Location & Distance Chart
Jaipur, the picturesque capital of the largest state of India - Rajasthan, well known as Pink City all over the world, is color washed pink - the color associated with hospitality in Rajput culture. It is the eleventh largest city in India at present. Built in 1727 A.D. by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh JI, Jaipur displays a remarkable harmony and architectural splendor. The ancient heart of the Pink City still beats in its fairy-tale palaces, rugged fortresses perched on barren hills and broad avenues that dot the entire city. The only planned city of its time, Jaipur is encircled by a formidable wall.
A young Bengali architect, Vidyadhar Bhattacharya formalized the city’s plans in a grid system. The wide straight avenues, roads, streets, lanes and uniform rows of shops on either side of main bazaars were arranged in nine rectangular city sectors (Chaukris), in accordance with the principles of town planning set down in the ‘Shilpa Shastra’ - and epochal treatise on the Hindu architecture.
The abode of architectural marvels like the majestic City Palace, the splendid Jantar Mantar, the glorious Hawa Mahal, the history laced Amer Fort, Jaigarh Fort and Nahargarh Fort, the land of colorful festivities like Teej and Gangaur- the marvelous Jaipur, is a must-visit tourist destination on the itinerary of every travel buff. There is a timeless appeal to Jaipur’s colorful bazaars where one can shop for Rajasthani handlooms and trinkets. Beautifully laid out gardens and parks, attractive monuments and marvelous heritage hotels, once the residence of Maharaja’s are worth admiration. Not to mention the ambling camels and cheerful people in multi-hued costumes that make your trip to the pink city a memorable one.
