Pink city of Jaipur

edited February 2011 in - India
I want to do some sightseeing in Jaipur, as i have heard big things about the pink city and the amber fort. Is there anything around Jaipur, in the Rajastan countryside, that I should not miss? And why is Jaipur called the pink city anyway? - Bruno B

    I would like to suggest you one attractive thing, i.e., Pushkar camel festival. Many visitors prefer to be there in Rajasthan solely for this festival moment.

    Jaipur is called the Pink City because at the time, architecture of the town was very advanced and certainly the best in Indian Subcontinent. In 1853, when the Prince of Wales visited Jaipur, the whole city was painted pink to welcome him during the regime of Sawai Ram Singh. Today, avenues remain painted in pink, provide a distinctive appearance to the city. Jaipur is called the pink city because most of the old buildings of jaipur is painted in pink. Save It was painted to Pink, as the king want to show Price of Wales, the diversities of Jaipur, as if you mix all the colors it would come out to be dark brick red (Pink), with which they painted all the buildings.

  • Jaipur has been popularized with the name of Pink City because of the
    color of the stone exclusively used for the construction of all the
    structures. Anyone who has witnessed the city can substantiate the fact
    that all the buildings of Jaipur are pink in color.
