In Jaipur
To See
(1) Jantar Mantar, Amber Fort, Hawa Mahal, City Palace.
(2) Try Chokhi Dhani for traditional dances and food, though all the things are prominently artificial. Nevertheless, you will have the essence of Rajasthaanee culture and food. It is about 20 kms from the center of Jayapur. They serve buffet dinner, cost included with the entry tickets. It is an hour's drive in the outskirts of the city. The ticket we bought included a meal which you eat sitting on the ground and are lovingly served by their staff who can't feed you enough of the Raajasthaanee meal.... To go there take a taxi, because the public transport of Jayapur might not match one's schedule. You need not pay for the puppet or dance shows. There will be extra charges for camel or elephant rides. Visit this site too

(3) Chand Boari, Step-well - 1000 year old engineering wonder
This is sheer engineering wonder..... without modern day instruments. ...
Chand Boari is a famous step-well situated in the village Abhaneri near Jayapur in Indian state of Raajasthaan. It is a very big well with flights of steps on three sides, is a 10th century monument situated in Abhaneri. It is a fine example of the architectural excellence prevalent in the past.  This impressive step well is as deep as a seven story building. The famous Harshat Maataa Temple is situated opposite to this well shows that there must have been a religious connection with this step-well. The well is 35 meters on each side with steps leading down from each side and water can be drawn from any level. It has so many steps that it is impossible for someone to retrieve a coin once it 's been dropped in the well.
