Jaipur Travel Guide

Founded by Raja Sawai Jai Singh II, Jaipur is a superb and well-planned city with many landmarks that epitomize sublime beauty in its most subdued form. The resplendent palaces and imposing forts of this heritage city will steal your heart with Rajput splendor. The Hawa Mahal - the Summer Palace for the Royal Ladies – has an ingenious natural air-conditioning and a delicate paper-thin five-storey screen façade that kept the ladies veiled from prying eyes while allowing them full view of whatever happened in the market area. Jantar Mantar or the Royal Observatory at Jaipur is an evidence of scientific ingenuity of the city’s founder. The interesting pink shade became the official color of the walled city area ever since the visit of the royal spouse of Queen Victoria.
