The capital of Rajasthan’s regal state is Jaipur, also known as the “Pink City.” Jaipur is one of the most well-known tourist routes in the nation and forms the Golden Triangle with Delhi and Agra.
Jaipur was built as a planned city in the 17th century after being dominated by Rajputs for many generations. The pink city of Jaipur, which has gates embellished with artwork and walls surrounding the old city, has managed to preserve its old-world charm. Amer Fort and Jantar Mantar are two UNESCO World Heritage Sites located in Jaipur, which is also home to several other spectacular forts, palaces, temples, and museums as well as a plethora of busy local bazaars where you may buy to your heart’s content. The city is also very well known for its local food, and the most famous dishes include the Ghewar, Pyaaz Kachori, and Dal Baati Churma. The city also hosts the Jaipur Literary Festival, which is Asia’s biggest festival of its kind.
One of the largest cities in India, Jaipur is also home to all the modern amenities with some of the most exotic hotels and resorts in the world. The city boasts an international airport and is also very well connected by rail and road. This makes Jaipur the gateway to Rajasthan – the starting point for places to visit in the interiors of the state. The metro, local buses, shared tuk-tuks, auto-rickshaws, and taxi aggregator apps, including Uber and Ola, solve the commute problem in the city quite comfortably.
