"Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan is also known as Pink City. It is surrounded on all sides by rugged hills that are crowned with forts and enclosed by embattled walls. Jaipur was and remains the only city in the world, which symbolises the nine divisions of the universe, through nine rectangular sectors sub-dividing it."

The pink city of Jaipur is steeped in Rajasthani history and tradition, forts, palaces, monuments, and old buildings speckled all across Jaipur, speak of its rich cultural heritage. The city was conceived and designed in 1727 AD by the Rajput king Sawai Jai Singh and was later named after him.
The city looks almost magical at sunset when the sunrays paint different hues of pink on the walls. It was painted a `welcoming pink` during the visit of the Prince of Wales in 1876.
