Amber Fort, Jaipur

The Charming Capital City of Rajasthan

Jaipur is the first planned city of India which was founded by Maharaja Jai Singh II in the 18th century. The city was carefully planned and built according to the ancient Hindu treatise on architecture.

Apart from being a diplomatic warrior, Jai Singh had interests in astronomy. The amazing observatory, Jantar Mantar was built by him.

Jaipur in Rajasthan is enveloped by rugged hills and enclosed within a wall that has seven gates. Within these walls are some of the finest examples of Rajasthani and Mughal architecture. The Old City is also known as the "Pink City" as the entire city was painted pink on the orders of Maharaja Man Singh II when the Prince of Wales visited Jaipur in 1876, as pink is the color of festivity in Jaipur.
