About Jaipur

Jaipur boasts the distinction of being one of the earliest planned cities in India. Built under the aegis of Jai Singh II, the Raja of Amer, the city's architectural layout was drawn up in keeping with the laws of Vastu Shastra as well as Shilp Shastra. Jaipur is also the gateway to the other major travel destinations and heritage sites of Rajasthan. It opens up the way to the magical and ephemeral sands of the Thar. Jaisalmer, Udaipur and Ajmer are all connected through road.

The city is well connected by road, railways and has its own international airport, the Jaipur international Airport. It also forms the golden triangle of tourist destinations; the other two cities being Agra and Delhi.

The city has also earned the moniker of Pink City after buildings city-wide were painted pink in honor of the visiting Prince of Wales Edward VII. Even after his departure many buildings remained pink.

With a climate that is overwhelmingly influenced by the arid condition of Thar Desert, Jaipur is one of the hotter cities in India but is salutary for a visit in the pleasant months between November and February.

The city is home to some of the most remarkable monuments and cultural sites in India. 10 km from the city lies the Amber Fort. Built in the 16th century, the Fort continues to enthrall people with its rugged yet intact edifice made of red sandstone and marble and the Maotha lake only adds to the charm of the fort.

Jantar Mantar is another significant landmark that not only adds to the city's cultural heritage but also speaks to the avid interest that people took in the unveiling the secrets of the Cosmos.

Other important landmarks include Jaigarh Fort, Hawa Mahal, The City Palace Jaipur, Moti Durgi and Govind Dev Ji temple. Jaipur also happens to be a hub of handicrafts and folk arts. bandhani, block printing, sculpture, silver jewellery, gems, Lakh ki Chudiya, miniature paintings and blue pottery are just a few of the gamut of arts and crafts that the city harbors.

The city hosts one of the most prestigious Literature Festivals in the world, The Jaipur Literature Fest. Jaipur with its awe-inspiring varied cultural heritage and cultural and artistic ventures that are still up and coming is a promising travel destination, to say the least.
