    Nice fort which can be combined with Jaigarh fort.
    We did not go in the paid fort part. There is sunset point and small eateries outside.

    As others have noted, this is a lovely and quiet spot in Jaipur. It's a bit off the tourist track. Even our tour guide hadn't been there before. The architecture is beautiful with stunning sculptures.

    Another of the attractions in City Palace. There is fantastic inner courtyard where you can see four different gates that represent four different seasons: the Peacock Gate associated with autumn, the Green Gate – with summer, the Leheriya gate with spring and finally the Rose Gate with winter. Each gate is decorated with different kinds of flowers. Apparently, Chandra Mahal is the place where the present Raja of the Jaipur resides therefore you can only visit the ground floor. All other floors are out of bounds.

    Tucked away, we decided to go here . The staff at the counter were very cordial and we were informed that till 31st October, it is on a 505 discount of entry tickets. On entering the garden, we thoroughly enjoed ourselves but it hardly takes much time to see the multi layered garden. What we found more interesting is on coming out of the garden, on the walls opposite to it, the paintings are still visible and given the fact, that there were on time tested palace walls, it mage it more special.

    This historical complex was actually a small city built of red sandstone and was founded by a 16th century Mughal Emperor (Emperor Akbar).   This was the capital of the Mughal Empire between 1570 and 1586.  He built the city to celebrate the birth of a heir but the Imperial Complex was abandoned in 1585, shortly after its completion, due to the exhaustion of the small, spring-fed lake that supplied the city with water.  Also, it is very close with the Rajputana, with which the Mughal Empire was often at war. In this complex, there is the Diwan Khana-I-Am which is the Hall of Public Audience. It consists of an extensive courtyard, enclosed by cloisters of 111 bays. the walls of the cloisters are carved with deep recesses. Emperor Akbar heard petitions impartially "but without harshness or ill will" here.
