    I wish I read this post a few months ago when I went to Jaipur earlier this year as I missed some of these and would have been more than happy to visit these. The architecture of Jaipur is just so stunning and these temples certainly reflect it as well. I did visit Birla Mandir and even though it was very beautiful its more on the newer side vs some of the older once you have mentioned in this post. The one which FANCY MOST WOULD BE Khole Ke Hanuman Ji Temple. Thanks for sharing
