"This is one of the beautiful place in Jaipur. The palace, the lake, garden and the city walls renders a view which is as mesmerizing as of a fairyland. Just forget about all the technological advancements for a while and be a part of these structures. You can climb the wall if you want. Its like the Great Wall of China, a miniature version of it. Opt for a guide since it will be of great use. I got a guide for Rs 100 (2$) and he showed me all the places there and even clicked my pictures."
