Day 6 - Jaipur

DAY 6:

Woke up to a nice sunny day! Although the Ramgarh Lodge was nice we decided to switch hotels for our second and final night in Jaipur. We are staying at the Holiday Inn, for it’s only fifteen minutes away from the Airport, and we have an early morning flight yet again to our next city, Agra.

For our second day in Jaipur, our clan has decided to visit the well known City Palace Museum. It was built between 1729-1732, and has collections of carriages, armaments, miniature manuscripts and paintings, palanquins, howdahs, bejeweled ceremonial swords and daggers, as well as the world’s largest silver jars in which were used to transport holy Ganga water. The City Palace is a unique complex of several palaces, gardens, temples, and pavilions. It is also a current royal residence, and is located in the north east area of Jaipur.

After our City Palace adventure, we were starved so we looked along M.I. Road for somewhere to eat. Stopped at Nero’s. Very welcoming place with great food. Ordered the chicken korma. It was deelish!

Continuing our walk down M.I. Road, for some shopping! Went to the Johari Bazaar and bought some jewelry. Also hit up the Ramganj Bazaar and checked out the traditional footwear.

Later on for supper, we decided to take a break from the spicy food of India, and just ordered some Pizza Hut from our hotel. There is also a café in the hotel called the Palms, so that will be handy for an early morning breakfast and coffee before we head out to Agra!
