Jaipur
The 'Pink City', had been the capital of erstwhile Jaipur state since its inception in 1727 AD, named after its founder Sawai Jai Singh II in 1727 AD, who was not only a great ruler, but also a renowned mathematician and astrologer. His various talents are clearly exhibited in the city. Vidyadhar Bhattacharya, designed Jaipur as per the Hindu treatise, Shilp Shastra.
» About the rich heritage of the city : When you enter the city, the first major monument that greets you is the spectacular Hawa Mahal, or the Palace of Winds that provides some excellent views of the streets from its fifth floor. Just located behind it are Jantar Mantar, the unique observatory built by the founder of Jaipur - Sawai Jai Singh
and the city palace with its fabulous museum that display some of the most amazing treasures held by the Jaipur Royal family. A little further are the important temple
of Galta, the garden of Sisodia Rani and Vidhyadhar.

Samode
The small village of Samode is nestled among rugged hills about 50 km north of Jaipur, via Chomu. The only reason to visit is if you can afford to stay at the beautiful Samode Palace (although strictly speaking it's not actually a palace, as it wasn't owned by a ruler, but by one of his noblemen). Like the Samode Haveli in Jaipur, this building was owned by the Rawal of Samode. It's a beautiful building built on three levels, each with its own courtyard. The highlight of the building is the absolutely exquisite diwan-i-khas, which is completely covered with original paintings and mirror work, and improbably the finest example of its kind in the country. Unfortunately the palace is open only to guests, and public transport requires a change in Chomu.
 
Dausa
Dausa is situated, 54 km east of Jaipur. Dausa is an ancient town of archaeological importance. it is one of the erstwhile kingdoms of Kachhawah rulers of Dhundhar. An old fort and many havelis are located in and around Dausa. Some major tourist attractions are : Mataji Ka Mandir, Nilkanth Mahadev Temple, and a few shiva temple.
