Jaipur, the largest and the capital city of Rajasthan is every inch of the paradise in the semi desert territory which its founder Maharaja Jai Singh II wanted it to be. History and character is deeply embedded in the pink city from its genesis, a city which was never a victim of conquest but subject to be ruled by heart rather than war. Jaipur being one of the most well planned city was in the precise hands of an architect from Bengal, and enjoys the accolade of being India’s first city to be planned by Vastu Shastra.
Through their Jaipur sightseeing tours, visitors will be captivated by the bustling Bazaars, world class hotels and clammy sophistication. Jewellery and textile shops, and palatial heritage hotels are in abundance.
