The capital of Rajasthan is known as the “pink city” — the facades of most historical buildings have a terracotta-pink color. Along with Agra and Delhi, Jaipur is part of the Indian “golden triangle”. This is a well-known tourist route that introduces the history and culture of the ancient state. In 1727, Jaipur became the first city in India built not randomly, but in accordance with the canons of the ancient Indian system of geometric space planning.
The most striking architectural sights are the Maharaja’s City Palace, Amber Fort Palace, Hawa Mahal Harem Palace, Jal Mahal Lake Castle, temple complexes, an ancient observatory. In addition, there are many handicraft shops in Jaipur and one of the busiest markets in the country. And in the spring, an enchanting elephant festival takes place in the city.
