History of Jaipur
In the 17th century, when the Maratha Empire had expanded almost all over India and the Sultanate of the Mughal Sultanate was steadily weakening, it was a time when there was political upheaval all over India, at that time the Amer the princely state of Rajputana gradually- Slowly it was emerging as a big force.
The princely state of Amer was ruled by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh and during his reign, the Maharaja expanded Amer to miles. Due to such a large state, there was a problem in running the Amer princely state in front of Sawai Jai Singh. And because of this Jaipur city came into existence as the new capital of Amer.
There are differences even today among historians regarding the place where the first foundation of the construction of Jaipur was laid. Some historians believe that the foundation for the construction of this city was laid near Shikar Hodi, located near Talkatora. Some believe that there is a place near Brahmapuri and Amer “Yagyayupa” near which construction of this city started.
But all historians believe about Chandramahal, Bazaar, and Teen Chaupar, all these places were built together. The Marathas were constantly expanding their empire at that time and Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh constructed boundary walls around the city to avoid the Maratha invasion and to ensure the safety of the entire city.
Seven strong doors were also constructed to enter the city. Historians also believe that when the construction of this city started, at that time it was the first city in the country that was being built with complete planning. At the time of the creation of the city of Jaipur, its construction was started keeping in mind the growing population of Amer and the water problem.
Construction of the city began in 1727 and it took about 4 years to build the main places of the city. Jaipur was divided into nine blocks, in which two buildings were built with state buildings and palaces. This entire city has been built based on ancient Indian craftsmanship.
The chief architect of this city was Vidyadhar Bhattacharya, a Bengali Brahmin. Vidyadhar Bhattacharya was just an accounting clerk in the Amber court, but he was very interested in architecture. Impressed by Vidyadhar Bhattacharya, Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh entrusted the entire responsibility of planning the construction of this city.
The palace, Havelis, housing of common citizens, gardens and highways have been constructed in a very planned manner in the city. Architecture and geometry have been taken care of at the time of city construction. To protect the city, the western hill Nahargarh Fort was constructed, factories were built for making weapons in Jaigarh Fort. The largest Jayaban cannon of that time is still located in the Jaigad Fort.
The city of Jaipur is divided into nine residential blocks, these blocks were called Quartets. Ranivas, Rajmahal, Jantar-Mantar, Govinddevji’s temple was built in the largest quartet, the remaining quartet built Havelis, factories, and housing for common citizens.
Sawai Jai Singh considered the people of Amer as his family, so the basic needs of common citizens were taken care of during the construction of the city, such as clear water, small-scale factories, gardens and collecting rainwater. Everything was taken care of at the time of the construction of the city.
Ramanivas Bagh, Hawa Mahal, Isarlat and educational institutions were built at different times in Jaipur and according to the city architecture. Sawai Jai Singh gave great encouragement to handicraft, education, song music, and employment in Jaipur during his reign. Spread over two hundred square kilometres, Jaipur offers an unmatched example of architecture and architecture.

Is carried on the remains of the fort. After Sawai Mansingh, for 150 years in the Amber Fort, different kings of the Kachhwaha Rajput dynasty improved and expanded the Amber Fort. The Amer Fort is a marvellous example of Hindu architectural style, the walls of the fort have been enlarged in terms of security and many large doors have been built to enter the fort.
Red sandstone and marble have been used in the construction of the fort and this grand fort has been constructed on four levels of the mountain. There are huge courtyards in all four parts of the fort. In which respectively, Diwan-e-Aam, Divan-e-Khas, Sheesh-Mahal and Sukh Niwas are called.
Artificial water stream was constructed to get relief from the scorching heat in Sukh Niwas, water flowed from the water stream during the summer season, due to which the atmosphere of Sukh Niwas remained cool.
A secret tunnel was constructed to go from the fort of Amer to the fort of Jaigarh, this tunnel still works well today. Tourists visiting Amer can still go to Jaigad Fort from this tunnel. The Amber Fort has been constructed in such a way that its image is seen in the Mawtha Lake, built just below the fort. Click here for complete travel guide of Amer Fort

The elephant village, located just 4 km from Amer, was established by the Rajasthan government in 2010 to promote tourism in Jaipur. One of the objectives of the local administration was to provide a natural habitat to a large and magnificent animal like an elephant, as well as to provide proper care and provide proper shelter and food facilities to the families taking care of them.
All the elephants in the Elephant Village have been brought here from South India because Rajasthan is not a natural habitat for elephants and their residents are not residents either. The journey period of Elephant Village can be around 3-4 hours and to make your journey memorable, many programs are done such as colouring the elephant, watching them bathing in the natural habitat and feeding.
Currently, elephant riding is not promoted that much, but if the tourist wants, he can get an opportunity to ride the elephant for a while. Meeting and interacting with the family caring for elephants can be a different experience and it also proves very helpful for tourists to get to know elephants closely. If you have not been able to ride the elephant at Amber Fort in any way, then riding the elephant in the natural surroundings of Elephant Village will be a different experience for you.
I will post a separate post for complete information related to the elephant walking in the village. Click here for complete travel guide of Elephant Village

