Le Méridien Jaipur Resort & Spa is on the Golden Triangle route that connects Jaipur to New Delhi and Agra. Our resort is 32 kilometres away from Jaipur International Airport (JAI), and the historic Pink City is easily accessible.
Jaipur is home to the most extravagant and elaborate palaces in the country, built by the princes of Rajasthan over the past millennia. The most famous is the Amber Fort, located less than 6 kilometres from the resort, it is a stunningly ornate range of palaces built from 957 to 1592, and modified for nearly 150 years afterward. The original glorious white-marble Amber Fort is connected to the present Jaigarh Fort through secret passages.
The Hawa Mahal, or “Palace of the Wind,” was built in 1799 as a pleasure palace for the Emperor’s considerable harem—he wished to entertain them by allowing them to observe daily activities without the risk of their being seen by outsiders, thus its appearance. The palace looks like a screen to protect the identities of the royal ladies.
In November, the Pushkar Camel Fair comes to Ajmer near Jaipur, bringing with it the essence of the rich colours and animals of Rajasthan and the surrounding desert. A Fair Village is built upon the shifting sands of the desert. Camels, donkeys, and bulls are raced and traded, and vendors sell exotic goods from fruits to saris to jewellery. Farmers and tourists from distant Indian states come to proudly display their cattle and handcrafts.
