Introduction to Jaipur
Jaipur the capital city of the northern Indian state of Rajasthan is one
of the colourful cities of India. jaipur is Famous for its colourful
culture, forts, palaces, and lakes the city basks in the glory of a rich
and eventful past. Jaipur is a planned city which is made all the more
attractive by the pink wash that most buildings are periodically given.
Besides, it remains the only city in the world that symbolises the nine
divisions of the universe, through nine rectangular sectors. It is for
these reasons that Jaipur has been included on the popular tourist
"Golden Triangle" of Delhi-Jaipur-Agra.
The picturesque capital of Rajasthan, Jaipur is color washed pink-the
color associated with hospitality in Rajput culture. Built in 1727 A.D.
by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh JI, Jaipur displays a remarkable harmony and
architectural splendor. The ancient heart of the Pink City still beats
in its fairy-tale palaces, rugged fortresses perched on barren hills and
broad avenues that dot the entire city. The only planned city of its
time, Jaipur is encircled by a formidable wall.
A young Bengali architect, Vidyadhar Bhattacharya formalised the city’s
plans in a grid system. The wide straight avenues. Roads, streets, lanes
and uniform rows of shops on either side of main bazaars were arranged
in nine rectangular city sectors (Chokris), in accordance with the
principles of town planning set down in the ‘Shilpa Shastra’- and
epochal treatise on the Hindu architecture.
There is a timeless appeal to Jaipur’s colorful bazaars where one can
shop for Rajasthani handlooms and trinkets. Beautifully laid out gardens
and parks, attractive monuments and marvelous heritage hotels, once the
residence of Maharaja’s are worth admiration. Not to mention the ambling
camels and cheerful people in multi-hued costumes that make your trip to
the pink city a memorable one.
