- Chand Baori Stepwell
Stepwells are wells in which the water can be reached by descending a set of crisscross steps. Chand Baori is one of the oldest stepwells and the most attractive landmark in Rajasthan. I still can’t believe we didn’t go here. Although it is 95 km from Jaipur the stepwell is a must visit when in Jaipur. Experience and photograph traditional India at its best. The stepwell has a gorgeous architecture and women in colorful sari’s carrying early morning graceful vases full of water on their heads up and down the stairs.
- Amber Fort
In the hill country surrounding Jaipur, you’ll find the fairy-tale majesty of Amber Fort. It is impressive to see the painted elephants enter the fort through the huge gateway. Wander through the endless courtyards and over the beautiful terraces, marvel at the city views and completely indulge in the stylish Indian architecture.
- Bar Palladio
Fantasy allows us to depart our reality and slip into our imagination. Bar Palladio Jaipur is that very place: a candle-lit wonderland, a floating world. Bar Palladio Jaipur was born with a simple intent: present classic Italian cuisine in a beautiful setting, create an atmosphere of magic, a sense of surprise. Inspired by the iconic Caffé Florian and Harry’s Bar in Venice. The bar owned by an Italian couple is an artwork in itself, a must visit!

- The City Palace
In the heart of Jaipur you’ll find the colorful City Palace. My favorite Jaipur ‘attraction’. The sophisticated complex is a mix of Rajasthani and Mogul architecture. It is full of courtyards, flowering gardens, elegant buildings and the most gorgeous facades I have ever seen. A dreamy peacock door, a bright green Ganesha door and dreamy patterned other beauties.
- The Palace of Wind
The Hawa Mahal translated as the Palace of the Wind is a gorgeous pink façade of 953 windows and balconies spread over five floors. It’s called the Palace of Wind because of the height and the slender architecture the wind blows right through the building. This gave the Maharadja harem wives some desperate wanted cool air during hot summer days.
- Wander through Jaipur’s pink beauty
Walk through the labyrinth of chaotic, dusty and smelly streets, filled with pink houses and shops. Visit small temples full of babas with large turbans, monkey’s and chanting women in colourful saris sitting next to each other. It’s a magical sight.
- Royal Haveli
The Royal Heritage Haveli is your best choice when it comes down to unique boutique hotels and gastronomical hospitality in Rajasthan’s capital Jaipur. This magical family owned property will satisfy the creative soul and is a colorful oasis of peace in a buzzing hot city.
- Carpets and rugs
Jaipur is known for its handicrafts and especially the carpets they do very well. See how the beautiful patterned carpets are made and buy a gorgeous original souvenir for at home.
- Coffee fix
It isn’t always easy to find a descent coffee in India. For the best coffee in Jaipur bring a visit to Curious Life Coffee Roasters at P 25, Yudhisyhir Marg, C Scheme, Jaipur.

Taruveda is a store, spa and bistro at The Tree House Resort. It is a fine place for lunch offering the best of world cuisines in a beautiful decorated space. 1 st Floor, Sunraj Villa, 2 Mysore House, Jacob Road, Civil lines, Jaipur
