Jaipur Tourism Guide

Jaipur the `Pink City' as it is popularly known, is the bustling capital of Rajasthan. `Pink city' because most of the buildings are pink in colour in the old city. The city retains its old self, at the same time it is moving fast as a modern city. You can see extreme contrast on the streets of Jaipur. On one side you have cars, buses and motorbikes, on the other side you can see camel carts.

On one side there are traditionally dressed men and women in their turbans and colorful long skirts and blouses. On the other hand you can see modernly dressed Indians and foreign tourists having a bite in their favorite American restaurants. There are new modern buildings existing along side with old Palaces. You have posh showrooms, which give the best in artifacts and clothes and you have vendors on the streets selling Rajasthani shoes or jewellery. The city with such contrasts has almost everything to offer you in terms of royal style, classic jewellery, lovely handmade and embroidered clothes which includes dresses, dress materials and beautiful handicrafts.

The city was constructed by Maharaja Jai Singh II (1693-1643) to shift his capital from Amber to a new place. He has planned the city according to shilpa-shastra, which is the ancient Hindu treatise on architecture. The city was built with surrounding walls and rectangular blocks. But the city to which he shifted is no longer spacious. The surroundings of the Palaces are now very crowded. It is now all shops and hotels. But the buildings constructed by him like the Jantar Mantar are still intact for people to see.
