How to get to Patrika Gate Jaipur
Patrika Gate is located at the entrance to Jawahar Circle Jaipur. It’s roughly a 25 minute drive from the centre of Jaipur Pink City. We took a rickshaw from Bani Park which cost us 400 Rupees ($8AUD) for a return trip and the driver waited for an hour while we took photos.
Where to stay
There are a variety of Jaipur accommodation options in many different areas and also ranging in price. Bani Park is the most popular area for tourists to stay in Jaipur. We decided to stay close to the train station at Nahar Singh Haveli and found it was away from the busy streets and in a nice quiet area which was perfect.
