed in pinks, Jaipur has earned its ‘Pink City’ so­bri­quet. Don’t miss the in­tri­cate Hawa Ma­hal, Palace of the Winds, dot­ted with count­less trel­lised win­dows through which the many wives of the ma­hara­jahs could peer out at the streets with­out be­ing seen. Along­side the palace, savour the peace of the el­e­gant Shri Go­vard­han Nath Ji tem­ple and its walk­ways bor­dered by g trees.

Be­yond this lies the fre­netic world of the bazaars, lled with saris, rib­bons and jew­ellery, Jaipur be­ing the global cap­i­tal of ne stones. Stop for a drink at the Pal­la­dio Bar in the gar­dens of the Ho­tel Narain Ni­was Palace with its magni cent, Mogul-style veranda. For ne din­ing, noth­ing beats Niros, an In­dian-style brasserie – the best place to sam­ple tra­di­tional North In­dian fare.
