Monsoon is a great time for weekend trips and short vacations to witness the beauty of nature in its full glory. As Rajasthan is adorned with so many lakes and the majestic Aravali Hills, the state is a treat to the eyes when it starts to rain. Jaipur is one such place in the land of Kings where you can enjoy the charm of monsoon.
To further give you a clearer idea, here is the list of places to visit in Jaipur during monsoon so as to enjoy the pleasant views of the city drenched in rain waters.
Situated in the midst of Mansagar Lake, Jal Mahal is an extremely magnificent sight that would fill your soul with happiness and mind with calmness. The panoramic view of the lake against the backdrop of Aravali Hills is something that you won’t be able to resist. Take a stroll on the shore, enjoy masala papad, feed the fish, enjoy the breeze caressing your face and leave all your worries behind for a while.
The Maota Lake located at the feet of Amer Fort is so beautiful and serene that it cannot be described in words. Whether you are a nature lover or a born photographer, spend your evening by the lakeside and capture mesmerizing sights with ease. Here you will be able to enjoy the marvelous architecture of the fort combined with the alluring charm of the natural beauty reflected by the hills.
It’s a lake that dates back to the 17th Century during which it served as a primary source of water for the adjoining forts of Amer and Jaigarh. You can reach here by your own vehicle and then take a walk along the boundary of the lake. It’s divided into two parts and was designed in a way that it was connected to several step wells in the region which automatically got filled up when it overflowed in the rains.
Charan Mandir is a beautiful temple situated in the forest area of Nahargarh. It offers a magnificent view of the jungle if you climb on the top of the temple. An old styled building amidst the lush green vegetation is a perfect spot to spend a monsoon evening. Also, you can trek further from the temple and at a distance of 2 kms, you will find “Hathiyon Ka Kund” with a beautiful seasonal waterfall.
Galtaji Temple is an ancient structure guarded by the Aravali Hills and lush green vegetation. It contains natural freshwater springs and 7 holy kunds. A ping of holy water flows from ‘Gaumukh’, a rock shaped like a cow’s head. It is constructed of pink sandstone and looks more like a palace or Haveli.
It’s also famous for the several kinds of monkeys that reside in the nearby jungles. The place looks even more beautiful during rains when the kunds overflow with water and the greenery adds even more serenity to the sight.
