Jaipur is one city everybody wants to visit. From the beautiful architecture to the local cuisine, Jaipur has a lot to offer to tourists. From visiting Hawa Mahal to the beautiful Amer Fort, Jaipur is also a one-stop destination for shopaholics. While its always amusing to revisit the Pink City, Ministry of Tourism has announced 'night tourism' in Jaipur.
The first phase of the night tourism project ensuring illumination of the walled city in Rajasthan has been completed and was launched late in night by Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje. This phase covers Chaura Rasta, Tripolia Gate and New Gate in the city, while work in the remaining areas is in progress.
The second phase of the project involves the lighting of Tripolia Bazar, Chandpole Gate and Ajmeri Gate. Johari Bazar, Sanganeri Gate and Hawa Mahal shall be taken up in the third phase.
The Ministry of Tourism, the government of India, under the Heritage Circuit of Swadesh Darshan Scheme has sanctioned the project and approved the budget of Rs. 31 crores for the same.
The Department of Archaeology and Museums has been appointed as the executive agency for carrying out the project. The illumination work includes the external façade lighting of Johari Bazar, Tripolia Bazar and Chaura Rasta.
Besides, all the historical gates like Sanganeri Gate, New Gate, Ajmeri Gate, Tripolia Gate, Chandpole Gate and Hawa Mahal have also been taken up in the project where external lighting would be done.
