I will be there this weekend Pramod. Sure, I will consider that but not sure if I would have enough time to travel 6 hrs in to and fro.

have a pleasant trip. one more thing, any conveyance that you take, do not purchase anything from where he takes you. hefty commissions they get.

I just learned from Arti's blog that the bargaining could save as much as 75%!!!

Been there numerous times myself...

Dont miss the Govind Dev Ji temple, its a must visit - its "THE" temple of Jaipur!!

Besides there are numerous forts like the Amer fort, City palace, Nahargarh fort, Jal Mahal (only from outside)... Though I have visited them all, I haven't yet blogged about them... But my personal favorite is the Amer Fort!

Travel in the ricks but beware of what they quote... and why only travel, bargain is everywhere in Jaipur!! Bargain hard or else you will be taken for a ride...

If you are spending a full day there hire a private car - that will be best and cheap too!

Check out my blog for more detailed info... I don't know if giving the link to my blog will be correct here!!

Have a nice trip MohanSmile
