Planned by Vidyadhar Bhattacharya, Jaipur holds the distinction of being the first planned city of India. The capital of Rajasthan is renowned for its coloured gems and combines the allure of its ancient history with the advantages of a metropolitan city. This bustling city is one of the three corners of the golden triangle. The other two corners are Agra and Jaipur.
In 1876, the Prince of Wales visited India on a tour. The city of Jaipur was painted pink because pink symbolized hospitality. A marvellous sight to behold is the pink that colors the city. The forts Nahargarh, Jaigarh, and Garh Ganesh Temple surround Jaipur majestically.
The city of Jaipur was founded in 1727 by the Raja of Amber, Jai Singh II. Due to a rapidly-growing population and an increasing water shortage, he shifted his capital from Amber to the new city. The city was built according to Vastu Shastra principles by renowned architect Vidyadhar Bhattacharya.
