India - DESTINATIONS & HOTELS

Jaipur

Built in 1727, Jaipur is the capital of Rajasthan and was the dream of the brilliant Rajput ruler Jai Singh. It is one of India’s most atmospheric and impressive destinations. Jaipur is also commonly known as the 'pink city' due to the pink stucco walls, which were painted in honour of the Prince of Wales when he visited the city in 1876.  

Within the city the main focus is the huge palace complex, still home to the Maharaja, and includes the Hawa Mahal 'Palace of the Winds' facade, formal gardens, a fascinating museum of the Maharajas' lavish possessions and Sawai Jai Singh's Jantar Mantar observatory.

Just outside Jaipur, perch majestically on top of a hill, lies the magnificent Amber Fort which is actually more like a palace and has been divided into four main sections each with its own courtyard. Jaipur is also a delight for those seeking to buy traditional Indian crafts, including jewellery, silver and silk which can be found in the cities many bazaars.
