Your guide to Jaipur


Stately, colourful and endlessly fascinating, Jaipur, capital of the Rajasthan state, is steadily creeping up the list of Indian 'must-sees'. Affectionately known as the 'Pink City', after Maharaja Ram Singh degreeded the whole city be painted pink in order to gain favour with Prince Albert, Jaipur is alive with festivals, parks and temples, as well as the hustle and bustle of everyday Indian life and utterly unmissable excursions. The undoubted jewel in the crown is the bewildering array of royal architecture from the central City Palace to the imposing Jaigarh Fort and breathtaking Hawa Mahal. Historically, the colour pink signifies welcoming and hospitality; Jaipur certainly deserves its nickname.
