Rajasthan’s Pink City is awash with historic royal palaces, courtyard gardens and museums. Stroll through the beautiful Hawa Mahal, and explore the Amer Fort – all while staying at one of these top hotels in Jaipur.

Rajasthan means “Land of the Kings”, and nowhere epitomises this more than its capital Jaipur, which has long been home to royalty. In fact, it was designed by Maharaja Jai Singh to suit his every whim. It’s certainly one of the most beautiful places to visit in northwest India.
