Lesser Known Destinations around Jaipur

Abhaneri :
Location :
Abhaneri is located within the Dausa district and lies at a distance of 90 kms. from Jaipur.
History : There are various intricately carved sculptures and temples. One look at the carved sculptures reflects the richness of culture and tradition of Abhaneri. Abhaneri has also been a victim of Muslim invasions.
Main Attractions : Abhaneri is famous for two fine monuments of architectural significance 'Harshat Mata temple and 'Chand Baori'.
There is a huge tank (Chand Baori) opposite the temple fortified on all four sides with bastions for defence. Although Abhaneri is now in ruins, the place has a distinct nostalgia about itself.
