after a boring conference day which ended at 5pm...we had three hours to catch up with jaipur...we thought may be we could do a couple of interesting places!! then the hotel staff informed us, that all tourist places close at 4:30 in jaipur!!
wow..so we had nothing to do and then suddenly someone said that the fort of Nahargarh is opened till 8pm...and we just told the cab guy to take us there...so we drove up a hill with some depleted road but nice views enroute to reach the Nahargarh fort....but the fort was closed...they told us that only one portion of fort which houses a cafe is opened till 8pm and its just a further away...we wanted to turn back..but on instinct went ahead to this cafe..
we were greeted at the parking of cafe with a ticket for cover charge of Rs 50....but let me tell you, it was the most useful 50 I ever spent!! when we reached the top of cafe..it was breathtakingky beautiful...the entire city of jaipur, the setting sun....the chilled beer, some Paneer pakodas!! and your day is made.....
