I recently came to know that many people are quite keen to experience the magic of a sunrise in Jaipur. People are on a hunt for the best sunrise points in Jaipur and includes tourists on a visit to Jaipur, resident nature lovers, youth, to name a few.
Having witnessed many sunrises in Jaipur, I thought of compiling this post for everyone’s benefit.
Have you read: Is Nahargarh Fort Best Sunset Point in Jaipur?
Some of the best places to witness a sunrise in Jaipur are not easily accessible to everyone since it involves an element of adventure, unpaved path, thorny bushes, and risk of wild animals among other things. While some people are fit and ready to undertake such adventure, others may not be in a position to do so. I’m refraining from listing such places for the reasons of safety.
At sunrise everything is luminous but not clear. It is those we live with and love and should know who elude us. You can love completely without complete understanding.

Following are the most popular places to witness the magic of a sunrise in Jaipur.
Nahargarh Fort is clearly the most popular place in Jaipur to enjoy the beauty of a sunrise. It’s not surprising why it is so. Apart from sunrise, you can enjoy the beautiful view of the city since it is perched over a hill overlooking the city.

The sunrise point in Nahargarh Fort is on the east face near the Baori. Nahargarh Sunrise Point is close to the Baori where famous song Masti ki Pathshala from Bollywood movie Rang De Basanti was filmed. It’s referred as Rang De Basanti shooting point or location.
Watchout– There is a significant distance and time involved in reaching Nahargarh Fort from the city. If you are a tourist, pick up service for your return journey might be an issue as transport options are absent at Nahargarh Fort. Nahargarh Fort is one of the most popular hangout places for the city youth. Being a popular place for youth, don’t expect peace. Youth brigade has their own style of enjoying. Loud music, people running & making noises is all a part and parcel of the “Nahargarh Sunrise Experience”. Don’t be surprised to find a huge crowd at Nahargarh Sunrise point even before the sunrise.
Rash driving, tripling on a two-wheeler, speeding are all part of this package!
Nahargarh Fort and the road leading from Kanak Ghati has a reputation for being biggest open-air Bar in Jaipur. It’s corroborated with the empty beer cans, broken liquor bottles, plastic wrappers of “Chakhna” littering the entire stretch of the road side, all along.
With little presence of police or law enforcement, people consume beer and liquor right in the morning. Watching the sunrise with loud music being played around or being run over by a speeding vehicle is not really my idea and this usually keeps me away from the Nahargarh Fort Sunrise.

Jal Mahal or Water Palace at Mansagar lake
Jal Mahal or Water Palace is another popular sunrise point in Jaipur. What makes it so popular? The proximity to the main city is definitely one reason. Also the sunrise is clearly seen from Jal Mahal as this is where the eastern hill range ends. One gets an uninterrupted view of the rising Sun. The entire setting is beautiful. There’s no extra effort involved in terms of driving, time or hill drive. For the tourists, services of app based service provider like Uber and Ola is also available.
The sunrise. Sun never sets. It shines in another part of the world. . . . #sharetravelpics #traveler #inspiredtraveller #onepointperspective #landscapestyles_gf #wanderlust #sunrise #ig_photooftheday #ig_treasures #photographers_of_india #worldbestsky #tv_allskies #world_skyshotz #skylovers #love_all_sky #sky_captures #best_skyshots #ig_skysun #instajaipur #jaipur #jaipurdiaries #follow #travelshots #tagsforlike #jaipurthrumylens #passionpassport #instalike #likeforlike #l4l #followhim

Watchout – It’s never crowded at Jal Mahal during this hour but you might come across group of boys residing in the vicinity using language which is far from desirable. Chances of such experiences occurring during morning hours are less likely, though. Sometimes, stench from the water might be a turn off. Many people dump bread, biscuit, and wheat dough in the lake to feed fishes. Although they might be doing so for earning good Karma but it ends up polluting the lake.
