Do you want to go on a bike ride to Jaipur and also check the local attractions of Jaipur. If your answer is yes, you are at the right place. In today’s article we would discuss more about the bike ride to Jaipur on a Royal Enfield and also the places to visit once in Jaipur.
It was long that we had a ride, so me and my friend Manish Khosla decided to on a bike ride on our Royal Enfields to Jaipur. Jaipur is around 250 kilometers from Delhi and we decided that we would go to Jaipur on Saturday and come back on Sunday.
We gave our bikes for inspection at the service and topped up the engine oil and started from Delhi at 05:00 AM in the morning and the route that we decided to follow was Gurgaon-Manesar-Behror and finally Jaipur.
We met with Traffic jam at Manesar as the road was under construction and one of the trolleys had turned upside down causing early morning traffic. Once we left Manesar toll it was already 06:30 AM and we were 1 hour behind the schedule that we planned. We took our first pit stop at Behror and had our breakfast of Paranthas with curd and Tea.
The air was pure and we had left the impure air of Delhi back. As we were moving down the highway, Manish’s bikes rear Tyre was punctured. Thanks to the puncture repair kit from Amazon.in that we were able to repair the puncture in no time.
We moved on and reached Jaipur at around 11:00 AM. We requested the Hotel Manager for a early check-in and he agreed to it. We stayed at Hotel White Mushroom and they charged us just 1200 bucks for the night stay. Here are some of the pictures of the Hotel:
The Hotel is situated on Sindhi Colony, Banipark. And the staff is quite helpful and supportive and I really enjoyed my stay at the place.
Now let us talk about the places of interest in Jaipur:
Amber Fort: This is situated on the Aravali hills and gives a splendid view of the city. One can visit the Sheesh Mahal while in Amber Palace. There is a entry fees for the fort: Rs. 25 for Indian Citizens and Rs. 150 for foreign nationals.
Nahargarh Fort: This fort is also built on the Aravali Hills and was built by Jai Singh II. This Fort gives a great view of the Jaipur City during the night. There is a entry fees for the fort: 10 Rs for Indian Citizens and Rs. 25 for foreign nationals.
Hawa Mahal: This Mahal is also known as the Palace of winds. This Palace is a 5 storey Palace and has 953 small windows and it represents the crown of Lord Shri Krishna. The entry of the Palace is free on Monday and it is closed on every Friday.
Jantar Mantar: Jantar Mantar is a place, which you cannot miss while you are in Jaipur. This is an observatory and has been declared as World Heritage site by UNESCO.
Jaigarh Fort: Jaigarh Fort is famous for the Jaivana, the world’s largest canon on wheels. It is belived that it was fired only once in the past and where the canon dropped a lake was made. After that instance it was never fired and thought of this made a fearful figure in the minds of the enemies and they thought twice before attacking this fort.
Chokki Dhani: This place is a must visit while in Jaipur and opens at night. We wanted to stay at night just to visit Chokki Dhani. One can taste the traditional Rajasthani delicacies and also see the traditions of Rajasthan.
We visited all these places while in Jaipur and returned from Chokki Dhani late at night around 12:00 night.
We had a sound sleep at the Hotel and left Jaipur early morning at 06:00 AM and had our first pitstop at Behror and had Kadhi Chawal and really enjoyed it.
So this was about the road trip to Jaipur on my Royal Enfield.
