[Optional : Visit to the Sherous Hangout Cafe] 


Day 04 - Drive to Jaipur

An early start this morning, but worth it for sunrise views of the Taj Mahal. It's also the quietest time to visit, before the crowds arrive. Return back to your hotel and drive to Jaipur (05-06 Hrs) where you would be visiting the abandoned city of Fatehpur Sikri enroute. Closer to Jaipur you would stop at the impressive 9th century step well at Abhaneri.
