16 Top-Rated Attractions & Places to Visit in Jaipur

Written by Joni Sweet Updated Mar 24, 2023

No trip to India is complete without spending time in Jaipur. Affectionately nicknamed "The Pink City" for the blushing color of its historic buildings, Jaipur is a princely wonderland of culture and heritage.

The best places to visit in Jaipur showcase the royalty of Rajasthan — and you don't have to walk far to see many of the top attractions. Start by touring City Palace , a nearly 300-year-old palace with special courtyards, structures, gardens, and temples.

Just next door is Jantar Mantar, a centuries-old attraction with giant astronomical instruments commissioned by the founder of the city. A 10-minute walk from here brings you to Hawa Mahal , a red-and-pink sandstone structure. Its distinctive lattice design allowed royal women to get a peek at public life while remaining unseen in the 19th century.

Ready to make your trip to "The Paris of India" a memorable experience? Map out your itinerary with our guide to the top attractions and places to visit in Jaipur.

2. jantar mantar, 3. hawa mahal, 4. amber fort, 5. albert hall museum, 6. birla mandir, 7. nahargarh fort, 8. galta ji, 9. amrapali museum, 10. museum of legacies, 11. jal mahal, 12. markets, 13. jaigarh fort, 14. panna meena ka kund, 15. akshardham temple, 16. festivals, map of attractions & places to visit in jaipur, jaipur, india - climate chart.

City Palace in Jaipur

City Palace has stood at the heart of the Old City of Jaipur for nearly three centuries, shortly after Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II decided to relocate his court from the city of Amber. Protected by huge guard walls, the fairy-tale-like structure is still the home of the city's modern-day royal family and endures as one of the top places to visit in Jaipur.

City Palace is more than a sand-colored regal abode — it's a sprawling complex of buildings built around a series of landscaped garden courtyards overlooking Jaipur and Lake Palace. The entire property is a stunning display of Rajasthani and Mughal architecture.

The current occupants reside in the most eye-catching building, the Chandra Mahal , an elegant structure with curved eaves and domed rooftops. Each of its seven stories features an entirely different style. The ground floor is included in the price of admission, but you'll need to book a private tour to go upstairs.

Other noteworthy places for sightseeing at City Palace include the Mubarak Mahal (Welcome Palace), which contains displays of dazzling costumes and textiles; the Armoury, a museum-like space dedicated to preserving finely crafted daggers and swords; Pritam Niwas Chowk (Peacock Courtyard), which has mesmerizing doorways painted to look like the feathers of its namesake bird; and Diwan-i-Am (Hall of Public Audience), which showcases the palace's exquisite collection of miniature paintings.

After exploring the palace, check out the Friends of the Museum Bazaar . It has some of Jaipur's highest quality souvenirs (with equally high prices).

Address: Tulsi Marg, Gangori Bazaar, J.D.A. Market, Pink City, Jaipur

Jantar Mantar

At first glance, Jantar Mantar may look to be nothing more than a bunch of larger-than-life abstract sculptures. But this is not an art gallery — this attraction contains a special collection of astronomical tools started by Rajput ruler Jai Singh II to measure the heavens nearly 300 years ago.

Each of the 20 or so structures at this UNESCO World Heritage Site serves a distinctive purpose. The observatory's massive sundial, known as Samrat Yantra , is particularly striking. At 27 meters tall, it casts a huge shadow that accurately measures time down to two seconds.

The elaborate Jai Prakash also tracks the passing of time, using the shadow of a metal plate suspended above a sunken bowl-like structure. The ingenious Rama Yantra, a circular walled structure, can locate the precise positions of celestial objects. Other tools at the observatory can track stars and even predict eclipses.

Hot tip: It's worth hiring a private guide at Jantar Mantar if you want to learn how each of the structures works.

Address: Gangori Bazaar, J.D.A. Market, Pink City, Jaipur

Hawa Mahal

If you had any preconceived notions about how the buildings in Jaipur look, they probably came from Hawa Mahal (Palace of Breeze). A top place to visit in Jaipur, this structure has all of the distinctive architectural features that appear in postcards of the city, from the salmon-pink, honeycombed facade, built to resemble the crown of the Hindu god Krishna, to the geometric accents and rows of tiny windows.

The landmark was built in 1799 to allow royal ladies to watch festivals on the street without being seen by the public. Its 953 windows allow plenty of breezes to pass through, making it an ideal summer palace (and the perfect spot to get relief from Rajasthan's oppressive heat today).

Tourists can learn about the history of the sandstone structure at the palace's small museum — the ceremonial armor collection is particularly interesting. You can also wander the narrow hallways that run throughout the palace. Don't miss the colorful glasswork in windows and doorways, which cast an otherworldly glow on chambers throughout Hawal Mahal.

Address: Hawa Mahal Rd., Badi Choupad, J.D.A. Market, Pink City, Jaipur

Amber Fort

Jaipur is home to one of India's most-visited forts: Amber Fort. Built in the year 1592, the sandstone and marble monolith stands atop a small hill roughly 20 minute's driving distance northeast of the center of Jaipur. This attraction is best known for being a pristine example of Rajasthani architecture.

Getting to Amber Fort typically involves a short uphill hike that's well worth the effort. It's decked out with intricate patterns of inlaid marble in nearly every color of the rainbow. The fort is laid out into four separate sections, each of which has a spectacular garden courtyard outside. While you'd never know it from above, you can actually explore the fort's underground tunnels , some of which have been restored.

This UNESCO World Heritage Site has a fascinating history of legends, betrayals, and romance — but the best way for tourists to hear these stories is to hire a private guide at the Amber Fort.

Address: Devisinghpura, Amer, Jaipur

Albert Hall Museum

When English writer Rudyard Kipling visited the Albert Hall Museum in Jaipur, he wrote that it was a "rebuke to all other museums in India from Calcutta downwards." That's high praise coming from the son of a curator, and fitting for this renowned institution.

The oldest museum in Rajasthan, the Albert Hall Museum boasts an extensive collection of art and historically significant artifacts. Come for the Egyptian mummy ; stay to see antique coins from different periods in India's history, charming permanent exhibits of miniature paintings, 18th-century costumes worn by members of different castes, and a peculiar collection of 19th-century clay figures demonstrating all the yoga poses.

Hot tip: Visit the museum at night, when multicolored lights brighten the exterior of the alluring building.

Address: Museum Road, Ram Niwas Garden, Kailash Puri, Adarsh Nagar, Jaipur

Birla Mandir

In a city that seems to be dipped from top to bottom in pink, the stark white marble Birla Mandir stands out — big time. The Hindu temple pays tribute to Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and purity, and Vishnu, one of the religion's main deities. It's one of the best places to visit in Jaipur for tourists and Hindu devotees alike.

The marvelous structure exudes a quiet, peaceful vibe, offering just the right atmosphere to appreciate fine marble carvings, shrines to gods, and gorgeous sunset views. While you don't need more than 30 minutes to get a sense of the space, the experience will prove to be a restorative break from a day of sightseeing.

