Jaipur was built in 1727 by Maharaja Jai Singh, after whom it was named. Jaipur is a city which takes you back into the Rajputana dynasty with its grandeur, architectural splendor and vibrant colours. Red sandstones and intricate marble walls dot the walls of the whole city. Its most striking feature is the pink wash applied to the buildings, giving Jaipur its universal title, the 'Pink City'. Jaipur was and remains the only city in the world, symbolizing the nine divisions of the universe, through nine rectangular sectors sub-dividing it. Today, every home within the city is bound by law to maintain its facade. Jaipur is surrounded on all sides by rugged hills, crowned with forts making it a destination not to be excluded from your itinerary.
