25 Best Places to Visit in Jaipur

Jaipur

Top Tourist Attractions in Jaipur

Rajasthan‘s capital, Jaipur, is located in India. It pays homage to the royal dynasty that formerly governed the region and established what is now known as the Old City, or “Pink City,” because of its distinctive architectural hue. The magnificent, colonnaded City Palace complex lies in the middle of its majestic street grid (notable in India). Part of it is still a royal palace, with gardens, courtyards, and museums.

On November 18, 1727, Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II built Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan. From 1699 until 1743, Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II governed Jaipur as a Kachwaha Rajput. His previous capital was Amber, which is 11 kilometres from Jaipur. The king felt compelled to relocate the capital city as the population grew. Water shortage in the Amber region was also a factor in the decision to relocate the capital.
