The first book of its kind, 10 Easy Walks gives the tourist a chance to explore the close quarters of Jaipur and to discover the city's architectural beauty, its havelis and temples, its carefully preserved heritage, its culture and crafts. The streets of Jaipur are crowded and lively and there is much to see and delight in: the marble statue-maker, the dyer, the printer, the bangle-seller, the mithaiwala, the artist and the jeweler. 10 Easy Walks is a guide to a Jaipur that encompasses far more than the usual tourist attractions of Amber Fort and Hawa Mahal.
