City Palace is a beautiful building which was constructed by Sawai Jai Singh II. There are two monuments inside the City Palace, Chandra Mahal, and Mubarak Mahal. The names of these two palaces are very beautiful as the meaning of the first one is the palace of the moon and the meaning of Mubarak Mahal is the palace of celebration. The rulers of old times were very creative in keeping the names of the monuments. There was the logic behind doing everything. City Palace is known for historic architecture and the museum. Chandra Mahal husband converted into a museum where there are some exclusive pieces of handicrafts. These Handicrafts were built long ago.
The Nahargarh Fort was built on the Aravali Ranges. It is very difficult to construct a strong and beautiful monument and constructing it on a mountain range makes it more difficult. Try to imagine how the laborers could have managed to take the raw material at that top of the mountain on such rugged land. Still, they managed to who built such a strong and beautiful Fort which is standing as an inspiration for all of us. There is a Jaipur Wax Museum in the fort. It is worth watching. If you happen to reach Nahargarh Fort in the evening, you can have a great view of the city of Jaipur. The purpose of building this part was to watch the activities of the enemy or the attacker. Nahargarh Fort is one of the monuments which permits you to you have a picnic with your family. It is such a switch on for fun-loving people.
Hawa Mahal is the favorite of many. There are 5 floors in the building with 953 windows. There were two purposes of building these many windows. The first one was too to arrange for the ventilation and the second purpose was a concern for women who were supposed to be under the vine and were not allowed to you see anything. With the help of the windows, they were capable of watching all the activities taking place out of the palace. These 2 were the noble causes of building the Hawa Mahal. It was a big challenge to build a monument like this. It is made up of red sandstone and it's very strong.
Jantar Mantar is the invention of science. Rose built during the period of Maharaja Jai Singh II. Jantar Mantar observatory has the largest sundial in the world. The dial is the word used for the face of the clock. Sundial means an instrument which can tell the time accurately E with the position of the Sun. It is a great combination of architecture, astronomy, and creativity. There are four observatories called Jantar Mantar. But the one in Jaipur is on the list of UNESCO world heritage sites.