Address: Jawahar Lal Nehru Marg, Tilak Nagar, Jaipur

Nahargarh Fort

When it comes to sightseeing around Jaipur, the views don't get better than what you'll find at Nahargarh Fort. Also known as Tiger Fort , this nearly 300-year-old attraction overlooks the entire city from atop the Aravalli Hills — a prime location for the structure to defend the city against enemies many years ago.

More than just a formidable barrier though, this fort also contains Madhavendra Bhawan , a summer destination for royalty. The sumptuous Rajasthani building features a dozen identical boudoirs for the queens, which all connect to the king's suite through mural-filled corridors.

Tourists can also explore the fort's wax museum and sculpture park. And if you're feeling hungry, swing by one of the fort's many restaurants to tuck into traditional Indian cuisine.

Address: Krishna Nagar, Brahampuri, Jaipur

Galta Ji

Sources of water can be few and far between in the desert state of Rajasthan. So it's no wonder that when people discovered a natural spring in a mountain pass in the Aravalli Hills , they honored it by building the Hindu temple Galta Ji.

Nestled between cliffs, the temple features a few sacred water tanks, some with modest fountains, as well as frescoes that tell tales about the Hindu god Krishna.

Galta Ji is also one of the best places to visit in Jaipur if you want to see monkeys . It's home to hundreds of macaques and langurs (hence its nickname, "The Monkey Temple"). Daring tourists might opt to buy a handful of peanuts at the gate to tempt the monkeys, but you're better off just watching the rambunctious creatures from a distance.

Indian bracelets with diamonds and jewels

When the founders of the beloved Indian jewelry brand Amrapali Jewels started collecting antique jewelry in the late 1970s, they realized that some of these one-of-a-kind treasures deserved to be preserved and displayed. And so the Amrapali Museum was born, instantly becoming one of the top places to visit in Jaipur.

The jewelry museum in Jaipur features two full floors of glistening jewels and objects from its 4,000-piece collection, showcasing the vast range of Indian craftsmanship.

The displays show just how seriously Rajasthani people take their gold, silver, and precious gems. Among the jewels, you'll see silver bands for horses' legs, a chariot fully covered in silver, embellished shoe covers, and a glorious crown for a groom from Himachal Pradesh.

While these pieces are for display only, there's an extensive range of necklaces, bracelets, and other wearables available for purchase at the Museum Shop.

Address: Ground Floor, K, 14/B, Ashok Marg, Panch Batti, C Scheme, Ashok Nagar, Jaipur

For much of history, Rajasthan's most important handicrafts and works of art lived in private collections that were unavailable for viewing by the majority of the public. That all changed when the Government of Rajasthan opened the Museum of Legacies in 2017.

Housed in a two-centuries-old mansion, this tourist attraction showcases an assortment of Indian embroidery, giant Rajasthani puppets, Pichwai paintings, and much more.

Don't miss the magnificent marble latticework. The amount of swirling detail the artisans were able to carve from such a strong, hard stone is hypnotic.

Address: Kishanpole Bazar Road, Modikhana, Jaipur

Jal Mahal on Man Sagar Lake

One look at the Jal Mahal, and you might think you're seeing a mirage. The graceful palace seems to float atop the twinkling Man Sagar Lake — a calm sight compared to the rest of the frenzied city.

While it appears to have just one story, the Water Palace has four other levels submerged beneath a reservoir. The government no longer allows tourists to visit the site, but you can stroll a pathway around the lake to catch gorgeous views of the attraction. At night, it's lit up in all its glory, casting a golden, glowing reflection on the water.

Rajasthani puppets for sale in Jaipur

Jaipur is a mecca for souvenirs. Markets in the Pink City brim with everything from costume jewelry and precious gemstones to embroidered textiles, cobalt blue pottery, and Rajasthani puppets.

For a no-hassle shopping experience, head to the Rajasthali Handicrafts Emporium across from Ajmeri Gate. The government-run shop sells high-quality traditional handicrafts, like blue pottery decorated with yellow flowers, sets of wooden carvings depicting Rajasthani characters, and hand-printed saris. The prices you see on these items are fixed, so while you won't be able to negotiate a discount, you can also avoid the headache of bargaining.

Johari Bazar is a jewelry lover's paradise. The market glitters from top to bottom with dozens of shops selling everything from costume jewelry to fine silver and gold. No matter your budget, you'll find something beautiful to take home from here.

Finally, don't leave Jaipur without a quick shopping trip to Bapu Bazar. Located just a few blocks southwest of Johari Bazaar, the tourist-favorite market is chock full of handcrafted trinkets, locally made textiles, bedazzled slippers, and souvenirs galore.

Jaigarh Fort

Perched on a hilltop overlooking the Amber Fort, Jaigarh Fort is one of the best places to visit in Jaipur if you want a remarkable view and up-close access to historical artifacts. It's best known for housing the Jaivana Cannon, which was considered to be the world's largest cannon on wheels when it was built in the early 18th century.

Visiting the attraction gives tourists an appreciation for the fort's role in keeping Jaipur and the surrounding area safe from invaders. Spread over a range of three kilometers, the fort features thick sandstone walls and a series of subterranean passages. It's thought to be the strongest of Jaipur's forts.

Beyond fortified, though, the fort was also an opulent place when it was in use. You can still see its majestic palace complex and intricate architecture on tours today.

Panna Meena ka Kund

Another one of the popular things to do in Amer after visiting the Amber Fort is taking a 10-minute walk south to visit Panna Meena ka Kund, a stepwell that dates back to the 16th century.

Locals used to come to this spot to fill their pots with water for rituals and household chores. It was also the go-to place to cool off from the intense desert heat.

Today, the attraction's primary purpose is as a backdrop for tourist photos — and for good reason. Its golden yellow hue and labyrinthine steps, which look like they were plucked from one of M.C. Escher's artworks, make for postcard-worthy images . But as tempting as it might be to enter the beautiful attraction for a selfie, Panna Meena ka Kund does not allow visitors to go inside, so keep your photo shoot to the exterior only.

Akshardham Temple in Jaipur at night

Akshardham Temple might look like an ancient site, but don't be fooled — this attraction was built in the 21st century as part of a series of 10 temples dedicated to the Hindu god Narayana (a form of Lord Vishnu).

Still, the 23-acre religious complex is an impressive place to spend the afternoon. The white marble and pink sandstone temple showcases the intricacy of Hindu architecture with its stone carvings of Hindu deities, animals, and scenery. Step inside to see massive pure-gold statues and pristine paintings. There's also a peaceful garden courtyard brimming with lush plants and a musical fountain just outside.

Address: Vidyut Nagar, Vaishali Nagar, Chitrakoot, Jaipur

Elephant Festival in Jaipur

Attending an annual festival is one of the top things to do in Jaipur, and the city's calendar is chock full of events.

In January, you can watch colorful creations fly through the sky during the International Kite Festival and get books signed by famous authors at the Jaipur Literature Festival.

The city hosts its Elephant Festival, during which the tusked animals are painted with Indian motifs and dressed in extravagant costumes, in February or March (depending on the moon cycle). And the two-day Teej Festival, a celebration that honors the union of Shiva and the goddess Parvati, occurs in July or August.

