The Pink City, Jaipur

The camaraderie of Bishnoism is what impressed me a lot.The spirit of standing together with sacrifice attitude is rare in this selfish world for the love of nature and wildlife. With a beautiful memory in heart, we left Bishnoi Village.We took the road to the Pink City Jaipur.

Route : Bishnoi Village Camp and Resort-Bar-Dangiyawas-Ajmer-Jaipur (340 km)

There are plenty of dhabas on highways offering lip-smacking veg food.So don’t worry about choosing any particular will even find brother-hood in their names like “Ram Dhaba”..”Sri Ram Dhaba” etc.
On our way, we entered Ajmer town and went to world famous Ajmer Dargah, sufi shrine of Moinuddin Chishti.Be ready to pay a minimum of 100 bucks for parking.Generally, I avoid crowded place where to get your way through a throng is difficult.But once a while you will enjoy this experience too.Finally, we stepped into Dargah campus through the notable Nizam Gate.

Inside Dargah Sharif two big Deghs (pots) are installed for cooking Niaz (A delicious sweet made with rice, wheat powder,ghee, nuts, safron,kewra & sugar) and this method was first introduced by King Akbar. Every year thousands of Sufi devotees from different parts of India come here for annual Sufi Fair Festival observed to mark death anniversary of sufi saint which continues for 6 day long. We had a quick lunch at city exit and started back our ride.

Around 5.30 pm we reached Anurag Villa Resort at Jaipur, one of the cleanest hotel I ever came across. Loved their hospitality and delicious food by bengali cook. But don’t expect bong fish curry as they go on veg.
Next day (5th Day) was completely a sight-seeing day. Jaipur offers many places to roam around to kill your time in a good sense. City Palace,Jantar Mantar ,Hawa Mahal are notable in the pink region of the city where everything starting from a Halwai shop to Garment shop colored in Pink.
City palace take us through the unique creativity and stunning collection of Mughal and Rajput architectural style. You will get to know many things about Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II  family history with spectacular paintings of kings and queens.

We went to Amber Fort & Palace which is 8 km from there. On the way came across quietude “Jal Mahal”(water palace) .It is located in Man Sagar lake giving an eye-catching view. At forefront of Amber Fort , beautiful Maota Lake became one’s first halting point before entering the palace through countable stairs.




Sheesh Mahal (Mirror Palace) is the most beautiful part of this huge palace.Famous Bollywood song “Pyar kiya to drna kya” for movie  ‘Mughal-E-Azam’ was shot here. Reaching this corner people are in a photography maniac.

Queen used to love shinning stars.So King made walls and ceiling of the hall with glass carved flowers and paintings to get that shinning effect always in spite of Day and Night.Lucky Wife and brilliant architecture !!





At exit of your tour, you will find shops to buy some traditional and tribal stuff of Rajasthan. I was more interested in their colorful katputli dance (doll dance) before leaving the fort.



It was 3 pm and our hungry stomachs were literally crying out loud. Rushed to “Handi” restaurant on MI Road to try their famous Laal Maas with bajre ki roti. It was a delicious lunch with a biriyani add-on.Dessert was Gajar ka halwa, their seasonal specialty.

Day 6th !! Enjoyed my return journey to Delhi.A smooth ride with beautiful landscape views on highways took a 5 hour of drive.

Many times I have been asked, “Don’t you feel bored sitting on a Bullet for so long” !! My answer is a BIG SMILE always.Might be they forgot that those who love traveling they do enjoy the mode of it. 🙂
