You can revisit history by spending time at forts and palaces, give a treat to your taste buds as there’s no shortage of places that serve good food, shop for handicrafts without actually splurging, and have a great time with friends and family at lavish bars and restaurants. To those who aren’t a local, we insist that you visit the city and spend at least a couple of days enjoying Rajasthani hospitality. And, while you are in the city, here’s our list of things to do in Jaipur at night. The experience will remain in your mind and heart forever.
1. Watch the Light and Sound Show at Amber Fort
Also called Amer Fort, this magnificent structure was built in 16th century by Maan Singh, a trusted general of Akbar. Though Amber fort remains abuzz with tourists the entire day, the feel is entirely different at night. With dawn, the fort lightens up and is a sight to behold. A 50-minute sound and light show is the main attraction during the evening hours. We recommend visiting the fort on a full moon night when a Kathak performance is held at the Diwan-e-Khaas.
