India’s “Pink City” was already a famed tourist destination, known for its salmon-hued palaces, colorful festivals and intricate craftwork. But this year, in a bid to boost tourism, Jaipur launched the “Night Sky Tourism” initiative, which provides visitors free access to telescopes to view stars, planets and other celestial bodies. At the heart of this venture is Jantar Mantar, an astronomical observatory and UNESCO World Heritage Site that houses the world’s largest stone sundial. There are also new luxe lodging options from hospitality group Leela Palaces, whose Leela Palace Jaipur features private plunge pools and personal butlers, and Six Senses, which is set to open a wellness center and resort in Fort Barwara, a refurbished 14th century fortification. —Abhishyant Kidangoor
