Travel / Entertainment

On the event of World Tourism Day, entertainer Rahul Sharma who is initially from Dausa city, close Jaipur chooses to venture out and investigate the historical monuments of the city to remember his childhood and teenage days.

In the wake of wrapping up the shoot of his show Pyaar Ki Luka Chupi, Rahul selected to take a visit through Jaipur which appeared to be an ideal method to de-worry before returning to work once more. We got a chance to observe the entertainer satisfying his craving for new experiences.

Rahul Sharma remembered the recollections of Jaipur by visiting a portion of his preferred historical monuments on World Tourism Day.

Rahul visited Nahargarh Fort, Amber fortress, Jaigarh Fort, Albert Hall and Hawa Mahal. He caught the landmarks in his camera, took umpteen selfies and re-made his youth minutes.

“We all know that Jaipur is home to excellent specimens of Indian history and architecture. Every monument has a unique story to tell. I remember my early modelling days when I used to do theatre and modelling in Jaipur. As and when my friends and I got some free time in the evenings, we would go out to explore these places. Nahargarh used to be our favourite hangout place as it gives a stunning view of Jaipur from the top, especially when it’s lit up in the evening. We used to sit there for hours, play antakshari, sing and dance. Wish I could gather all my old friends and do this all over again.”

Monuments can transport one to a bygone era

“The city is known for its intriguing history and rich heritage; its historical monuments transport you to another era. While visiting these, I feel as if I also have a connection with the monuments-built ages ago. Be it the Albert Hall, which is a home to so many artefacts, sculpture, jewellery and even an Egyptian mummy,” says Rahul. Rahul also took a halt at the Hawa Mahal, which is a symbol of the desert state. “My visit to Jaipur is incomplete without a visit to Hawa Mahal. The façade which is inspired by Lord Krishna’s mukut has an enchanting charm. Some day, I plan to bring some of my friends from Mumbai to witness the beauty of these places,” closes down Rahul.