Delve into Jaipur's Old City beyond its famous monuments on one of the early morning or evening immersive heritage walking tours conducted by Vedic Walks . Depending on which tour you choose, you'll get to visit communities of artisans such as bangle-makers and metal workers, gemstone workshops, ancient temples, a traditional Ayurvedic hospital, and old stables converted into a market. The tours depart at 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., and run for about two and a half hours. Another option is this insightful Temples and Havelis Walking Tour conducted by Virasat Experiences. It uncovers some of the Old City's lesser known-architectural wonders and traditions of local communities.

Have an Encounter with Royalty

Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II built the City Palace as part of his new capital in Jaipur. It was completed in 1732 and has an expansive complex of courtyards. The royal family still lives there, in the graceful Chandra Mahal. Various parts of the palace are open to the public according to the type of ticket purchased. Standard City Palace composite tickets cost 300 rupees for Indians and 700 rupees for foreigners. These provide access to palace courtyards, galleries, Jaigarh fort, and the royal cenotaphs. A highlight is the palace's Pritam Niwas Chowk with its colorful painted doorways representing the different seasons. Other attractions include displays of royal costumes, old Indian weapons, paintings and photographs. Special tickets provide access (with a guide) to the royal family's private quarters, and start from 1,500 rupees for Indians and 2,000 rupees for foreigners.

The City Palace is situated in the Old City and is open daily from 9.30 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. It reopens from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. in the evenings for a sound and light show, plus night viewing. Tickets for this cost 500 rupees for Indians and 1,000 rupees for foreigners. For an extra special experience, have dinner at the City Palace's Baradari restaurant while you're there.

Go Behind the Iconic Wind Palace

The intricate facade of the Hawa Mahal (Wind Palace) is possibly Jaipur's most photographed building. Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh constructed it in 1799 as an extension of the women's quarters of the City Palace, to enable the royal women to look out over the main street below without being observed. Wind used to flow through the shutters, giving the palace its name. However, most are now sealed closed to help preserve them. It's possible to go inside the Hawa Mahal from the entrance around the back. Government composite tickets, costing 300 rupees for Indians and 1,000 rupees for foreigners, are available from Rajasthan's Department of Archaeology & Museums . These tickets are valid for two days and also include Amber Fort, Nahargarh Fort, Jantar Mantar observatory, and Albert Hall Museum. Otherwise, the entry fee is 50 rupees for Indians and 200 rupees for foreigners. The Hawa Mahal is open daily from 9 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Find out more in this essential guide to the Hawa Mahal.

Learn About Astronomy

Jantar Mantar's intriguing structures are actually a collection of astrological instruments. Each has a specialized astronomical function such as measuring time, predicting eclipses, and tracking stars. The most impressive one is the huge Samrat Yantra sundial. At a height of 90 feet (27 meters), its shadow moves roughly the width of a person's hand every minute. It's a profound display of how quickly time does in fact go! Jantar Mantar (literally meaning "calculation instrument") is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of five such astronomical observatories built by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, a renowned mathematician and astronomer. It was completed in 1738 and is located next to the City Palace in the Old City. The entrance fee, for those who don't have a government composite ticket, is 50 rupees for Indians and 200 rupees for foreigners.

Explore Amber Fort and Palace

TripSavvy / Alicia Erikson

Like something out of a fairy tale, Amber Fort sits atop a hill overlooking Maota Lake about 30 minutes north of the city center. Maharaja Man Singh I, who led Mughal Emperor Akbar's army, commenced constructing the fort in 1592. It was the home of Kachwaha Rajput rulers until Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II relocated their capital to Jaipur city in 1727. Inside is a series of lavish palaces, halls, gardens, and temples. Elaborate mirror work adds to the grandeur. Amber Fort is open daily from 8 a.m. until 5.30 p.m. Many people choose to remain there for the evening sound and light show that brings to life the fort's history, night viewing, and dinner at opulent restaurant 1135 AD (which was once the king's private dining room). The fort reopens, evocatively illuminated, from 6:30 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. The entry fee during the day for those who don't have a government composite ticket is 100 rupees for Indians and 500 rupees for foreigners. Plan your trip with this complete guide to Amber Fort.

See the World's Largest Cannon on Wheels

Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II built Jaigarh Fort in 1726 to protect Amber Fort. This fort holds great appeal for military lovers, as it contains the world's largest cannon on wheels. The cannon has never been fired though, and neither has the fort been captured. As a result, it has remained impressively intact over its long life. In fact, the fort is one of the best-preserved military structures of medieval India. Jaigarh doesn't have the delicate palace interiors of Amber Fort, and therefore appears as a real fortress. Climb Diwa Burj watchtower to get an outstanding view over the plains. The fort is situated above Amber Fort and can be reached on foot (if you're fit!). It's open from 9.30 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. daily. Those who don't have a City Palace composite ticket must pay an entry fee of 50 rupees for Indians and 100 rupees for foreigners.

Admire the Remarkable Water Palace

Jaipur's remarkable Jal Mahal (Water Palace) appears to magically float on Man Sagar Lake near Amber Fort. Not a lot is known about its history but Maharaja Sawai Madho Singh I is thought to have made it a lodge for royal duck hunting trips in the mid 18th century. The palace actually has four floors that are submerged below the water, with specially designed lime mortar to prevent water seepage. Unfortunately, despite being renovated, the palace not yet open to the public, so you'll have to be content with viewing it from the side of the lake.

Spend Sunset at Nahargarh Fort

Compact yet robust Nahargarh Fort (also known as Tiger Fort) is perched high on the rugged Aravali Hills northwest of Jaipur city. Sawai Jai Singh II commissioned it in 1734 to help strengthen the security of his new capital. It found fame in 2006, after scenes from the hit Bollywood movie Rang De Basanti were filmed there. The fort provides spectacular views over the city, particularly at sunset. Inside, the highlight is the Madhavendra Bhavan palace complex, which is the backdrop for the new Sculpture Park. There's also a wax museum, elegant fine-dining restaurant called Once Upon a Time, and a budget government-run restaurant called Padao. If you don't have a government composite ticket, you'll need to pay an entry fee of 50 rupees or Indians and 200 rupees for foreigners to access the palace part of the fort. Those who are feeling energetic can hike up to the fort from the Old City. The main palace part is open from 10 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. daily. Refer to this essential guide to Nahargarh Fort for more information.

Relax at the Royal Cenotaphs

Despite being included in the City Palace composite ticket, the Gatore ki Chhatriyan cenotaphs at the foothills of Nahargarh Fort are overlooked by most tourists. This makes them delightfully restful most of the time. The superbly carved cenotaphs honor Jaipur's deceased kings, from Sawai Jai Singh ll to Man Singh ll. The most impressive cenotaph is dedicated to Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh ll. It's made out of white marble, has 20 pillars, and is decorated in carvings of Hindu gods and people. The cenotaph complex is open daily from 9.30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Take the Jaipur-Amber Road and turn off near Jal Mahal to get there. The entry fee for those who don't have a City Palace composite ticket is 40 rupees for Indians and 100 rupees for foreigners. Nearby Garh Ganesh temple is worth visiting too.

