Free-time activities

On this project we have a lot to do on weekends because of the location of the city Jaipur. This comes under the most famous travel circuit 'Golden Triangle' that covers Delhi-Jaipur-Agra. The project is situated in a very famous city, ‘The Pink City’ Jaipur, Rajasthan. The city has its heritage value & has more than 20 heritage sites like Hawa Mahal, Jantar Mantar, Albert Hall, Birla Temple, Jal Mahal, Nahargarh Fort, Jaigarh Fort, Amber Fort etc. So the Volunteers can visit the nearby places & all of these places are in the maximum radius of 15 kilometers from their stay. The City Jaipur is also in the center of the state Rajasthan and beautiful excursion sites are also nearby and accessible from public transportation like Buses, trains & private taxies. Volunteers can visit Pushkar (The Desert Safari), the only Brahma temple in the world and also can experience night stay in tents in desert while having dinner & the live folk dance. They can go to Ranthambhore for the classic ‘Tiger Safari’ on cantors. Another nearby options can be Bhangarh, the only haunted site approved by the government of Rajasthan. Udaipur ‘The Lake city’ can be another option to utilize the weekends. All the arrangements can be done by Aii on the volunteer’s request.
