The Pink city, along with occasional rain showers, welcomed a record number of tourists over the weekend. The charismatic Amber Fort attracted to it tourists in droves on Saturday and Sunday, with a total of 9200 travelers gathering to explore the famous hill fort. Jaipur’s Nahargarh Fort also saw a rise in tourist footfalls, with 4100 visitors enjoying the stunning views of the city from its ramparts on Sunday.
As the desert city turned green, travelers flocked to the monuments to watch the dust on the walls wash away, and see the manicured gardens brighten up. People from the nearby cities such as Delhi, Haryana, and Uttar Pradesh are returning to explore the vibrancy of Jaipur. The lightning bolt that struck Amer Fort about 20 days ago, claiming the lives of around 11 visitors, has failed to keep down the spirits of those wanting to take in the beauty of the fort in the monsoons.
Last weekend, Jaipur saw the highest influx of visitors since the lockdown restrictions were relaxed on June 16.
