Sunrise Point in Jaipur/ Garh Ganesh Temple

In my earlier post, I have written about sunrise points in Jaipur which are easily accessible to everyone. I had mentioned that I’ll be detailing out more sunrise point in Jaipur. In this post, I’m moving ahead where one needs to climb up through steep staircase to reach the sunrise point. Earlier this week, I visited Garh Ganesh temple to witness a sunrise in Jaipur. I have already written  a bit about Garh Ganesh Temple in few posts.I have listed them all here. Garh Ganesh temple is a well known landmark since it predates Jaipur and can be seen from the 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.

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. It looked like a nuclear blast in the making!

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.

I’m still refraining from listing the sunrise points in Jaipur that are difficult to reach or involve some element of adventure as it might turn out to be mis-adventure! I’m sure people fit for the adventure will find it out themselves.
