Welcome to Jaipur, India  
Jaipur is the capital city of the state Rajasthan in India. The city graciously flows with royal architecture and culture which dates back to the 17th century. The city is also known as the ‘Pink City’ due to the colour of the houses present and is named after the ruler Jai Singh who unlike other kings, was a keen astronomer and a great warrior. 

Places to Visit

  • Amber Fort 

    Declared as UNESCO World Heritage site, Amber Fort in Jaipur is one of the most remarkable forts in India standing magnificently since its birth in the city of Jaipur. The architecture is a note-worthy fusion of Rajput and Islamic style. 

  • Hawa Mahal 

    Initially built to offer the site of the city processions to the royal ladies of Jaipur, Hawa Mahal is now the best place to have a view of the city by anyone who visits it. The Palace is built in a honeycomb shape contributing to the title of the Pink City, due to its exterior colour. 

  • Jantar Mantar 

    The Jantar Mantar is a collection of nineteen architectural astronomical instruments built by the Rajput king Sawai Jai Singh II, the founder of Jaipur, Rajasthan. The monument was completed in 1734. It features the world's largest stone sundial and is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

  • Nahargarh Fort 

    Nahargarh is one of the magnificent and mystical forts in Jaipur situated on Aravalli Mountain ranges. The word Nahargarh loosely translates to ‘abode of tigers’ and was named so due to the belief of tigers wandering around the hills. Even though the fort was built for the defence purpose, it was never really attacked by them.

  • Galta Ji (Monkey Temple) 

    Galta Ji is a large Hindu temple complex that lies 10km to the east of Jaipur. These temples are a popular tourist attraction as they are home to a large colony of monkeys and this has given rise to the common name of the complex, the monkey temple.
