Removals to Jaipur, India: Living in Jaipur
Jaipur is a heaving tourist destination where there will be always something to catch your eye. Whether it is the majestic palaces, stunning hilltops, beautiful temples, colourful bazaars, camel carts or the rickshaw drivers weaving their way through heavy traffic, this bustling city is set to fuel your imagination.
The city, with a population of just over 3 million, is known as the Paris of India or the Pink City. It gained its name as the ‘Pink City’ because it was painted terracotta pink when the Prince of Wales visited in 1879.
Jaipur is the capital of the desert state of Rajasthan which, by land mass, is the largest state in India. It was the first planned city and was designed following the principles of Shilpa Shastra, for the comfort and prosperity of those who live there.
If you are moving here, you will never be short of things to see or do, as there are numerous attractions to visit in Jaipur including forts, temples, palaces, gardens, museums, and street markets.
Removals to Jaipur, India: Places to Visit
There are so many places to visit in Jaipur it’s hard to find space to list them here, so here are a few of the city’s attractions.
Take a look at the incredible pink sandstone facade of the Hawa Mahal, or Palace of the Breeze, which was built by a maharaja in 1799 as part of the City Palace. It was built as an extension of the women’s chamber and the exterior is said to mirror a honeycomb. The windows and the balconies were designed so that the women could look out onto the street without being spotted by people outside the palace.
The City Palace is huge and the whole complex takes up about a seventh of the city. It is divided into buildings, gardens and courtyards and includes several majestic buildings including the Chandra Mahal where the current Maharaja lives.
If you enjoy visiting temples, the Marble Temple, or Lakshmi Narayan Temple is well worth a visit and is made of white marble. It has been built using the finest quality white marble and has many beautiful carvings.
Jaigarh Fort is another historic building and is said to hold the world’s largest cannon – the cannon was only fired once and the cannon ball was said to have shot as far as 35 km. You can enjoy scenic views from the fort.
If you like shopping, the market in the city centre is a must and has different zones, depending on what you want to buy.
Removals to Jaipur, India: Accommodation for Expats
If you are looking to move to Jaipur there are various housing options available to you and these include flat shares. Do make sure that your property has air conditioning as you will welcome this when you move in.
The best route to finding accommodation is by browsing the internet. There are also organisations ‘brokers’ that will help you find the right place and the fee for this is the equivalent to a month’s rent.
On average, the length of a lease period in India is 11 months and this time period can be extended; but it is important to arrange this in advance with your landlord as otherwise you can be legally evicted at the end of your lease. Deposits are also required and these can be negotiable.
