Popularly known as the Pink City of Rajasthan, Jaipur is a destination with varied hues! Its romantic charm and rich cultural heritage makes it a big hit with travelers. It is called the Pink City because all the buildings here are painted in pink and there is a history behind it.  In the year 1876, the Prince of Wales and Queen Victoria visited Jaipur on a tour. The colour pink symbolizes hospitality so the then ruler of Jaipur, Maharaja Ram Singh got the entire city painted in pink to welcome the guests. The tradition has been maintained since then.

Jaipur, the largest city of Rajasthan, was founded by the great warrior king Sawai Jai Singh II in 1727 and was planned perfectly by Vidyasagar, a Bengali architect, on the principles of Shilpa Shastra (an ancient Indian text on architecture). Its glorious history beautifully reflects in its royal palaces, majestic forts, interesting monuments, opulent heritage hotels, colourful handicrafts, delicious cuisine, magnificent fairs and festivals.
