Wazirpur is a charming village on the main highway connecting Jaipur to Kota. The nearest town is Tonk, which is 36 Km from Wazirpur. The village is easily reached from the main highway to Kota from Tonk. About 27 km from Tonk is the village of Chhan. Turn off here for Sakna and Wazirpur.
It is only a small village, so can easily be covered on foot. Another lake near Wazirpur is a famous bird breeding ground.
The village is located on the shores of a beautiful lake, and has two traditional Hindu temples. The village people are still very simple; electricity was only introduced in 1992 and the village was connected to a road as late as 2005. It is a place where you can find traditional people, folk dancing and neat and clean mud brick houses.
A famous Jain temple is located in the nearby village of Sakna. The walk to Sakne from Wazirpur is very pleasant, passing a canel, a lake and fresh, green fields.
