Jaipur Tourism: New Trends for your Itinerary


Pink City Jaipur is one vertex of golden triangle of Indian tourism. Approximately 70 percent foreign tourists visit Jaipur out of total foreign tourists travel India in a year. It is interesting to find that what the tourists like most during their Jaipur travel. Do they like heritage or arts and crafts or the jewellery or something else?

There are interesting answers and feedbacks of foreign tourists which emphasize to change the itineraries of travel agencies and tourism companies while they plan the package of Jaipur trip for the tourists. Here are certain itineraries which should also be included in Jaipur tour along with sightseeing of Jaipur forts and monuments.

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.

Jaipur Tourism during Winters


Jaipur Ahh! Even the name itself is enough to fill your senses with delight. Extolled for its wonderful palaces, historical significance and wealthy culture, this royal and lively city of Rajasthan is nothing short of a paradise for tourists.

Essentially, Jaipur is a hot place dominated by three main seasons. The summer season persists from Mid-March till June, Monsoons continues from July to September and Winters from October to March. During summers, the temperature rises to 45°C with the minimum of 25.8°C. With such high temperature, it is not preferable to visit the place during summers.

Being located in a desert area, the climate of Jaipur is dry and hot in summers. Monsoons are sometimes preferred by the travelers who wish to see the green Jaipur.Winter season is the best time to visit Jaipur. The spectacular deserts of Rajasthan nearby Jaipur reverberates folklore of Rajputana valor and audacious nature of the princes; it has rarely seen the rain, but during winter its sand dunes exude sweet smell of its diligent inhabitants’ sweat.  The temperature touches maximum to 22°C and gets down to the extent of 5°C.

In winters, one can enjoy the regal city of Jaipur to its full. The spectacular views offered by the ancient monuments of the city fascinate the visitors. The city looks awesome in the winter evenings when it gets covered with fog. Jaipur offers rich food with lots of butter and ghee, which is best enjoyable in the winter season. To put succinctly, the best time to visit the incredible Jaipur is between the months of October to March.

To explore the city during this or upcoming winters, just plan your vacations to Jaipur and rediscover the Royal city. For special tours to Rajasthan kindly contact Rajasthan Tourism Buzz….

Udaipur’s Royal Past attracts the Tourists


Mewar Sound and Light Show

A glimpse into the royal past of Udaipur through a sound and light show is attracting tourists to Rajasthan’s famed city of lakes.

The one-hour Son et Lumiere (sound and light show) titled “Legacy of Honour” presents glimpses of 1,500 years of history of the Mewars of the state. The privately initiated project was started in last season by the Udaipur royalty to attract tourists to the city.

The narrative traces 15 centuries of history that includes the foundation of Mewar by Bappa Rawal, the ‘Johar’ (self-immolation to protect honour) of Chittor’s Rani Padmini, the story of Mughal emperor Humayun and Rani Karmavati, the story of Pannadhai who sacrificed her own son for the safety of Prince Udai Singh and the battle of Haldi Ghati.

The show ends on a contemporary note, recounting the vision of Maharana Bhagwat Singh who turned the palace into a heritage hotel more than 40 years ago and who instituted the Maharana Mewar Charitable Foundation (MMCF) Trust to both conserve Mewar’s rich heritage and develop the region.

Around 600,000 tourists, both domestic as well as foreign, visit the city every year and we feel that this show would certainly help to boost tourism in the city.

L M Wong, a tourist from US said, “It is indeed a wonderful experience. I won’t mind sitting the whole night long if history is presented in such a fascinating manner.”


 Show in Hindi: 8 pm to 9 pm (May to September)
 Show in English: 7 pm to 8 pm (October to September), 7.30 pm to 8.30 pm (April)

Duration: 60 Minutes
