Jaipur : the pink city of India

Jaipur is one of the most interesting places in India. It was founded in 1727 and was immediately proclaimed the capital of India’s largest state – Rajasthan. Jaipur is very easy to recognize in the photos because of the unique color of the buildings … According to the history of 1876, before the arrival of the Prince of Wales, he had been ordered to paint all the buildings in pink, thus testifying the kindness and hospitality of the local people. Since then, Jaipur has received his second name – “Pink City”. Jaipur is very popular among exotic lovers, new experiences and excursions to majestic palaces … Most of Jaipur’s attractions are gathered inside the walls of the city.

The main attractions of the city are mainly associated with unmatched masterpieces of ancient Indian architecture.
