Jaipur, founded by Maharaja Jai Singh, is
the capital of Rajasthan and populary known as Pink City. It
is a major attraction for the tourists. Jaipur is surrounded
on all sides by rugged hills, crowned with forts & enclosed
by embattled walls.
The whole city was painted in Pink colour by Maharaja Man
Singh II when Prince of Wales, later Edward VII, visited
Jaipur in 1876 AD. Jaipur is a royal city.
Jaipur & its surroundings are rather like an endless museum.
The city also offers an endless variety of crafts. Jewellers
here still fashion the beautiful enamel-on-gold pendants,
studded on the reverse with precious stones or pearls &
turquoise that one sees in miniature paintings. Jaipur's
lacquer bangles are famous all over the world. This is a
city to be visited.
