Jaipur rickshaw tour: Your cycle-rickshaw adventure starts at Albert Hall, the oldest museum in the city and an awe-inspiring model of Indo-Saracenic architecture. We’ll then lead you out into the crowded alleys of Jaipur to see more of the city’s most famous sites.
Along the way, you’ll get a history lesson and hear goose-bumpy stories, old legends, and lost myths that shape life in Jaipur. Your Jaipur tour will lead you to Bapu Bazaar, the centre of Meenakari jewellery, which is a local specialty of Rajasthan. Dive in to the array of colourful trinkets, curios, bandhani, and block-printed textiles, then rest up over a cup of Indian masala tea that will revive your senses.
From there, you’ll proceed to Hawa Mahal, a five-storied marvel made of pink sandstone and uniquely carved with 953 windows. The windows, known as jharokhas, were built to provide the royal queens and princesses with a view of everyday life happening beyond the palace walls. Keep your camera handy for pictures of this Jaipur landmark. We’ll then finish off our Jaipur adventure, but before we do, we’ll give you a shot at cycling the Rickshaw yourself! How do you think you would do cycling through the city streets? I
