Jaipur
Known as the "Pink City" because of the color of the stone used for many of its notable structures, Jaipur draws visitors with its chaotic street life and a slew of colorful bazaars selling everything from handmade pottery to tie-dye scarves.
Jaipur is known for historic sites, museums, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: steep yourself in history at Amber Palace, stop by Royal Spices And Tea, make a trip to Jagat Shiromani Ji Temple, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Jame Masjid.

You can plan Jaipur trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

New York City, USA to Jaipur is an approximately 22-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time to India Standard Time is 10.5 hours.

Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Mon) early enough to travel to Kyoto.
