Jaipur is named the pink city, but it is no less than the golden land. To be honest, I’ve traveled to lots of places but I have never witnessed a sunset like Jaipur anywhere.
Are you looking for some picturesque Jaipur viewpoints or places to go for sunset in Jaipur? Here are our top 7 best Jaipur sunset points and locations in Jaipur.
Amer Fort is one of the most popular attractions and sites in Jaipur. It consists of spectacular ramparts, a series of alluring gateways and arches, and architecturally brilliant towers and courtyards. But, did you know that the Amer Fort also offers one of the best Jaipur viewpoints to watch the sunset? Get on the top of the fort at the time of sunset and get drenched in the golden pink rays of the setting sun.
JAIPUR WALL (AMER WALL WATCH TOWER):
Located opposite the Amer Fort is one of the most photogenic walls that I have ever encountered in my travels. This sandstone wall extends along the Aravalli Mountains, which once provided the first life of defense against invaders. These days, the Jaipur Wall is a famous sunset point in Jaipur for locals and travelers alike.
Another one of Jaipur’s prominent fortifications is the mighty Nahargarh Fort. This fort sits on the hills just above the city of Jaipur and also has an impressive wall lookout point. Nahargarh Fort is one of the best since its walls and viewpoints are free to access and provide unparalleled views of the city of Jaipur from above.
The Jal Mahal is another of Jaipur’s epic attractions that definitely should be on your list of things to see in the city. While it is not possible for everyone to get a boat tour to the Jal Mahal to explore its interior, it’s just as beautiful when observed from the banks of the lake.
The Sun Temple or Surya Mandir as the locals call it. It’s only fitting then that it’s also one of the best Jaipur viewpoints to watch the sunset at. This temple is part of the Galta Ji temple complex, which is also on the same road leading to the Sun Temple. This temple is a little off the regular tourist beat. So, if you’re looking to see Jaipur from a unique perspective, make sure to head to this epic temple viewpoint!
PANNA MEENA KA KUND (JAIPUR STEPWELL)
This next item on my list of the best sunset points in Jaipur doesn’t offer the same landscapes and backdrops as many of the others. However, the Jaipur Stepwell, or Panna Meena Ka Kund, is a popular attraction, which is again, located in Amer. If you’ve been meaning to check it out, then I highly recommend heading to the Jaipur Stepwell for sunset. This will help you capture the best shadows and light bouncing off the symmetrical steps of the stepwell.
