City Palace

The City Palace is an imposing blend of traditional Rajput and Mughal architecture. It is a vast palace complex occupying nearly one-seventh of the Pink City. It was originally built by Maharaja Jai Singh II. The complex is divided into a series of courtyards, sprawling gardens and buildings. It is home to several palatial structures like the Chandra Mahal (home to the present Maharajah of Jaipur), Mubarak Mahal (housing a textile museum), Diwan-e-Khas (or Hall of private audience), the Diwan-e-Aam (or Hall of public audience) and the gateway - Ridhi Sidhi Pol (with four small doorways decorated with motifs depicting the four seasons). Another integral part of the palace complex is the Hawa Mahal, standing away from the main complex.
It is 5 kms away from the hotel.

Jantar Mantar

The biggest of five astronomical observatories built by Maharaja Jai Singh during the period 1727-1734 in north India, it is located very close to the City Palace. The observatory consists of fourteen major geometric devices (or yantra in Hindi) for measuring time, predicting eclipses, tracking stars in their orbits, ascertaining the declinations of planets, and determining the celestial altitudes etc. Guides provide fascinating explanations of how each of the instruments work, and how through watching, recording and meticulous calculation, Jai Singh measured time by the place the sun's shadow fell on the huge sundials and charted the annual progress through the zodiac. Each construction has a specific purpose, such as calculating eclipses. The most striking instrument is the sundial, with its 27m-high gnomon; the shadow this casts moves upto 4m per hour.
It is 6 kms away from the hotel.

Hawa Mahal

Jaipur's most distinctive landmark, Hawa Mahal is a remarkable, delicately honey-combed pink-sandstone structure. The five-storey building was constructed in 1799 by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh to enable ladies of the royal household to watch the life and processions of the city. It was an extension of the ‘zenana’ (women’s) chamber. Its purpose was to allow royal ladies to observe everyday life in the street below without being seen. It is a five storey high red sandstone structure complete with over 950 windows.
It is 6 kms away from the hotel.

Amber Fort

This massive fort-palace complex built in a hybrid Hindu-Muslim style dates back to Raja Man Singh and was the royal palace of the Kachwahas from c. 1600 to 1727. The fort is named after the town of Amber, in turn named after the goddess Amba. The main sights within the fort include the Sheesh Mahal, adorned with thousands of mirror tiles on the walls and ceiling.
It is 16 kms away from the hotel.

Jaigarh Fort

Never conquered in battle, this was considered the strongest of the three forts in the area. It is best known as the site of the world's largest cannon, the Jaivana, which was test-fired only once and according to legend, despite using only half the designed amount of gunpowder, the cannonball flew 35 km! A better reason to visit the fort, though, is the scenic gardens at the other end and the spectacular views over Amber Fort and the hills around.
It is 24 kms away from the hotel.

Nahargarh Fort

Built in 1734 and extended in 1868, sturdy Nahargarh is notable primarily for excellent views over Man Sagar lake and the vast sprawl of Jaipur. The fort also houses the (relatively) compact Madhavendra Bhawan palace. Portions of the movie Rang De Basanti were shot at this fort. There are some interesting furnished rooms in the fort and glorious views - it's a popular picnic spot on weekends, and the perfect place to catch the sunset.
It is 26 kms away from the hotel.

Jal Mahal

The “Palace on Water” is on the way to Sisodia Rani Garden. A Rajput style palace, it sits in the center of the Man Sagar Lake. The lake is often dry in the summer but winter monsoons frequently turn it into a beautiful lake filled with water hyacinths.
It is 11 kms away from the hotel.
