#53 of 373 in Things to do in Jaipur
See Diwan-e-Khas Hall of Private Audience, a place where the ancient Mughal emperors received courtiers and state guests in the Red Fort. Observe the architecture of the interior which consists of a rectangular central chamber, encircled by an array of arches rising from marble piers. The ceiling was originally inlaid with silver and gold, but was stripped bare when financial crises occurred in the empire. The throne of Mughals emperors once stood here. Read the inscribed verse of Amir Khusrow--‘If there be a paradise on earth, it is this, it is this, it is this.’ It was restored after it was plundered in the Indian Rebellion of 1857.

Where to stay in Jaipur

With a big selection of budget and mid-range hotels, Jaipur serves as an ideal base for exploring the surrounding area. Many taxi and rickshaw drivers aggressively push their choice of hotels on unwitting tourists--if you refuse their suggestions, they might double the fare. To avoid this inconvenience, book your room ahead and call the hotel to arrange for a pickup--many offer shuttle services to and from the train and bus station.
