The pink City and the capital of the state of Rajasthan
The Pink city of Jaipur is the capital of the Indian State of Rajasthan, famous forits forts, palaces, lakes, sand and colorful culture. The city extends from latitude 26.55 in the north and Longitude 75.52 east. Jaipur would have been part of the Thar desert but for the Aravalli hills that cover it from one side. It is just 258 kms away from the national capital Delhi and thus forms the third angle of the famous Golden triangle for the tourists apart from Delhi and Agra.
The City of Victory, Jaipur, was founded by Kachhawaha Rajput King, Maharaja Jai Singh II in 1727, who ruled from 1699 -1744. His took special interest in the designing, planning and execution of the making of this city. This has been divided into nine blocks, two of which were kept for the city palace and other state buildings. The rest were for the public. The city was encircled by a city wall and seven gates opened in to the city.
In 1728 maharaja Jai singh II built the observatory, still one of the main tourist attraction's of Jaipur. The old city of Jaipur has neat and broadly laid out avenues, all painted in pink thus giving a magical glow to the city in the evenings. Jaipur has what the most other Indian cities do not have, a combination of cultural and architectural beauty. This is evident in the various historical sites that dot the city. Amongst the most striking monument is the Hawa Mahal. As against the popular belief it is not actually a wind palace, but a sandstone screen, specially built for the ladies of the palace to watch the processions on the roads below, without being seen.
Jaipur is also famous for semi-precious stones and the best place to buy them is the Johari Bazar. Miniatures, handicrafts, clothes, Jewellery of silver and Lakh are the other items that can be bought in Jaipur.
