The abode of architectural marvels like the majestic City Palace, the splendid Jantar Mantar, the glorious Hawa Mahal, the history laced Amer Fort, Jaigarh Fort and Nahargarh Fort, the land of colorful festivities like Teej and Gangaur- the marvelous Jaipur, the capital city of vibrant Rajasthan is a must-visit tourist destination on the itinerary of every travel buff.

Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh, the Second, who gives the city its name, is credited with laying the foundation stone of the beautiful Pink City in the year 1728. The blueprint of the city is the brain child of the supremely talented Vidyadhar Bhattacharya, a descendant of the Shaspati lineage. Shilpa Shastra and the Pithapada form the keystone of his vision. Jaipur has been built in alignment with rules of the grid method of construction. Nine rectangle shaped chokris or city spheres, laid out in broad, spruced up roads comprises the avant-garde architectural framework of Jaipur. Bolstered by munitions to ward off any foreign attack, Jaipur, in its entire pink splendor is a fascinating spectacle to behold.

The birth of Jaipur is dotted with engaging historical legends. History has it that Raja Sawai Jai Singh, the Second, conceptualized the creation of Jaipur, led by reasons like the growing head count, the paucity of water resources and the gradual demise of the Mughal aura. The charismatic ruler's sound understanding of the science of engineering is reflected in the nook and corner of Jaipur. The amazing Jantar Mantar or the famous observatory, built between 1728 and 1734, is another architectural delight, credited to the Maharaja. An interesting nugget of information for all those quiz buffs is that the incredibly talented Raja, is said to have contrived the mechanism for watering the sprawling acres of Amber Fort, at the tender age of thirteen.

The City Palace of Jaipur forms the cynosure of attraction, both literally and metaphorically. It comprises the Olympian palace, the Jantar Mantar and the Janana Mahals or the dwelling of the Maharanis', an insignia of his political maneuvering. A fervent devotee of Lord Krishna, the King reestablished the idol of the blue hued God, at Jaipur in the year 1719.

A real connoisseur of art and culture, Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh's court witnessed an unprecedented spurt of activities in the cultural sphere. Distinguished intellectuals made a beeline for the esteemed Raja's durbar.

The wonderful Jaipur, located in Eastern Rajasthan, occupying 11117.8 square kilometers, is situated at a height four hundred and thirty meters. The Temperatures soars up to forty five degrees during the sweltering summer months and plummets down to almost two degrees during the chilly winter season. Ban Ganga and Sabi flow through its historic terrains. The Ramgarh Dam, built upon the Ban Ganga, is a constant source of drinking water. It also houses the Sambhar Lake, which is famed for its salt. English, Rajasthani and Hindi forms the common dialects of Jaipur.
