Describing It

Forts, palaces, temples, colours (lots of them!), food, history and heritage- welcome to Jaipur, the ideal gateway to royal Rajasthan. The largest and the capital city of the state, Jaipur is a bustling metropolis where modernity and heritage co-exists in a manner that leaves people in sheer awe.

Fondly known as the ‘Pink City’, Jaipur gets its name from the terracotta shade that colours the walls of the old city. The city never fails to enthrall its visitors- frequent or first-timers. The awe-inspiring Amber Fort located at the periphery of the city’s limits, is one of the most popular tourist attractions for anyone visiting Jaipur. From the magnificent City Palace to the extraordinary Hawa Mahal, from Jantar Mantar to Nahargarh Fort that stands majestically on the edge of the Aravalli Hills; Jaipur offers grandeur at every nook and corner. Shopping in Jaipur is an absolute delight. With colourful clothes, tie and dye fabrics, exquisite handicrafts, artefacts and beautiful silver jewellery on offer, it’s almost impossible to visit Jaipur and return without any shopping bags in hand! Much like the rest of Rajasthan, Jaipur, too, is a paradise for foodies.

Along with Rajasthani delicacies like daal baati choorma, there is also a wide choice of restaurants and cafes in the city that serve all kinds of cuisines. The food tastes more delicious because it’s served with sheer love and warmth of the people of Jaipur!
