About Jaipur

Situated against the backdrop of the rugged Aravalli hills of Rajasthan, the city of Jaipur is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the country. Jaipur, which literally means ‘The City of Victory’, was founded in 1727 A.D by the great Kachhawah Raja Sawai Jai Singh II who lived from 1700 - 1747 A.D. This ruler was a great builder, a poet and an astronomer, and to celebrate his multi-faceted personality, it was decided that the city should also be named after him. Under his guidance and patronage, the talented architect Vidyadhar designed this beautiful township, giving shape to his creativity and imaginative aspirations. The resultant city that emerged came to be known as Jaipur, and became a jewel in the Rajasthani context, going on to become the State Capital.

In terms of architecture and layout, the city has a rectangular shape. All the designing was carried out as per instructions laid down in the ancient indian treatise on architecture called the ‘Shilpa Shastras’. Constructed on a grid-like pattern, it is divided into 9 separate blocks called ‘chokris’. Exceptionally well-planned, Jaipur has broad roads and wide lanes that offset the uniform rows of the city’s shops in the main marketplace. The most important monuments in Jaipur proper are concentrated in the historical Palace area that is central to the city and is called the Chokri Sarhad. Over time it was seen that the setting sun cast a pink glow on the walls and tenements of the city’s structures and it came to acquire the name ‘Pink City’.

Apart from the architectural richness of the land, Jaipur is known equally or the spirit of its people, who are warm, friendly and hospitable. Having lived with a deep knowledge of their brave past these people take great pride in the culture and are living testimonies to the uniqueness of its cultural fabric.

The cultural aspect of the city is in fact, an integral part of it. The dryness of the desert sands are set off by the colourul clothes and turbans or pagaris worn by the inhabitants, each of them carrying a symbolic meaning and usually used to delineate caste. The women wear a traditional attire of skirts called the ghagra-cholis and can be seen wearing a lot of ethnic jewellary decorated with traditional handcrafted work called kundan or meenakari. The local women also wear bangles made of lac bangles that can reach upto their elbows and often have tattoos. However, despite this aspect, the city is modern and provides all the amenities one can require.

The city also has a number of forts, temples, monuments, and gardens that are must-sees. It offers a wide array of shopping possibilities that range from colorful bangles, bright clothes and fabrics, precious and semi-precious stones and much more.

The festive spirit of Jaipur is well-expressed in its folk songs and dances. The fascinating movements of traditional dancers, the sounds of folk instruments and voices, and the lingering taste of its unique cuisine all add to create an unforgettable experience.