Go on a Heritage Water Walk

There are two little-known but important stepwells with amazing architecture around Jaipur (one at Nahargarh and the other near Amber Fort). You can learn about their functionality and the sacredness of water in Rajasthani culture on the informative walking tours conducted by Heritage Water Walks. The explanation of the ancient water catchment systems used to supply water to the forts is fascinating. The tours run for two hours. The cost is 1,000-1,100 rupees per person for Indians and 1,300-1,500 rupees for foreigners. Timings are flexible.

Pose for Photos Inside Patrika Gate

skaman306 /Getty Images

Jaipur's ninth and most colorful gate, Patrika Gate, graces the entrance to Jawahar Circle garden five minutes north of Jaipur airport. This recently constructed but traditional-style ornamental gate is named after the Rajasthani newspaper and media company, Patrika. Its interior walls are covered in splendid paintings depicting scenes from daily life and various regions in Rajasthan. Not surprisingly, it's one of the most popular places for photo shoots in Jaipur.

Get Up Close to Monkeys

The rather ruinous but holy Galtaji temple is nestled between two granite cliffs at the far eastern edge of the city. It's part of a larger temple complex, which also has three sacred pools of water. One of the pools has been taken over by thousands of monkeys that congregate there to swim and bathe. They're generally friendly and love to be fed. Unfortunately, the area is not well maintained. Be prepared to encounter dirt and trash, as well as people who will coerce you to pay money. Visit late afternoon, near sunset, when the monkeys flock to the temple. To get there, from the road walk up the hill to the white Sun Temple, and then follow the steps downhill into the gorge.

Take a Hot Air Balloon Flight

Jaipur is one of the most majestic spots for hot air balloon flights in India. Skywaltz operates two different routes. The main one is just north of Jaipur, surrounding Amber fort. The balloons drift over local villages, forts, and palaces. The other route covers the untouched area around Samode Palace and village. Starting points vary depending on wind speed and direction. The duration of the flight is about an hour, and the cost is from $190 per person. The season extends from September to April.

Shop 'Til You Drop

Thanks to Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, who turned Jaipur into a commercial hub by inviting artisans and traders to settle there, the city is a great place to shop! You'll find an enticing variety of goods including precious gemstones , silver jewelry, bangles, clothes, perfumes, blue pottery, and textiles. The lanes in the Old City's bazaars are each dedicated to specific handicrafts. In Tripolia Bazaar, head to crowded Maniharon ka Rasta for lacquer bangles (Awaz Mohammed is an award-winning bangle-maker). Inexpensive jewelry is sold at Johari Bazaar, while Bapu Bazaar has textiles. Metal-workers occupy Thateron ka Rasta, Jhalaniyon Ka Rasta has spice sellers, and Khajanewalon Ka Rasta is the place for marble statues. M.I. Road is lined with upmarket branded stores. Here are some top places to go shopping in Jaipur. Alternatively, Virasat Experiences offers shopping tours to local markets. Do note that many stores are closed on Sundays.

Be Dazzled at the Wholesale Flower Market

Early risers shouldn't miss the fragrant wholesale flower market, known as phool mandi , which takes place just inside the Old City's Chandi ki Taksal Gate. It gets underway at around 6 a.m., with traders selling sacks filled to the brim with bright blooms such as marigolds and roses. The flowers are used by garland makers, as offerings in temples, and as decorations for weddings. Combine your visit with the neighboring fruit and vegetable market as well. If it's a Saturday, the Hatwara flea market pops up there too and is delightfully free of tourists.

View an Egyptian Mummy

Jaipur's Albert Hall Museum is housed in a magnificent old Indo-Saracenic building that was completed in 1187. It's Rajasthan's oldest museum and has an eclectic collection with many items from the city's past including portraits of kings, costumes, jewelry, woodcarvings, paintings, sculptures and pottery. However, the most notable exhibit is an Egyptian mummy, belonging to the Ptolemaic dynasty. Unfortunately photography isn't allowed. The museum is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and again for night viewing from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. when it's illuminated. The entry fee for those who don't have a government composite ticket is 40 rupees for Indians and 300 rupees for foreigners. Night entry tickets are 100 rupees per person irrespective of nationality.

Discover Rajasthan's Arts and Crafts

The Rajasthan government recently converted the Rajasthan School of Arts building in the Old City into a museum dedicated to the state's arts and crafts. The Museum of Legacies opened in 2017 and is housed in a mansion that was originally constructed in 1823 as the residence of Pandit Shivdeen (a minister in the court of Maharaja Ram Singh II). The building itself is one of the main attractions. Its five galleries are spread over three floors, and each displays a collection curated by a noteworthy individual in the arts scene in India. Indigenous arts are a feature. The museum also has a dedicated space for young artists to exhibit their works. It's open from noon to 8 p.m. daily except Mondays (closed). Entry is free.

Attend a Cultural Performance or Exhibition

Following its recent revamp, it has come alive with regular exhibitions from a range of genres such as photography and architecture, seminars, workshops, dance and music recitals, and theater shows.

It's open from 9.30 a.m to 9 p.m. on weekdays, and 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekends.

As its name suggests, it was founded by Amrapali, a renowned Indian luxury jewelry house favored by Bollywood stars. All the exhibits in this remarkable museum are from the personal collection of the brand's owners, which they've amassed over 40 years from the time they started sourcing jewelry and opened their business. There are some very unusual items such as silver anklets for horses, a Parsi necklace with a hidden message, a holy water flask, bejeweled tooth cleaners, and ruby-studded back-scratcher with conceal blades. The museum is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. Tickets cost 600 rupees per person and include an audio guide.

Sample Rajasthani Cuisine

For all kinds of local street food in one spot, head to Masala Chowk -- an open-air food court in Ram Niwas Garden, close to Albert Hall Museum. Many of the city's much-loved street food vendors have stalls there. It's open daily from around 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. There's an entry fee of 10 rupees per person.

Chokhi Dhani serves up authentic rural cuisine in a recreated 12.5 acre Rajasthani village setting about 40 minutes south of Jaipur. It's quite touristy, with cultural performances such as puppet shows and folk dances, so is best suited to first-time visitors. Opening hours are 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. daily.

You can enjoy delicious masala chai in a cool, clean environment at Tapri the Tea House. where roadside chai meets hipster hangout. Tapri Central on Prithviraj Road in C-Scheme is the original and best of the three Tapri outlets in Jaipur.

If tea stalls are more your style, try the uniquely flavored tea at Sahu Chaiwala , opposite Sai Baba Mandir on Chaura Rasta in the Old City. This family-run tea stall was established in 1968. They slow boil the milk on a coal stove. It's open from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. Gulab Ji Chai's long-running stall on M.I. Road also has a loyal following. Their chai is now available at the new and cute D'Good Cafe in Bani Park.

Have a Drink at Bar Palladio

Bar Palladio

Bar Palladio, at the historic Narain Niwas Palace Hotel, is possibly Jaipur's most photogenic bar. Renowned Dutch designer Marie-Anne Oudejans created its interiors, and they are stunning. The bar is an ideal spot for a post-sightseeing cocktail or gin, accompanied by delicious Italian food. It's open daily from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. In the evening, the atmosphere is magical, with tented garden pavilions and candlelight.

