Witnessing a sunset seems to be one of the most sought experiences among travelers across the world. This explains why sunset points are extremely popular. In India, almost all popular hill stations have sunset points. Although sunrise is equally delightful, most people find it difficult to rise early to witness its glory. Here in Jaipur, the charm of a Sunset point seems to grow every day. A couple of years ago, I wrote a post on the most popular sunset point in Jaipur- Nahargarh Fort.

Here are the best sunset points in Jaipur.

As explained above, Nahargarh Fort was not so popular as sunset point in Jaipur, a couple of years ago. Owing to its popularity, the authorities have presently developed a sunset point in one of the sections of Nahargarh Fort.
This dedicated space allows one to enjoy an immersive sunset experience. The popularity of Nahargarh Fort is soaring because it is conveniently reachable by road. Read Nahargarh Fort, the best sunset place in Jaipur?
2. Sun Temple
Sun Temple or Surya Mandir, in my opinion, offers a spiritual sunset experience in Jaipur in comparison to Nahargarh Fort. It cannot be described in words; it is something to be experienced.
Sun Temple is historic. It is more than 250 years old. Do note accessibility of Sun Temple is not as good as Nahargarh Fort as it involves a small hike. Read A fascinating sunset at Sun Temple
3. Statute Circle
Statute Circle is definitely not a sunset point in Jaipur. Most residents would never connect it with a sunset. Here is a picture of a sunset at Statue Circle I captured with a Smartphone.
However, if you are fortunate, it offers an amazing sunset experience. The best part of a sunset at Statute Circle is that it is strategically located in the heart of the city.

Jaigarh Fort is one of the unknown places for sunset in Jaipur. A couple of places in the fort allow a stunning sunset view. The first one is near Jaivan, the largest cast iron and the other is at the remotest end of the fort.
