Jaipur, formerly known as Jeypore, is a captivating city that serves as the capital and largest metropolis of the Indian state of Rajasthan. With its population soaring to 3.1 million in 2011, Jaipur proudly stands as the tenth most populous city in India. Known affectionately as the Pink City, it owes this moniker to the enchanting hue that blankets its buildings, emanating a sense of charm and beauty unparalleled elsewhere. Often hailed as the Paris of India, it exudes an air of grandeur and sophistication that captivates all who visit.
Notably, C.V. Raman referred to Jaipur as the Island of Glory, further attesting to its magnificence. Situated approximately 268 kilometers (167 miles) from New Delhi—the national capital—Jaipur is steeped in rich history and cultural significance. Established by Jai Singh II—a Kachhwaha Rajput ruler—in 1727, this regal city was meticulously designed by Vidyadhar Bhattacharya and became one of modern India’s earliest planned cities.
During British colonial rule, Jaipur served as the capital of Jaipur State before becoming Rajasthan’s esteemed seat after independence in 1947. Its prominence extends beyond borders since it forms an integral part of India’s west Golden Triangle tourist circuit alongside Delhi and Agra—an awe-inspiring distance spanning 240 kilometers (149 miles).
Embarking on a Jaipur Sightseeing Tour is like stepping into a mesmerizing world of architectural wonders. As you wander through the enchanting streets, the vibrant hues of pink buildings transport you to another era. With its recent inscription as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Jaipur proudly showcases its rich history and cultural heritage. Don’t miss exploring Amer Fort and Jantar Mantar, two magnificent sites that add to the city’s undeniable charm.