See a Bollywood Movie at Raj Mandir

A lot of people who go to see a movie at Raj Mandir on Bhagwant Das Road (near M.I. Road) do so to mainly to have a look inside. Its owner, a reputed Jaipur jeweler, wanted to create a cinema that makes the audience feel like they're a guest of a royal palace. The way it has been designed -- resplendent with spiral staircase, antique chandeliers, and a ceiling that changes color -- is certainly intriguing. Movies, in Hindi, are screened in the afternoons and evenings.

Stay in Heritage Hotel

Immerse yourself in Jaipur's regal heritage by staying in an authentic palace hotel, or a less costly hertiage property. There are plenty to choose from. The magnificent Taj Rambagh Palace used to be the home of the Maharaja of Jaipur and is the pick of the bunch if budget isn't a constraint. It's worth treating yourself! Sujan Raj Mahal Palace (immaculately renovated in 2014) and Samode Haveli are other top luxury options. For somewhere a bit less costly, check out Diggi Palace, Alsisar Haveli , Narain Niwas Palace , and Shahpura House . 150 year-old Arya Niwas is recommended for budget travelers.

India's 'Pink City' Is a Feast for the Senses — Here Are the Best Things to Do in Jaipur

Historic palaces, delicious treats, and gorgeous textiles await in Jaipur.

benedek/Getty Images

Steeped in history and tradition, Jaipur, India’s Pink City , is a stunning UNESCO World Heritage site with no shortage of things to do, see, and eat. Explore centuries-old palaces and imposing fortresses where architecture and artistry combine for breathtaking results. Learn how gems are polished and cut at legendary jewelers. Be captivated as skilled artisans print motifs across fabrics using carved blocks. Fall in the love with the immense beauty and bustle of Rajasthan’s capital as well as the wilderness beyond. 

With the help of Ashish Balodhi, concierge at the 71-room Oberoi Rajvilas ; William Mulford, creative director of the Palladio Group, including Villa Palladio Jaipur , a new nine-room boutique hotel just beyond the city center; and Chinar Farooqui, the founder of Injiri, a Jaipur-based clothing brand that works exclusively with handloom fabrics, we’ve created the ultimate list of things to do in Jaipur.

See the Hawa Mahal by day and night.

Translating to Palace of the Winds, this honeycomb-like red sandstone structure is one of Jaipur’s most famous sites. "By day, it invites you to explore its intricate interiors," says Balodhi. "But by night, the colorful mirrored windows come alive. To truly appreciate this transformation, visit after 9 p.m. when the bustling streets have settled down."

Visit the 19 astronomical instruments at Jantar Mantar.

ferrantraite/Getty Images

An open-air observatory dating back to 1728, Jantar Mantar is a testimony to Rajput king (and founder of Jaipur) Sawai Jai Singh’s interest in and knowledge of astronomy. "There’s actually a secret passage that runs just behind Jantar Mantar, but that’s our little secret," says Mulford.

Let your jaw drop at Patrika Gate.

Colorful and intricately painted with beautiful frescoes, this more recently built gateway pays homage to the seven original gates that were used to access the walled city of Jaipur. "It’s fantastic for photographs," says Mulford.

Imagine the opulence of yesteryear at the City Palace.

Spread across a series of courtyards, the City Palace was and still is the royal residence of the last ruling family. Four ornate doorways representing the seasons — Green Gate (spring), Lotus Gate (summer), Peacock Gate (autumn), and Rose Gate (winter) — are among the many highlights here. "I am particularly drawn to the antique textiles, traditional Rajasthani clothing, and craftsmanship showcased within the palace," notes Farooqui.

Join evening prayers at Govind Dev Ji temple.

"The Govind Dev Ji temple is an oasis of spirituality," says Balodhi. "Partake in blessing ceremonies led by priests and experience the evening worship accompanied by hymns."

Sip classic cocktails at striking Bar Palladio.

Within the Narain Niwas Palace hotel, the blue-hued Bar Palladio is a visual treat, an ode to the city’s peacocks perhaps. "Order the Jungle Fever, made with tequila, chili, cilantro and lime," recommends Mulford.

Book a table at The Johri hotel's restaurant and bar.

Elegant interiors and locally sourced ingredients have made this hidden gem a must. "I really appreciate the restaurant’s commitment to using locally sourced and seasonal ingredients," shares Farooqui.

Indulge your sweet tooth at Pandit Kulfi.

Dating back to 1965, Pandit Kulfi is a legendary establishment for its Indian-style ice cream known as kulfi , a dense, creamy, often nut-studded confection that involves simmering milk for hours and hours. "Try their kesar kulfi , infused with saffron, or the rabdi kulfi ," suggests Balodhi.

Nurse a nightcap at the Taj Rambagh Palace’s Polo Bar.

Magical by night, with lights festooned along the building’s sculpted archways, the 78-room Taj Rambagh Palace was originally built as a hunting lodge and is a sight to behold.

Visit Brigitte Singh’s hand-block printing center in Sanganer.

"What truly sets this experience apart is the opportunity to engage directly with local artisans, witnessing their skills firsthand and even trying your hand at block printing in their bustling workshop," says Balodhi.

Or, stop in at the Anokhi Museum of Hand Printing.

This museum showcases the art of hand block printing, highlighting the history and techniques with block carving and printing demonstrations throughout the day. There’s also an on-site shop selling tunics, bed linens, paper goods, and more.  

Taste traditional sweets at LMB.

Sample all manner of savory snacks and confections at centuries-old Laxmi Misthan Bhandar (LMB), including ghewar , a disc-shaped Rajasthani sweet made from flour, clarified butter, and sugar.

Shop till you drop at Jaipur’s many textile boutiques.

" Rasa  stands out as an oasis for those seeking contemporary and sophisticated block-printed soft furnishings," says Balodhi. "Each piece reflects a fusion of tradition and modernity, making it a prime choice for home linens. While Rasa shines brightly, consider other notable options like Soma and Anokhi , too."

Ogle all the wares at the bazars.

Exploring Johri Bazar, Tripolia Bazar, and Chameli Market gives visitors a sense of the daily life as they watch locals who specialize in silver, gems, leather shoes, pottery, and more.

Admire baubles at The Gem Palace and Amrapali.

Dazzling gemstone necklaces, earrings, and bracelets from these legendary houses make the ultimate souvenir. Amrapali’s collection of tribal-inspired and traditional pieces is unrivaled, while The Gem Palace excels at artistic and more contemporary creations, notes Farooqui.

Attend the annual Jaipur Literature Festival.

"It’s one of the world’s largest literary gatherings, featuring renowned authors and discussions on various topics," says Farooqui.

Visit one of Jaipur’s grand forts.

"Perched on a hill, Amber Fort is stunning in the soft morning light," says Farooqui. "Visiting at sunrise allows you witness the fort bathed in gentle rays of the rising sun.” By contrast, consider a visit to Nahargarh Fort at sunset.

Ride in a rickshaw and try local street snacks.

