India Tours Jaipur
The city of Jaipur reflects a clever amalgamation of the Rajput and Mughal styles, which has given this city a unique character. Being close to Delhi and Agra, and the fact that its rulers were powerful members of the Mughal durbar (court), ensured that its rulers kept the special Mughal touches of filigreeing marble and sandstone alive. Fresco painting and inlaid mirror work has also been used extensively to create a fantasy world of color and richness in the midst of bleak surroundings.
The Hawa Mahal, which forms an essential part of the heritage Jaipur is a fine example of the Rajput architecture, though influences of Mughal style of architecture is also there. It has intricate carvings and perfect symmetry on the front while the backside is just a mass of pillars and passages. A part of the palace is a museum that houses a collection of rare manuscripts, weapons, Mughal carpets, costumes, and Rajasthani miniatures. Another place which must be included in the heritage Jaipur is the famous City Palace, built by Maharaja Jai Singh II of the Kachhwaha clan of Rajputs.
