 Despite being the capital city of Rajasthan, the people of the city are very conservative and do discriminate in terms of caste and religion.

You can either go for PGs or can contact brokers who can get you a flat without getting into the trouble of negotiating it yourself.

 There’s no nightlife in the city, so it’s difficult to plan something after work. Shops and markets close by 9pm so better you stock in everything you might need. You can instead enjoy weekends exploring the nooks of the heritage rich city.

• The waiting period for a public transportation vehicle is about 20-40 mins, which is quite a bit for working people. Instead, you can look out for sharing vehicles or pool in with colleagues to hire an app based cab to your workplace.

Apart from work and everything, the city as it is known, is rich in its heritage. In free time you can explore things that tourists can’t, given the restriction of time.
