Trip to Jaipur – Another Colourful Page Of My Life

After months of Yes/No, finally or say suddenly we (Me and Babita) decided to go for a trip to Jaipur -The Pink City. It was due from a long time and we tried to utilize our Christmas holidays and now I’ll say that it was a good decision. It was a special trip for many other reasons also. Jaipur is the future Sasural of my Margdarshak and home of my Guru who used to teach me ART of Living :). We left for Jaipur on Saturday morning from Gurgaon station by Gareeb Rath and reached Jaipur around 2.00 Pm. I was impressed by Gareeb Rath again. It was just Just 2 minute late by its schedule time, can you believe it? Coming back on the track, since we didn’t get any rooms online due to holiday crowd at Jaipur, we decided we’ll see something once we reach Jaipur and it was our first mission to get the place for our Night stay. We hired an Auto Rickshaw and he took us too few Hotels which was way below the quality and very highly priced. We left an inquiry to Damu Hotel (didn’t remember the hotel name exactly but it was something like that) and they had rooms available for 26th only. We decided to give it a try and room was better compare to other hotels we saw and it was in our Budget also.

City Palace - Jaipur
We booked two rooms in hotel and left for Jaipur exploration. There was a huge jam on the way to City Palace and we reached around 4.30 there and lost all our hopes that the palace may be closed by now but our good luck it was still open and we buy two tickets and entered in City Palace to see our bright past.

It’s so beautiful from inside and everything is so colorful there. Also, there was an exhibition of paintings and other art works in a few halls in the palace, the works were so very artistically done. We got to see the Darbar kinda place where the ministers gather to look upon any issues or to make any judgments. It was more like the court of yester years.

Babita in city Palace
We left for some famous temple which is located near to city palace and after that Babita decided to do some shopping in the pink city, seeing the huge traffic we decided that we’ll explore local markets by walking around.

We reached back to our hotel by 9:00 Pm and started watching Big Boss final. We discussed our plan for tomorrow and after that Babita left for sleep in her room. We got ready by 8.00 in the morning and hired an Auto rickshaw for 400 rupees. He took us to the statue chowk and showed us a famous cinema hall from outside which was build by Film Star Dharmendra

After that we reached Birla temple, Museum inside the temple, then famous Ganesh Ji mandir which is very near to Birla temple. We left for a museum from there and saw pretty old and nice things there.

We left for Amber fort after that and stopped to see Hawa Mahal and Jal Mahal.

We reached Amber fort and hired a guide for RS 200. He told us some interesting facts about amber fort and showed every place with funny description.

(If I’ll keep telling you everything in this descriptive style then I think this post will not finished ever: D let’s keep it brief) We left for Jantar Mantar from there and decided to get back to Gurgaon by 27th night. We went to Sindhi Camp bus stand and booked two tickets for Gurgaon in a Volvo bus which costs us around 800. We were supposed to reach Gurgaon ( Iffco Chowk) by 8 in the evening but we met with huge jam on highway and reached Gurgaon around 11.15 Pm. Bobs got an Auto rickshaw from there and thankfully one PCR gave me lift to Bus Stand. Now bobs will explain her journey in her words.

Babita Tiwari “As the train entered in the city limits of Jaipur, a sense of familiarity took hold of me.. Jaipur has warmed my heart.. Unlike the unreal and picture postcard look of the city on had passed theory there was hell lot of crowd and traffic.. The pavement had cracks at places and dirt o sidewalks.. But the slight chaos and imperfection was comfortingly real.. People are nice. This place is paradise for shopping if you posses food barging skills.. Foods are damn spicy and avoid going there in peak season. My Co-traveler was religious and dedicated devotee of all Gods. He didn’t miss a single mandir.. and moreover it fun being with him. We had a nice time together.” Babita Tiwari