Almost all the tourists visiting Jaipur do not know anything about this place. It is located just a short distance from the Amber Fort. Panna Meena Ka Kund This kund is a unique piece of Hindu architectural art.
This kund has amazingly constructed stairs, which is famous for its octagonal edges and verandahs. The three-sided staircase built in the kund appears to be similar to the “Chand Bawdi” in Abhaneri, and the “Hada Rani ki Bawdi”. To give beauty to the Panna Meena Kund, small umbrellas and shrines have been built on its edges.
In ancient times, this pool was used for storing water. The history of Panna Meena Kund is not clearly known, but it is believed that during the rule of Maharaja Jai Singh, a person named Panna Meena contributed very significantly in the construction of this kund, which pleased the Maharaja, the name of this kund is called Panna. A belief is also associated with the fall of the Meena rulers.
It is said that it was almost impossible to defeat the Meenas because Meena kept the arms with him at all times but at the time of Diwali all the Meenas took their weapons and came to bathe in this pool. The address of this secret was accidentally disclosed to a Kachwaha Rajput by a drummer. After that when the Meenas took their weapons off and entered the Kunda at the time of Deepawali, the Rajputs attacked and defeated the Meenas.
Presently Panna Meena Kund has been the victim of neglect of the administration, due to which the plaster of walls is being broken due to dampness in many parts of it.

Then the priests of Vrindavan hid the deity (statue) of Lord Krishna (Govindadeva) in another palace to save it from being destroyed by Aurangzeb.

From that time onwards Suraj Mahal came to be known as Govinddevji. Click here for Complete information of Govinddev Ji Temple

Jantar Mantar - Jaipur
Sawai Jai Singh II, the founder of Jaipur, had a great interest in astronomy and was also a great astronomer himself. During his reign, Sawai Jai Singh II built five astronomical observatories. These five observatories were constructed in Jaipur, Delhi, Ujjain, Banaras, and Mathura respectively with the help of the great astronomers of the country, the first of which the observatory was built in Ujjain which was called “Emperor Yantra”.
The second observatory constructed in Delhi is called Jantar Mantar. The observatory at Jaipur was built after the construction of these two observatories. At present, only two observatories exist, one remains in Connaught Palace in Delhi, also called Jantar Mantar. Jantar Mantar, built-in Jaipur is the largest of all the rest of the observatory and because of this, it took the most time to build.
The construction of this observatory was started by Sawai Jai Singh II in 1724 and the construction of this observatory continued till 1734. Sawai Jai Singh sent his messengers to the countries of the whole world for the construction of this observatory and got manuscripts related to astronomy and got them translated. 14 astronomical counting instruments have been built at Jantar in Jaipur. These instruments were used to measure the exact time, know the position of planets, predict eclipses and get accurate information about monsoon.
Even today, the local almanack of Jaipur is published based on the calculations of instruments made at Jantar Mantar. Local astronomers predict the rain coming to and around Jaipur by the “wind perception” process. “Samrat Yantra” at Jantar Mantar This is a huge sun clock which is also the highest yantra here, its height is 90 feet.

Hawa Mahal is the most favourite and most famous tourist destination of Jaipur and its full credit should be given to the unique confluence of Hindu Rajput craftsmanship and Mughal style. The magnificent palace that looks like this Rajmukut was built in 1799 by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh.
The architect of the construction of this palace was entrusted to the architect Lal Chand Usta. Hawa Mahal is a five-story building whose width decreases after each floor, the width of the top floor is only one and a half feet. The height of this five-story building is 50 feet from the ground and the width of the three floors above it is equal to that of a room and there is an open courtyard in the back of both the lower floors.
At that time, the ladies of the royal family wore long and besieged skirts, so the hoofs were constructed instead of the stairs to climb the top two floors of the Hawa Mahal so that there would not be any inconvenience for going upstairs. The biggest feature of Hawamahal is the jharokhas made in it and the number of jharokhas made in this palace.
The total number of vents in Hawa Mahal is 953, which is many times more than the vents made in any big palace and these 953 jharokhas increase the level of beauty of this air palace. The root cause of the creation of these shackles is believed to be the “curtain practice” prevalent at that time, all the women of the royal family followed this social system strictly at that time.
The women of the royal family were able to see the bustle of Jaipur market from these vents, the routine of ordinary citizens and the tableaux that came out from here, so these vents were constructed. Apart from this, cool air always flows from these vents and due to this, the atmosphere of this palace remains cool and air-conditioned even during the very hot summer.
Another feature of Hawa Mahal is that a person sitting inside it can monitor the activities going on outside, but it is impossible to see any person sitting inside from outside.

Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II Museum Jaipur
All the rulers of the Kachhwaha Rajput dynasty of Amer served as the Mansabdars of the Mughals until the 16th and 18th centuries and during this time all the Rajput kings of Amber and Jaipur got the opportunity to work in different parts of the country.
During their tours, the kings of Amer started collecting material associated with paintings, deities, weapons, and antiquities of different places and regions. Shortly after, a rare collection of sorts was developed in the palaces of Amer and Jaipur.
In the 18th century, during his reign, Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II established 34 factories for the protection of handicrafts and other artists in the state to run the state system smoothly and named all those factories according to different departments. Some factories were also built to make art materials related to handicrafts, due to this, the handicrafts sector of Jaipur grew a lot.
The Mughals and the British also presented a lot of gifts to the Rajput rulers of Jaipur from time to time, even today these gifts adorn the royal family. Sawai Mansingh II established this invaluable heritage inside the City Palace in 1959 as an art museum and opened it for general public viewing.
Brigadier Bhavani Singh, the successor of Sawai Mansingh II, renamed the museum as the “Sawai Mansingh II Museum” in 1972 and part of the City Palace and its personal collection of weapons, wagons, tapirs, antiquities, carpets, and textiles were added to this museum. Gave it as a gift.