FG Trade/Getty Images

"There are several stalls, in the C-Scheme area along Vaniki Path, that specialize in chilla (sprouted moong dal pancakes, drizzled with tamarind and cilantro chutneys and served with yogurt," says Mulford. "They are super yummy and quite healthy."

Take to the skies in a hot air balloon.

"Ballooning over Jaipur with SkyWaltz Balloon is an awe-inspiring experience," says Balodhi. "Take in the expansive Aravalli hills and majestic Amber Fort during your 60-minute flight."

Spot wildlife on a wilderness safari.

Spread across eight square miles, the Jhalana Leopard Safari Park makes a wonderful half-day adventure. Visitors can keep their eyes peeled for leopards, Indian foxes, hyenas, spotted deer, and migratory birds.

Spread across four levels, the fortress was once home to Rajput Maharajas. The present structure dates back to the 1500s (with many additions and alterations made over the years), though it stands on the site of a much older fortress.

There are a couple of historic monumental gateways along the road, as well as a popular cinema, markets, and shops. It’s also a top spot for food fans, with a great selection of street food specialties and sit-down restaurants ranging from the quick and casual to the more upmarket and formal.

What to do there: Snap photos of the Sanganeri Gate, an impressive pink gateway that’s decorated with pale motifs and that spans the road, and the arched Ajmeri Gate, which is another vision of loveliness in dusky pink and cream tones. Try the popular dish of dal bati churma, which consists of a baked ball of dough coated in ghee and eaten with lentils.

Let your senses, cravings, and hunger pangs guide you as you sample various other local and national delights, such as kachori, golgappa, kaathi roll, keema baati, chicken tikka, and shrikhand. Leave plenty of space for ice cream and other sweet treats and a glass of lassi or warming cup of masala chai.

Also, remember that travelling safely means being extra careful with what you ingest while abroad especially in terms of street food. If in doubt, don’t eat it!

  • Architectural gem

Why it’s awesome: The stunning building of Albert Hall dates back to the late 1800s. The foundation stone was laid to commemorate a visit of Albert Edward (then the Prince of Wales) to the city, although there were no firm plans as to what the building would actually be used for. It was eventually agreed that the building would house a small crafts museum. Over the years the collections expanded and diversified, leading to what is today one of India’s most comprehensive and detailed history and culture museums. The interiors of the building have striking murals that depict various civilisations from across the globe.

What to do there: Soak in the splendour of Albert Hall from the outside, with its elegant arches, domes, balconies, and terraces, and work your way around the diverse and vast collections contained within the marvellous building.

#19 – Maota Lake – One of the nicer places in Jaipur to sightsee!

Maota Lake

  • Picturesque water body
  • Small island in the lake
  • Beneath the spectacular Amber Fort
  • Scene of religious rituals

Why it’s awesome: Once the main source of water for the famous Amer Fort, Maota Lake played a vital part during the area’s development. A scenic natural spot, there’s also a small artificial island (Kesar Kyari Bagh) in the waters. The lake is a great place for pictures that combine natural scenery and historic buildings.  The yearly Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations see a large parade and a statue of Ganesh is ritually cleaned in the lake’s blue waters. The lake is free to visit, making it especially great for budget travellers.

What to do there: Take a picturesque stroll around the edges of the lake, admiring the pretty scenes that include the lake, the fort, and the island. Try to time your visit for earlier on in the day before the temperatures start to soar. Cross the walkway to the island and wander through the neat and verdant gardens.

#20 – Achrol Fort – One of the most underrated places to see in Jaipur

Achrol Fort

  • Old ruined fortress
  • Great trekking opportunities
  • Overgrown with a deserted feeling

Why it’s awesome: Achrol Fort is one of Jaipur’s forgotten historic fortresses. It was built in the 1500s. Left to the elements, it now sits in an atmospheric state of decay with nature winning the fight to reclaim its space. Overgrown and fairly wild, the ruins have thick but now crumbling walls, water reservoirs that are now stagnant, and towers that must have once stood proudly but now look rather forlorn. Somehow, the ruined state only adds to the charm. Few visitors make it to the old elevated fortress so those who do make the trip can explore in peace and quiet.

What to do there: Follow the uneven and rugged path up to the foot, taking care to avoid slipping on the jagged rocks and loose earth. Wearing sensible shoes is highly recommended! Hear whispers from the past as you walk around the ruins and imagine how mighty and impressive the fortress must have been in its heyday. Have a look around the havelli, complete with fading and chipped wall and ceiling paintings and carvings and other ornate touches on the outer walls.

#22 – Ranthambore National Park – A must visit place to visit in Jaipur on the weekend!

Ranthambore National Park

  • One of India’s biggest national parks
  • Exciting activities and nature spotting

Why it’s awesome: Within easy reach of Jaipur, the expansive Ranthambore National Park is one of the nation’s biggest national parks and should be of interest to all responsible travellers with the best interests of wildlife and conservation at heart. Covering 392 square kilometres (151 square miles), the park contains forests and meadows, lakes and streams.

Conservation and education efforts have led to an increase in the number of tigers in the park. It is also home to a variety of other fascinating creatures. Once a royal hunting ground, the national park also has an old fortress within its boundaries. It’s a top place for a weekend trip from Jaipur for anyone who loves exploring nature and observing exciting creatures in a natural setting. It’s also a perfect location for avid fans of wildlife photography.

What to do there: Join a variety of tours through the park, including wildlife-spotting safaris, specialist bird-watching trips, and hiking. Hike with an experienced local guide to the historic Ranthambhore Fort, passing an assortment of creatures along the way. The tenth-century fort sits on elevated ground and has three stone temples.

#23 – Bhangarh Fort – Cool place to see in Jaipur with friends

Bhangarh Fort jaipur

  • Historic fortress
  • Said to be one of the most haunted forts in all of India
  • Cool architecture
  • Lots of places to explore within the complex

Why it’s awesome: Located in the foothills of the Aravali Hills, Bhangarh Fort was constructed in the 17 th century. Despite its age, it is still well preserved today. There are various buildings throughout the large complex, including palaces, temples, and grand residences known as havellis. The site is often quiet and visitors can commonly explore in relative solitude. Steeped in eerie local legends, stories tell of a deadly curse. It is said that a wizard fell in love with one of the princesses of the fortress. In his pursuit of the beautiful princess he attempted to give her a love potion. She refused and hurled the magic liquid onto a boulder.

The boulder dislodged and crushed the magic man. Before dying, the wizard issued a curse on the fort, saying that it would soon meet devastation and destruction. Shortly afterwards the fortress was invaded by Mughal forces, who killed everybody in their path. Local lore says that the curse will only be quashed when the princess is reborn and returns to the fort. More tales tell of another curse imposed by a local sadhu. According to local myths, the sadhu prohibited anyone from building any structure within the fort that caused a shadow to land on his humble home. One person defied the sadhu, who became angry and cursed the fortress. The eerie ruins are said to be among the most haunted places in the whole of India.

What to do there: See the once glorious havelis that line the dusty and somewhat desolate road that leads to the old abandoned fortress. Sturdy craved wooden doors are kept secured today with big rusty padlocks, a big difference to in times gone by. Explore the large fortress complex, keeping a keen eye open for signs of unusual, ghostly, and supernatural sights. Think of the ill-fated people of the fort as you explore the remains of the King’s Palace and temples.

