Sunrise Point in Jaipur | Garh Ganesh Temple

I have written about easily accessible sunrise points in Jaipur in my earlier post. I had mentioned that I’ll be detailing out more place to see sunrise in Jaipur. In this post, I’m moving ahead where one needs to climb up through steep staircase to reach the sunrise point. I recently visited another sunrise place in Jaipur – Garh Ganesh temple to witness a stunning Jaipur sunrise. You can find all my earlier post about Garh Ganesh Temple Jaipur here. Garh Ganesh temple is a well known landmark since it predates Jaipur and is easily visible from old city area. It’s the oldest and famous Ganesha Temple in Jaipur.

I reached the starting point of the steps that lead to Garh Ganesh Temple prior to the sunrise. It was still dark. These steps are well lit even during the night.

One has an option to choose between tough and easy stairs which leads to the Garh Ganesh temple. The short one is the original path. It gives you a good cardio workout. On the flip-side, it’s steep.

Arduous old path that lead to garh Ganesh Temple.

Option two is what most people choose. Its a later addition; long but easy to traverse. Another advantage of choosing the former is that it allows you to enjoy the great views of Jaipur.

With dark clouds dominating the horizon, there was no option but to wait for some more time…….. for the Sun to make an appearance. When the sun made its appearance, the sky looked unusually beautiful. This picture resembles a nuclear blast in the making!

Ain’t this sunrise beautiful? Friday Skywatch


It was not just the sunrise that was beautiful. The view of the sun rising with an expansive view of Jal Mahal, Mansagar lake and Kanak Ghati was stunning. Here is another picture which captures this magnificent landscape.

After enjoying views for some time, it was time to head back. Taking a different path and a bit of off-road and I was back at the base. Garh Ganesh Temple is not open during sunrise. The sunrise point at Garh Ganesh Temple is area facing the city. I shot this picture of Garh Ganesh temple from sunrise point. This should help you reach the sunrise point. You don’t have to enter the Garh Ganesh Temple.
