And here is just a little taste of how breath-taking Jaipur is….
Jaipur is known as a Pink City of India and it’s the largest city in the state Rajasthan, which translated from Hindi means ‘the land of kings’.The 18th-century Maharaja Jai Singh designed the city to meet his every whim, with royal palaces, gardens and pavilions taking up almost a quarter of its footprint. Streets were designed as parade routes and a busy craft bazaar flourished, selling wares almost exclusively to decorate royal buildings.
It’s worth slipping into the side streets too: you’ll find the artisans, traders and shopkeepers who keep the city ticking.
