The beautiful city of Jaipur is the capital of Rajasthan. It is well known as the Pink City because of its trademark colour of buildings. It has always reflected the royal beauty and hospitality.
The magnificent architecture of Palaces and forts are sure to impress anyone who visits the city. The former are mostly the construction of the Rajput ruler Jai Singh II in the year 1727.

Not just the former but all the others like Maratha and Jats who ruled Jaipur continued to maintain the glory of this place.
The history of Jaipur is quite interesting as before independence the city was named Rajputana because the rulers had good relations with the East India Company. However post-independence, the town was named Jaipur and became the capital of Rajasthan. Jaipur is now the 10th most populous city in India. It has 2 UNESCO World Heritage Sites which are Amer Fort and Jantar Mantar.
Jaipur is famous for its excellent and colourful handicrafts and textiles. It has the most amazing markets for shopping and flooding. Daal Baati Churma is the famous traditional dish served here. Further in sweets, Ghevar is loved by everyone.
Marwari and standard Hindi is the most preferred language here, but due to tourism, English is spoken by many. The beauty of this wonderful city is evident from its growing tourism industry. People from all walks of life come and visit this pink city and admire its beauty.
From the Amer Fort to City Palace to Jal Mahal each monument is absolutely stunning and has an interesting history behind it. It is definitely a must to visit Jaipur.
