Jaipur is known for its forts and palaces, and the most famous fort in the vicinity is the Amber Fort. Also commonly known as the Amer Fort, this majestic building with its maze-like passages and serpentine staircases is a very popular tourist attraction. Overlooking the Maota Lake, the fort is big enough that it will take you at least two to three hours to explore it in detail, and you can also choose to avail of the audio guides to lead you through this fascinating building while explaining the history of the place.

The Tarzan Way Volunteer in Jaipur (Create an impact) Reviews

Beautiful Jaipur

I have been to India twice before having been to a yoga course and for a music festival in Goa. This time I wanted to do something very different. I spend 4 weeks in Jaipur which is Rajasthan. I had heard a lot about Rajasthan before with its beautiful cities, forts, sand dunes and handicrafts. The tales were much less than what I saw, The culture that I experienced during my volunteer work and travel in this state was amazing. Huge, century old forts, the most beautiful and creative handicrafts, delicious food, friendly people. This state is probably the most varied and beautiful place in the world. I visited a lot of cities including Udaipur, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Ajmer while I was hosted in Jaipur where I undertook volunteering work. Overall it was an amazing experience and even better than how I envisioned it. Lots of thanks to everyone in the ttw team and the friends I made who made this experience so good.
