Jantar Mantar was used to see time of the day
and to know location of the stars
So it will not be wrong to say that it is mix of astrology & astronomy
This time i am on 5th floor of Hawa Mahal.
On my front i can see Jantar Mantar
Besides that we have city palace, on the front side is Hawa Mahal road
These monuments can be covered very well in 3 hours
Let’s now go and see that window that looks beautiful in night from outside
Someone has told me that night view of Hawa Mahal
is too good in night
so tonight i will come to see how it looks in night from outside
Right now i am walking towards Galtaji temple
You will need to walk to come to this place leaving your vehicle on top
because this is steep- vehicle can skip
Let’s walk down
Temple priest has just told me that people come to
Surya temple to see sunset and sunrise
Jaipur city is so beautiful looking- mountains on one side
and complete Jaipur city is visible
from Surya temple
But i can’t watch sunset here because i am leaving for Delhi now
Bye Bye Jaipur – Surya Temple was the last tourist
destination i wanted to cover under visa2explore – Travel to Jaipur.
