Don't have much time in Jaipur but still want to experience the best of the city? This one and a half hour walking tour with an English speaking guide will take you to the most significant cultural areas of this vivid city and allow you to get a better look at its culture and locals. From where you'll meet your guide, your first destination is the Hawa Mahal, an incredible edifice built in red and pink sandstone and designed with breathtaking architectural style. This is followed by a visit to a century old sword shop where you'll see ancient weaponry and blades, and you'll get to study these old armaments. You'll also visit a local antique market full of charming items and even 150 year old cameras—definitely a flea market aficionado's dream. Then you'll head to Bhatton Ki Gali, a location where the ancient royal priests resided. The area is also full of old houses, giving you a glimpse into the architectural style of the time period. Then you head to the City Palace Chokh, and here you can get that perfect panoramic photograph of the city for your memories. Then you head to a famous UNESCO World Heritage site, the Jantar Mantar, a collection of astronomical instruments, including a gigantic, gnomon that's been designed parallel to the Earth's axis. Don't forget to have a look at the old market as you go, see some museums, and the old buildings that Jaipur is so famous for. You then head to the Swargsuli Tower, rising head and shoulders above other the historic buildings, and the tallest of the historical sites in the city. You'll learn more about local religion and spirituality with a visit to the Shiva Temple and the Krishna Temple, which has been maintained by the same family for 8 generations and counting. Your tour finally ends at the retro-styled surroundings of the Golcha Cinema.
