Bazaar Walk in the Pink City of Jaipur
   
   

What this tour is about: The bazaars of Jaipur are legendary. In 1729, Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II sent letters to famous merchant houses all over India, inviting them to settle in Jaipur. They were given prime locations, free land grants, and concessions on taxes. Locatedon important trade routes, Jaipur soon became a major centre for trade and commerce, housing a large number of artisans, craftsmen and merchants. The city’s bazaars, specialising in jewellery, textiles and crafts, became famous throughout the land.

If you want a look at the real Jaipur, come on this bazaar walk! Take a stroll with us inside the lanes of the Walled City, where the old ways of life continue uninterrupted. The streets are redolent of spices – turmeric, cinnamon, cardamom and several more. Women haggle over the price of bangles and sarees. The faithful offer prayers in little shrines at roadside corners. Vendors sell sweetmeats and spicy delicacies, the chai stalls do brisk business. Old arts and crafts still flourish in the bazaars.

The itinerary is flexible, to suit your pace. We often use a mix of walking and rickshaw to do this tour. In summer, we recommend doing this walk only in the late evening; but in winter the daytime is also excellent.

Those interested can also sample some tasty snacks and delicacies at the roadside stalls.