There are small but ornate temples dedicated to various deities including Hanuman (the Monkey God), Ganesh (the Elephant God), and Shiv Mahadev. The stepwell at the Someshwara Temple is especially photogenic. See where the resident priest once lived, stroll through the long-deserted but once bustling marketplace, admire the pretty pond and stream, and see monumental gateways. You can also see an old Islamic tomb just outside the fort’s boundaries.

#24 – Smriti Van – A beautiful and scenic place to check out in Jaipur

Smriti Van in jaipur

  • Natural splendour
  • Romantic destination
  • Rich array of flora and fauna
  • Tranquil and serene ambience

Why it’s awesome: The bio-diverse forest of Smriti Van is a pleasant sanctuary for those wanting to get away from city life for a while and explore nature. The park has a somewhat sad history—it was created on the back of intense and destructive flooding in the early 1980s. The floodwaters created deep chasms and people planted trees here to remember loved ones. The local government later decided to turn the area into a forest, and it was opened to the public in 2007. There are 11 zones within the park, each offering something different for visitors. There are many types of plants and people can enjoy outdoor activities.

What to do there: Discover the various areas of Smriti Van and see the wide assortment of flora. Visit the main area of Vasundhra Van, rich with diverse plants and trees. At Aravali Van you can see plant life that is typical to the Aravali Hills, while Rashtriya Van and Java Kusum Van display plants from all around India. The herb garden is also well worth a visit. Pay a visit to the Eco-Environment Museum to see images of the different plants and birds found throughout the park. Sarovar is an ideal place to spot different birds and fish in and around the ponds. Get your morning exercise along the walking/jogging trails and relish the peace and serenity.

#25 – Nahargarh Fort – A great place to visit Jaipur at night

Nahargarh Fort jaipur

  • Large and popular historic fortress
  • Fabulous vistas
  • Lit up at night time
  • Mountain location

Why it’s awesome: Dominating the local landscape within the Aravalli Hills, the magnificent and statuesque Nahargarh Fort was constructed in the 1730s. The fortress was never attacked. It was, however, used to provide a safe haven for Europeans during the uprisings. An extensive complex, there are various interesting buildings within the defensive outer walls, including a 12-room palace for the royal ladies and temples.

Ghost stories surround the fort, with tales of hauntings. There’s a splendid park in the fortress complex too, letting people enjoy nature and history at the same time. There are terrific views from the high fort and it’s beautifully illuminated in the darkness. The complex has been used as a filming location for several productions.

What to do there: Stand in the open courtyard where the ruler used to meet with townsfolk to hear their issues and attempts to seek resolutions. Make merit and pay your respects in the sacred temples, paying particular attention to the temple dedicated to a ghostly prince that is said to have once troubled the fortress. See the guns that, although never used for war, were used to indicate the time. Marvel at the glorious frescoes inside the 12-room Madhavendra Bhawan, which was once the living quarters of the queens.

If you want to delve deeper into the fort’s past you can hire an informative guide to take you around the site. Don’t miss seeing the diverse nature within Nahargarh Biological Park, and get active with hiking and cycling adventures. While the fortress is impressive by day, do return in the evening to see the spectacular building stunningly illuminated and to see the views of the Pink City at night with twinkling lights breaking the darkness of the inky skies.

Anyway I fully vouch for this post and 100% testify that it it a fair representation of the best things to do in Jaipur for the ‘average visitor’.

Tsaritsyno Palace

Once the summer residence of Catherine the Great, the stunning Tsaritsyno Palace is now a museum-reserve. The architecture is magnificent and there is a lovely park surrounding it for visitors to explore.

Located in the south of Moscow, the palace was commissioned in 1775 and recent renovations mean its lavish interior looks better than ever before with its elegant halls and beautiful staircases.

The exhibits on display look at the life of the empress as well as the history of Tsaritsyno itself. The huge palace grounds are also home to some other delightful buildings with the elegant opera house and wonderful brickwork of the Small Palace being particularly impressive to gaze upon.

VDNKh

Starting out in 1935 as the ‘All-Union Agricultural Exhibition’, VDNKh has slowly morphed over the years into the fascinating open-air museum of today. Remarkably, over 400 buildings can now be found within its confines.

The huge park complex has numerous pavilions representing former Soviet republics on show, such as those of Armenia and Turkmenistan and the distinctive architecture of each of the buildings is always interesting to gaze upon. In addition to this there is the fascinating Memorial Museum of Cosmonautics which is dedicated to space exploration and the fun Moskvarium aquarium even offers you the chance to swim with dolphins.

With lots of eateries scattered about and numerous entertainment options such as horse-riding and zip-lining, there is something for everyone to enjoy; the Friendship of Nations fountain truly is wonderful.

15. Kremlin Armoury

Kremlin Armoury

One of the oldest museums in the city, the Kremlin Armoury has a wealth of treasures; highlights include the ornate Grand Siberian Railway egg, the historic Cap of Monomakh and the stunning Imperial Crown of Russia which often has a crowd of tourists around it, jostling to take a photo.

Once the royal armory, there are loads of fascinating objects on display. Perusing the many sabers, jewelry, armor and more is as interesting as it is educational and entertaining and the swords are so finely crafted that you’ll almost wish you could pick up one and wield if yourself.

Established in 1851, the museum is situated in the Moscow Kremlin.

14. GUM Department Store

GUM Department Store

Standing for ‘Main Universal Store’ in Russian, GUM is stunning. Its wonderful skylights and beautiful facades mean it doesn’t look out of place alongside its illustrious neighbors on Red Square.

With over 200 shops, boutiques and upmarket eateries inside, it is a shopaholic’s heaven and concerned partners will be glad to find more affordable options alongside luxury brands such as Dior and Prada.

The main department store in the city, GUM was opened in 1893. The stunning architecture makes it well worth a visit even if shopping isn’t your thing.

13. Moscow Metro

Moscow Metro

It’s not often that public transport looks like a work of art. So many stops on the Moscow Metro will astound visitors with their beauty and elegance.

Decked in marble and with frescoes covering the walls, the stations are amazing to gaze upon and are part of one of the longest metro systems in the world, with the first stations opened in 1935.

Using the metro is the quickest and easiest way to get around Moscow and braving the crowds of commuters is well worth it for the beauty all around you.

12. Arbat Street

Arbat Street

An elegant yet lively street, Arbat is full of impressive architecture and was once a popular place to live for aristocrats, artists, and academics.

A historic place, it is down Arbat Street that Napoleon’s troops are said to have headed on their way to capture the Kremlin.

Nowadays, there are many cafes, restaurants, and shops, as well as various monuments and statues to former residents such as Alexander Pushkin who was reputed to be a lover of the Russian Empress due to his massive influence in court.

11. Novodevichy Convent

Novodevichy Convent

Drenched in history, the Novodevichy Convent is located in a striking building that was once a fortress. This captivating place is well worth visiting when in Moscow.

Founded in 1524, the convent houses four cathedrals; Smolensk Cathedral is the undoubted highlight due to its delightful 16th-century frescoes.

