The Rajput Clan has left an indelible imprint on the history of Rajasthan. The impact is now global with magic monuments of recent past and colorful vibrant culture. Yes that’s why people come to Jaipur also known as the pink city. It was once painted pink on a regent’s visit and remains so till now.
The city is named on its builder Sawai Jai Singh and it is now the capital of Indian State of Rajasthan. The most notable of the structure is the Hawa Mahal with honey comb architecture. This was especially built for the ladies of the court who could peep out without being seen.
The Nahargarh Fort earlier residence of Sawai Jai Singh II sits atop the hill top bordering the town. The marvelous Amber Fort and Jaigarh Fort dot the Aravalli Hill Range. The Amber Fort often described as Palace is the most popular tourist destination in Jaipur. For sightseeing there is much more, one should visit the famous Jantar Mantar observatory, Hindu temples, scores of Havelis, Palaces and Gardens.
The streets and folks of Jaipur reflect the glorious past. The maddening mélange and street side chaos are part and parcel of Jaipur Life. The smells and sounds of hectic bazaars, cows, stray dogs and food carts abound everywhere in the old city. The modern Jaipur is an expanse of beautiful broad roads, shopping malls, shopping centers, restaurants, star hotels and places of entertainment.
