Yes, You heard it right. JAIPUR is my new city. I have shifted here in June 2018 and i am falling in Love with city every passing day.
Jaipur is the capital of Rajasthan state of India and is ~300 kms from Delhi. One can travel by road (4 hrs journey) or by train from Delhi. Jaipur is a very different city architecturally and culturally and is known as PINK city, reason being, in 1876, when Prince of Wales visited the place, the whole city was painted pink to welcome him. It was founded in 1727 by Maharaj Jai Singh and was named after him as “Jaipur”. Initially his capital was Amber (now knows as Amer), which lies at a distance of 11 km from main city. Amer is a beautiful fort and a visit to Jaipur is seriously incomplete without visiting Amer.
Pink city is home to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites: The Jantar Mantar and the Amer Fort.
