Day 1 - Jaipur

Today arrive Jaipur and transfer to your hotel. The capital of Rajasthan Jaipur - popularly known as the Pink City as the Pink sandstone was used to construct the buildings in Old walled city. Jaipur owes its name, its foundation and it\'s planning to the Great warrior astronomer Maharaja Jai Singh II (1699 - 1744 AD). Jaipur (City of Victory) was founded by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II in 1727. It is the only city in the world symbolizing the nine divisions of the Universe through nine rectangular sectors sub-dividing it. The architect who formalized the city\'s plans on the Shilpa Shastra, the epic Hindu treatise on architecture, mixed it with the sublimity of the Mughal and Jain influences of those times. The city was painted pink in 1853 in honour of the visit by Prince Albert. Except for the busy traffic of bicycles, cars and buses, little seems to have changed. Overnight at Hotel

Day 2 - Jaipur

After breakfast proceed for full day city tour of Jaipur - visiting Amer Fort located at a distance of 11 kilometers from Jaipur and was the old fort of the Kachhwaha clan of Amber, which used to be the capital, till it was moved to Jaipur. The fort is built with white marble and red sandstone and looks even more attractive because of the Maota Lake in the foreground. The fort in itself is a beautiful sight to behold but as one looks on the fort with its clear reflection on the lake in the front; one cannot help but wonder if it is a dream or a beautiful illusion. An elephant [Subject to availability/alternatively by jeep] will spare you the trouble of reaching up to the fortress. Once on top, stroll through the sprawling complex of courtyards and halls; Later visit the City of Jaipur. Among the highlights to be seen while touring Jaipur include the City Palace, which is an overwhelming complex of exquisite palaces, gardens and courtyards, decorative art and carved doorways. The palace museum houses collections of rare manuscripts, armory, costumes, carpets and miniature paintings. Walk to the adjacent Jantar Mantar or Astronomical Observatory made by the Maharaja of Jaipur, built in 1726 and is one of the five such astronomical wonders built by Sawai Jai Singh and makes accurate predictions even to this day. Jaipur is a shopper\'s paradise. Most of the bazaars are in old city with wide range of things to buy, from jewelry (precious and semi-precious stones) to textiles to handicrafts and antique. No doubt for an avid shopper \'Jaipur\' is the choicest of the cities. Overnight at Hotel

Day 3 - Jaipur,Jodhpur

After breakfast drive to Jodhpur enroute visit Ajmer & Pushkar. Ajmer was founded in the 11th century by Chauhan ruler Ajaipal and is dominated by the Taragarh fort. It is a major centre for Muslim pilgrims during the fast of Ramzan on account of being home to the Dargah of Sufi saint Khwaja Moin-ud-din Chishti. Seven pilgrimages to Ajmer are supposed to equal one to Mecca. Ajmer has some superb examples of early Muslim architecture and a lively bazaar and is located conveniently close to Pushkar. Visit the Dargah (tomb) of Khwaja Moin-ud-din Chishti, the Ana Sagar Lake. Later drive to Pushkar; at its heart is one of India\'s most sacred lakes. There are 52 ghats around the lake, and numerous temples. The Brahma temple, especially, attracts pilgrims all year round. Apart from its religious significance, Pushkar is known for its Cattle and Camel fair held every year in the month of Kartik (October/November), which attracts visitors in their thousands. You can also witness and participate in the evening prayer meetings in the temples. Being a religious town, alcohol and non-vegetarian food are taboo. Pushkar separated from Ajmer by Nag Pahar, the snake mountain. This traveller-friendly town clings to the side of the small Pushkar Lake with its many bathing ghats and temples. For Hindus, Pushkar is a very important pilgrimage centre and you\'ll see plenty of Sadhus (individuals on a spiritual search). Pushkar boasts temples, the most famous is the Brahma Temple, said to be one of the few temples in the world dedicated to this deity. Later continue to drive to Jodhpur; Arrive to the Blue City - Jodhpur and transfer to your hotel. An oasis in the arid Thar Desert, Jodhpur is the second largest city in the state of Rajasthan.

This structure just outside the city walls once acted as a reservoir that controlled the entire supply of water to the arid city. Thera are whole varieties of temples and shrines surrounding the lake. Visit the famous Havelis (mansions) known for their frescoes. Jaisalmer\'s strategic position on the camel terrain route bought it great wealth. The merchants grew prosperous and commissioned great havelis, or mansions, to flaunt their ever-growing status in society. Made of local golden-yellow sand stone and wood, some of the havelis are still in excellent condition. The most elaborate and magnificent of all the Jaisalmer havelis is the Patwaon Ki Haveli. Five Jain brothers built the Haveli between 1800 and 1860. Salim Singh Ki Haveli and Nathmal Ki Haveli are the other two havelis that are opened to visitors. Built in 1156 by the Bhatti ruler, Jaisal, THE FORT here stands atop the 80 m high Trikuta hill. 3 walls and features 99 bastions surround the fort. Over the centuries, the golden sand stone fortress witnessed many battles between the Bhatti Rajput\'s, the Mughals and the Rathore\'s of Jodhpur. Within the fort complex lie the beautifully carved Jain Temples built between the 12th and 15th centuries. The Maharawals (rulers) of Jaisalmer were devout Hindus but were tolerant of Jainism, and encouraged art and religion. There are 7 temples in the complex - Chandraprabhu, Parasnath, Shitalnath, Sambhavnath, Shantinath, Kunthunath and Rikhabdev Temple. The temples are all connected by a series of corridors and walkways. Close by is the Gyan Bhandar, a library founded in 1500 A.D. This house is priceless ancient manuscripts and other exhibits like astrological charts, besides the Jain equivalent of the Christian Shroud of Turin. Later visit the Bada Bagh, 6 km north of Jaisalmer, is a fertile oasis with mango trees and a huge old dam. Above the gardens are royal Chhatris (memorials) with finely carved ceilings and equestrian statues of former rulers. Amar Sagar, 5 km northwest, was once a formal garden with a pleasure palace of Amar Singh on the banks of a lake which dries up in the summer. Nearby is a beautifully carved Jain temple. Lodhurva, 15 km northwest of Jaisalmer, was the ancient capital before the move to Jaisalmer. It contains some very beautifully carved Jain temples which are worth a visit. Also visit the abandoned and cursed village Kuldhara, 15 Km. west of Jaisalmer a city in western Rajasthan lies the ruins of a village which was called Kuldhara. The first sight of Kuldhara village, more a town actually, sends one imagination running to the time it may have been inhabited and a well-planned settlement of 84 villages of Paliwal Brahmins a prosperous community. But one night in 1825 all the people in Kuldhara vanished in dark. In the evening, proceed for the excursion to Sam Sand dunes.
