But even my guide was saddened by the pollution. In fact, he picked up trash as we walked around talking. Admirable! It's worth a look but just don't be... More

This is only worthy of a quick picture really. We visited late afternoon on our way back from a day out and would have been disappointed if we had for there on a special trip. It was lovely to see in the late afternoon sunshine but not worth spending any time there. Many hawkers and also a lot of rats... More

After your pics, walk doen the street to see camels. Get the man who writes your name on a grain of sand to do some work for you. Only Rs 50.

This is one of the must see place in Jaipur. It is around 10 km from the main city and you can see this place on the way to Amer fort.

Jal Mahal is a drive by experience. You can spend 15 - 20 mins there, click some pictures and grab an ice cream while you are there.

OK for a quick photo stop but nothing breathtaking. Very dirty area where you can but all sorts of cheap rubbish.

This palace in the lake is a world famous picture, but only a photo stop really. I believe you can visit it, but we never had time The area around it is poor and not in keeping with the grandeur of the palace
