We’ll guide you through the must-visit attractions for your one day in Jaipur journey and the best places to savour delicious food.

Guide for One Day in Jaipur

Best Time to Visit Jaipur

We visited Jaipur in November last year, and it was an experience that can’t be justified in words. The beauty of Jaipur can be experienced between November to March, as the weather in these months is suitable for a comfortable trip. The weather in these months can range between 8 degrees Celsius during nights to 32 degrees Celsius during the day.

If you plan your visit after these months, we must warn you about the Jaipur Summers that are extremely hot, and sightseeing isn’t very joyful in these months.

During this time, the weather in Jaipur is just right for exploring its rich history, lively culture, and old landmarks. The winter months give you a chance to see places like the Amber Fort, City Palace, and Hawa Mahal without it being too hot. Plus, there are fun festivals like Diwali and the Kite Festival happening around this time, making your visit even more exciting. 

Oh, before we forget, we also were lucky enough to see the Diwali festival in Jaipur. It was like we were totally in a different place, all people in full mood of the festival, the markets were all decorated and filled with Diwali crackers and other items. It was a great experience and we would highly suggest you get the same experience.
