This is a lovely example of old India architecture and is the entrance to the Pink City itself. Was originally part of an old wall Really only a photo opportunity, lots of traffic going in and out so unable to get a close look, but you will certainly see it when doing a City Tour, as well as the other...

Chand pol marks the entrance to the pink city in jaipur. It's a big gate with three entrances and it covers almost while of the road. Vehicles will prefer to move through the middle road. Busy market streets are after this gate. It's an example of the royal architectural excellence. People who visit jaipur often make multiple visits through this... More

This high, pink gate to Old Jaipur shows off lovely Raiput architecture. It went into the city wall centuries ago as the Western entrance to Jaipur and is one of the few gates left here. We passed through in a car with myriad vehicles in front and behind us, from tricycle rickshaws to pickup trucks. Many were likely on their... More

This gate marks the entry point to the pink city or the heritage part from the modern Jaipur. The gate covers the entire road but traffic flows through the middle part and auto rickshaw and tuk tuks are parked in the sides. A nice architecture in the entry point of the old city.

An imposing structure, Chand Pol offers spectacular views of the famed old bazaar and glimpses of the Rajasthani culture. The gate was the entry gate in the western part of the walls that used to surround Jaipur to protect its inhabitants from animal attacks at... More

Chand Pol (Moon Gate) is one of the gates to enter the old city of Jaipur. There is no reason to change one's itinerary to stop at this gate more than at the others, but they are well maintained and look welcoming. I like their colours and decorations.

Definitely there is nothing so special about this Gate that one should specially take trouble to include this in itinerary. Jaipur was a planned city and was protected by raising a wall all around the city. There were 7 gates in the wall (parkota)- Chandpole Surajpole Ajmeri gate Sanganeri gate Ghat gate Samrat gate Zorawar Singh Gate The Eighth Gate,... More
