The Rock Garden of Chandigarh
Not what it seems, The Rock Garden of Chandigarh is actually a 40 acre park filled with sculptures made from recycled items. Built in secret, the park remained undiscovered for 18 years, until 1975, by which time it had grown into a vast labyrinth of interlinked courtyards punctuated with sculptures of people and animals.
This unmissable 100 acre site was designed by Le Corbusier and features an emotive Open Hand Monument: a symbol of peace and reconciliation designed in response to the partition of India in 1947. Also to be found within the complex are the Palace of Assembly, the Secretariat, the High Court, Geometric Hill, the Tower of Shadows and a lake.
Sukhna Lake is flanged by Chandigarh Golf Course and the Rock Garden of Chandigarh. Walkers can stroll and children can rollerskate along the promenade, while anglers catch fish and painters set up their canvases. A variety of watersports and boating can be enjoyed on Sukhna Lake. It is also the venue for numerous cultural festivals throughout the year
The Oberoi Rajvilās is a unique way to experience Jaipur, one of India’s most vibrant and exotic destinations. A visit to Jaipur unfolds with private excursions to its palaces, forts and bazaars. Set in 32 acres of landscaped gardens with pavilions and reflection pools, the hotel creates the romance and grandeur of Rajasthan.
Amber was the first royal residence of the Maharajas. Today it stands with magnificent glory and consists of complex palaces, halls, pavilions, gardens and temples built by Raja Man Singh, Mirza Raja Jai Singh and Sawai Jai Singh over a period of 125 years and completed in the 17th century. A visit to Amber is a must for any visitor to Jaipur.
Above Amber fort lies the Jaigarh fort. It is one of the few military structures of medieval India preserved almost intact. It contains palaces, gardens, open and covered reservoirs, a granary, an armory, a well planned cannon foundry, several temples and a tall tower. It also has a giant mounted cannon – the Jai Ban – one of the largest cannons in the country. While Amber was the royal residence, guarding it stood the military fortress of Jaigarh.
The former ruling family of Jaipur still lives in the Chandra Mahal or Moon Palace, now popularly known as the City Palace. The outer and the inner courtyard have been converted into a public museum. It houses an extensive collection of rare manuscripts, Mughal and Rajasthani miniatures, Mughal carpets, and other royal paraphernalia. A visit to the City Palace is highly recommended for any visitor to Jairpur.
