Day 6 Experiencing India – Royal Abodes

India > Day 6 Experiencing India – Royal Abodes

Amber Fort

We woke up early, excited for the Day 6 Experiencing India activities. After eating breakfast, some of us loaded in jeeps and headed to Amber Fort. Constructed in 1037, this awe-inspiring fort stands approximately 12 km away from Jaipur, a part of India’s Golden Triangle (Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur). Raja Man Singh built it.

The sun gate is the main gate to this fort and is quite extraordinary. The allure of this stunning building had us completely entranced. We then took our time to explore every nook and cranny. Each step we took felt like a privileged journey through time.

We listened intently to the whispered tales that had unfolded within these beautifully crafted walls. It was a magical experience, feeling connected to the history and the people who once thrived in this remarkable place.

According to popular belief, one should descend using different stairwells than the ones used for ascending. Leaving us with a mystery about how they navigated the fort.

City Palace | Day 6 Experiencing India

We had lunch at the Trident Hotel. Then it was time to explore the City Palace. This is the center of Jaipur, and it took four years to build, as the tour guides said. They host religious services and events here all year round.

A lot of the locals travel here daily to pray to their Gods. After our temple exploration, we had the delightful opportunity to ride in a Rik Sha operated by an all-women company. The community looks down upon this because, in the Indian culture, being a driver is considered a man’s job. However, riding in these beautiful, strong-willed women’s Rikshaw was an honor.

Dinner on Day 6 Experiencing India

We had dinner at our hotel that evening, hosted by the owner of Greaves Travel, the organization we used for this Fam trip. Also, the hosts’ names are Mr. & Mrs. Shahrookh Cambata. Moreover, they celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary that evening, and we had a lovely time celebrating with them.

Furthermore, we got to see the tent that the hotel surprised them with and had dinner right outside of it. Moreover, there was cake, drinks, and many shared laughs! Lastly, after dinner, they presented us with the custom-made clothing we had tailored, and each piece was incredibly stunning!

We can definitely wear it at the Taj Mahal and have a fancy photoshoot! Ultimately, it was a very memorable Day 6 Experiencing India for us.