Wandering around the grounds is like stepping back in time. The Novodevichy Cemetery is where many famous leaders of the Soviet Union are buried, such as Yeltsin and Khrushchev.

10. Pushkin Museum

Pushkin Museum

Despite its name, the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts actually has no connection at all to the famous poet other than that it was named in his honor after his death. A delight to visit, its extensive collection focuses on European art with masterpieces by Botticelli, Rembrandt, and van Gogh all featuring.

Sculptures, graphic art, paintings and more can be found in its beautiful galleries; various sections look at themes and epochs such as the Renaissance, the Dutch Golden Age, and Byzantine art.

Among the many highlights are the clownish characters which can be found in Cezanne’s Fastnacht (Mardi Gras) and the twirling ballerinas who look so elegant in Degas’ Blue Dancers. Picasso’s Young acrobat on a Ball is also well worth checking out for its interesting use of shapes and colors.

9. Christ The Savior Cathedral

Christ The Savior Cathedral

This gorgeous Russian Orthodox cathedral is located on the banks of the Moskva River, just a stone’s throw away from the Kremlin.

The church as it stands today was consecrated in 2000, as the original church that stood here was destroyed on the command of Josef Stalin in 1931 due to the anti-religious campaign.

With its delightful golden dome, spires and dazzling white facades, the Christ the Savior Cathedral is stunning. The interior is just as captivating to wander around, with its beautifully tiled floors and impressive altar.

8. Lenin Mausoleum

Lenin Mausoleum

Opened to the public in 1924, Lenin’s Mausoleum is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Moscow. The red granite structure is located at the heart of the city in Red Square.

Lenin’s embalmed body lies in a glass sarcophagus; it is a somewhat eerie experience walking past the former leader of the Soviet Union but is well worth doing as you understandably can’t do it anywhere else in the world.

After visiting the mausoleum, head to the Kremlin wall right next to it for more graves of important communist figures such as Stalin and Brezhnev.

7. Tretyakov Gallery

Tretyakov Gallery

Home to the most extensive and impressive collection of Russian fine art in the world, the State Tretyakov Gallery is definitely worth visiting when in Moscow for the wealth of amazing art pieces that it has on display.

Having started out as the private art collection of the Tretyakov brothers, there are now over 130,000 exhibits.

Among the many stunning sights, it is the brilliantly white Ascension Church that is the undoubted highlight – dating back to 1532.

5. Gorky Park

Gorky Park

Lying alongside the Moskva River, the huge Gorky Park is a lovely place to visit. Its extensive gardens are home to numerous cultural institutions and visitors should definitely check out the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art and while the eclectic exhibits may not always feature such incredible sights as a balloon-covered rider on a zebra; they certainly always succeed in pushing back the boundaries of art.

Pop-up exhibitions and festivals can be found from time to time in the park itself and there is an open-air theatre and numerous eateries alongside a plethora of leisure activities.

Whether it’s cycling, table tennis or yoga that you are after or beach volleyball and rowing, Gorky Park certainly has it. In winter, there is a huge ice rink for visitors to enjoy.

4. Bolshoi Theatre

Bolshoi Theatre

The Bolshoi Theatre is the main theater in the country. The amazing opera and ballet performances it has put on over the centuries go a long way in explaining Russia’s rich history of performing arts.

While the Bolshoi Ballet Company was established in 1776, the theater itself was opened in 1825. The glittering, six-tier auditorium is lavishly and decadently decorated; it is a fitting setting for the world-class performances that take place on its stage.

Spending a night watching a performance of such classics as The Nutcracker or Swan Lake at the Bolshoi Theatre is sure to be a memorable experience and the beauty all around you only adds to the sense of occasion.

3. Moscow Kremlin

Moscow Kremlin

This famously fortified complex is remarkably home to five palaces and four cathedrals and is the historic, political and spiritual center of the city. The Kremlin serves as the residence for the country’s president. It has been used as a fort, and this fact is made clear by its sheer size. The Kremlin’s outer walls were built in the late 1400s.

Under Ivan III, better known as Ivan the Great, the Kremlin became the center of a unified Russian state, and was extensively remodeled. Three of the Kremlin’s cathedrals date to his reign that lasted from 1462-1505. The Deposition Church and the Palace of Facets were also constructed during this time. The Ivan the Great Bell Tower was built in 1508. It is the tallest tower at the Kremlin with a height of 266 feet (81 meters).

Joseph Stalin removed many of the relics from the tsarist regimes. However, the Tsar Bell, the world’s largest bell, and the Tsar Cannon, the largest bombard by caliber in the world, are among the remaining items from that era. The Kremlin Armory is one of Moscow’s oldest museums as it was established more than 200 years ago. Its diamond collection is impressive.

The Kremlin’s gardens – Taynitsky, Grand Kremlin Public and Alexander – are beautiful. The Kremlin has also served as the religious center of the country, and there is a tremendous number of preserved churches and cathedrals here. The collections contained within the museums include more than 60,000 historical, cultural and artistic monuments. Those who enjoy the performing arts will want to consider attending a ballet or concert at the State Kremlin Palace. Completed in 1961, it is the only modern building in the Kremlin.

2. Red Square

Red Square

Lying at the heart of Moscow, Red Square is the most important and impressive square in the city. It is one of the most popular tourist attractions due to its wealth of historical sights and cultural landmarks.

Drenched in history, the huge square is home to incredible sights such as the Kremlin, St. Basil’s Cathedral and Lenin’s Mausoleum, among others. Consequently, it is not to be missed when in Moscow as it really is home to the city’s most stunning monuments.

It is here that many important moments in Russian history took place; the former marketplace has hosted everything from Tsar’s coronations and public ceremonies to rock concerts and Soviet military parades. Wandering around the massive square is a humbling experience and undoubtedly one of the highlights the city has to offer.

1. Saint Basil’s Cathedral

Saint Basil's Cathedral

Located in the impressive Red Square, St. Basil’s Cathedral is gorgeous; its delightful spires appear as if out of a fairytale. The most recognizable building in the country, the cathedral is very much a symbol of Russia. No visit to Moscow is complete without having taken in its unique and distinctive features.

Ivan the Terrible ordered the cathedral’s construction in the mid-16th century, and legend holds that Ivan put out the architect’s eyes so that he would be unable to build another cathedral more glorious than St. Basil’s. Designed to resemble the shape of a bonfire in full flame, the architecture is not only unique to the period in which it was built but to any subsequent period. For various reasons, both Napoleon and Stalin wanted to destroy the cathedral but fortunately did not succeed.

Known for its various colors, shapes and geometric patterns, St. Basil’s Cathedral houses nine different chapels that are all connected by a winding labyrinth of corridors and stairways. On the lower floor, St. Basil’s Chapel contains a silver casket bearing the body of St. Basil the Blessed.

Throughout the cathedral are many beautiful murals, frescoes, wooden icons and other art works and artifacts. Outside the cathedral is a lovely garden with the bronze Monument to Minin and Pozharsky, who rallied an all-volunteer Russian army against Polish invaders during a period of the late 16th century known as the Times of Troubles.
