Jantar Mantar

The Jantar Mantar was envisioned as a pursuit for finding out the unknown things in the universe. The Jantar Mantar is an altered form of the Sanskrit expression Yantras mantra implying instruments and formulae. It was built not only to confirm astronomy interpretations prepared at Jaipur, but in addition to arouse curiosity in astronomy. The observatory at Jaipur has the Samrat Yantra, the Jai Prakash Yantra, Ram Yantra and the 'complex device' includes a sun dial and a huge hemisphere on the northern wall.



Jaipur is a mesmerizing metropolitan but to make the town absorbing, it has huge palaces and other constructions that are architectural marvels. The extended crenellated fortifications shielding the town and the enormous gateways guarding the doorway to the town are all in pink. Even the women who come to the city market from their neighboring villages are dressed in pink, gorgeous yellow, red and blue. Men clothed in white dhoti and shirts bear splendid turbans on their head, which are mostly in colors of pink, red and yellow.

Jaipur, like the whole of Rajasthan, adores color and pink more habitually than not. In the midst of this uprising of colors, the City Palace of Jaipur stands tall at the heart. This imperial abode is the tallest construction in the entire compound.


Ajmer-e-Sharif Dargaah

The ultimate resting place for 'Gharib-Nawaz', Mohinuddin Chisti is situated in Ajmer. Populace of all religious convictions visits the Dargaah of Khwaja Mohinuddin Chisti. The Khwaja left for heavenly abode in 1256 AD after a 6 day prayer in isolation. These 6 days are celebrated each year as the yearly Urs, which is attended by countless pilgrims irrespective of their faith. The shrine is well thought-out to be a place of wish realization for those who pray with pious and unadulterated hearts. It is said that Emperor Akbar sought blessings for his child at the Dargaah.

The entrance to the Dargaah is all the way through the Dargaah Bazaar that guides to the inside square. The elevated entrance has skillfully imprinted silvery doors. In the square are kept two huge cauldrons with capacity of 2240 kg and 4480 kg. On particular occasions, 'Kheer' cooked in these cauldrons is dispersed amongst the pilgrims. The grave of the Sufi Saint is enclosed by a silver fence and is partly roofed with a marble screen. The descendant of Shah Jahan had built a prayer area in the Dargaah for the women devotees. The location of the Dargaah also has the tomb of Bhishti, tomb of Saint's daughter-Bibi Hafiz Jama, tomb of Shah Jahan's daughter Chimni Begum.
