Rajmandir was the dream of Shri Mehtab chandra Golcha who wanted a cinema hall that will cross the boundary of traditional cinema and will showcase more than just movie. He wanted a cinema hall that could hold his audience for his style and elegance. A cinema that will make his audience feel like that they are the royal guest of a palace and are invited for a complete entertainment. Rajmandir was his idea that has proud India and over the years has witnessed many movie premiers, and has become one of the most popular tourist place of Jaipur. Rajmandir is owned by Bhuramal Rajmal Surana , the reputed jewellers of Jaipur since 250 Years.
This is a traffic round about In Jaipur. The Statue Circle is not only the most famed circle but the most swarmly situated too. Almost half the Jaipur passes by it. It is the favorite lounge of Jaipur and a place for evening out, with ‘Meals on Wheels’ standing by. Strangely it acquires its name of statue circle after its figurine rather than the grand Sawai Jai Singh the founder of modern day Jaipur. His statue stands in full imperial symbols of staff and Jai Singh is made out to be holding out astrological diagrams to exemplify his proclivity for astrology. The memorial is be fitting to the great sovereign, builder and futurist. The lighting and the colorful fountains cheer up the roundabout and its surrounds.
Amar Jawan Jyoti
Situated in Vidhyut Nagar, Amar Jawan Jyoti was constructed to honor the soldiers and martyrs of Jaipur for their bravery. This place is usually flocked by locals and tourists, as this structure is beautifully lit up during the evening, showcasing a brilliant transformation of one vivid colour into another. It looks beautiful, especially when you are viewing it from Vidhan Sabha.
Lakshmi Narayan Temple

It is located south of the main city of Jaipur, at the footsteps of Moti Doongri (Pearl Hill). The construction of this temple was completed in the late 1980s and has various shrines dedicated to other deities.

Hawa Mahal, built in 1799 by Sawai Pratap Singh, was designed by Lalchand Usta. It is a five-storey structure that has more than 950 windows. The latticework was built for allowing women to watch everyday life of the city. Hawa Mahal is situated near the Johari Bazaar and provides a beautiful view of the entire Pink City.
Housing an archaeological museum, the entire structure was built with red and pink sandstone. This museum is connected with the nearby women section, which is known as ‘zenana’.
The Kanak Vrindavan is not very old but definitely an exquisitely landscaped garden with a beautifully carved temple in beige stone. It is a vast complex with terrace sites all around and intricately carved marble columns and lattices. Located in the foothills of Nahargarh hills on the way towards Amber, this complex is a popular spot for picnic and film shoots. It should be definitely visited on the way to the forts of Jaipur – Nahargarh, Jaigarh and Amber. The greenery after the monsoons transforms this whole place virtually into a paradise with Jal Mahal in the back ground.
The Amber Fort set in picturesque and rugged hills is a fascinating blend of Hindu and Mughal architecture. Constructed by Raja Man Singh I in 1592 and completed by Mirja Raja Jai Singh the fort was made in red sand stone and white marble. The rugged forbidding exterior belies an inner paradise with a beautiful fusion of art and architecture. Amber is the classic and romantic fort-palace with a magnificent aura. The interior wall of the palace depicts expressive painting scenes with carvings, precious stones and mirror settings. In the foreground is the Maota Lake providing a breathtaking vista. Built mainly for the warring enemies as a safe place, the heavily structured walls could defend the residents within the ramparts of the fort.
All means of survival and luxuries for the royal families and the people who were concerned with the functioning of this small kingdom of the Kachha was were well provided. The Rajputs who had apparently won a small structure passed on by Meena tribes, later on renovated it into the grand Amber Fort. Holding a history as old as seven centuries, this place vibrates with its legendary past. Although many of the early structures have been literally ruined but at the same time, those dating from 16th century onwards are remarkably well preserved by sincere efforts.
Nahargarh Fort is a famous tourist attraction in Jaipur that was constructed by Sawai Man Singh. The construction of this fort was completed in 1734 and was expanded in 1868. This fort has huge walls and bastions that were later renovated in 1880 by Maharaja Sawai Madho Singh, with murals and beautiful designs. Situated on the Aravalli Mountain Range, it reflects the unique fusion of Indian and European architectural styles.
The fort was named after Prince Nahar Singh, whose soul was believed to disrupt the construction of this fort. Nahargarh essentially means ‘the abode of tigers’ and houses the Madhavendra Bhavan which is one of its major attractions. This bhavan was used by the royal family during the summer season. It is still a popular picnic spot among the travellers coming to Jaipur. There is also a cafeteria and a restaurant inside the fort complex.
