The Golden Triangle Tour (Part 3: Jaipur): Pink City of India


Jaipur - DesertJaipur, the capital of Rajasthan is the gem in the crown of royal Rajasthan. It is the best showcase of the royal grandeur that Rajasthan is famed for all over India and the world.
Jaipur CityThe city of Jaipur was founded in 1727 by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II who ruled from 1699–1744; initially his capital was Amber, which lies at a distance of 11 km from Jaipur. He felt the need of shifting his capital city with the increase in population and growing scarcity of water. The King consulted several books on architecture and architects before making the layout of Jaipur. Finally under the architectural guidance of Vidyadhar Bhattacharya Jaipur came into existence on the classical basis of principles of Vastu Shastra and similar classical treatise.
Jaipur is one of the most popular tourist destination in Rajasthan and the last city on the golden triangle tour. Jaipur city is popularly called as the Pink City because of pink painted buildings. The city is dotted with various attractions in form of royal palaces, forts & fortresses and havelis.
The major places of interest in Jaipur are:
City Palace complex
Jaipur City PalaceIt is unique and arresting complex of several palaces, pavilions, gardens and temples. The most visited structures in the complex are the Chandra Mahal, Mubarak Mahal, Mukut Mahal, Maharani’s Palace and the City Palace Museum. The architecture inside the complex is an excellent example of Rajput and Mughal architecture.
Jantar Mantar

Hawa Mahal

During the Sepoy revolt of 1857, Nahargarh served as a refuge for Europeans fleeing from the havoc created by mutineers in neighboring states.
