Knocksense: A local content and recommendations platform

Often, when people say that a city is just the most vibrant and culturally elaborate, it tends to be a ruse. With Jaipur, the Pink City, however, this actually holds true. Blending in dying art forms with new age developments, the city is one that is stuck between eras. However, if you really want to get a feel of the vibe of Jaipur, then check out these lesser known places, once you're done with the mainstream stuff.

Chandi Ki Taksal

The name may catch you off guard, but don't fret, because this is something that you can't miss. If you can wake up at the crack of dawn, then head over to Hawa Mahal and catch the vibrant, colourful and aromatic flower market. Here, you can immerse yourself in a beautiful world of flowers of all kinds and have an experience that not everyone can say they've had.

Surajmal Rampratap Khilonewale

If you were looking for some quirky, offbeat things to take back home, head over to this quaint little shop nestled in the walled city. The hand-crafted wooden 'khilone' are actually more than just that- they're relics of a craft long forgotten. You can help by reviving the fire, taking something back home and telling your friends all about it.

Where: 168, J.D.A. Market, Jaipur, Rajasthan

Kanota Dam

For a more serene and a peaceful experience, head to Kanota Dam. Block out the bad vibes and immerse yourself in the soothing, calming sound of still water, something that's really hard to come by in this day and age. Expect loads of scenic views here if you go at sunset and enjoy a walk with a loved one along the dam.

Galta Temple

Head back to the city for a while and pay a visit to this ancient temple and worship the old gods. Well known for its 7 natural springs, it is a hit with the locals as well as the tourists. Since it is not that much of a tourist hub, you can expect a nice, peaceful time while you're here and just take in the echoes of the past.

Central Park

While you're in the city, do check out Central Park. By no means an offbeat location, it is one that allows you to have an experience of your own. Go see the several impressive architectural structures all around. What's offbeat here is the experience rather than the destination itself- mainly because everyone has a different time here.

Knock Knock

This list just barely scrapes the iceberg when it comes to things to see and do in Jaipur. The city is teeming with life, vibrance and culture at every corner- all you need to do is explore to see it all unveiled.
