It is as popular as Delhi and Agra to foreign visitors.

                Built in 1727 A.D. by maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, Jaipur displays a remarkable harmony and architectural splendour. The old city is a great place to wonder around. The whole city was painted in pink color by maharaja Man Singh II when prince of wales, later Edward VII, visited Jaipur in 1876. It is a very well planned city laid out in a grid pattern and was desigened by a young Bengali engineer and scholar by the name “Vidhyadhar Bhattachyra”. How ever in wake of time, the city over grew in size and extensive colonies have now sprung up out side the old peripheral wall which is also giving way at many places. Jaipur is steeped in history and culture. Here the past comes alive in magnificent forts and palaces, blushed pink, where once lived the Maharajas. The busting bazaars of Jaipur, famous for Rajasthani jewellery,fabric and shoes, possess a timeless quality and are surely a treasure trove for the shoppers.
