This fascinating capital of the state of Rajasthan is one of the best-planned cities of its time. Jaipur was established by the then Maharaja, Sawai Jai Singh in the year 1927. Since the graceful architecture of the city features many buildings painted in pink, Jaipur became known as “The Pink City”. Besides the beautiful architecture, Jaipur’s musicians, artisans and craftsmen contribute to the wonderful athmosphere.
