About Jaipur

Jaipur is the biggest city and the capital of the state of Rajasthan. It's commonly known as the ‘Pink City' of India. The city was founded in 1727, on 18th November by the ruler of Amber, Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II. And the name of the city was inspired by Maharaja Jai Singh himself.

The city is well-planned, and perhaps the most well planned pre-modern Indian city. It is well divided, with a regular network of streets. It's also known for being a popular tourist destination in India, due to the rich culture found here, as well as the presence of a world heritage site: Jantar Mantar.

A fascinating aspect of Jaipur is that it is planned according to Vastu Shastra. The city was an opportunity for its founder to plan an entire city based on Hindu architectural theory.
