Jaipur (जयपुर) is part of the so called “Golden Triangle” in that it is one of the three main places tourists visit while in India. Jaipur is the capital city of Rajasthan and is supposedly one of the better designed cities in India, and has a population of over 3 million.
Jaipur was founded 1727 by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, the ruler of Amber. It is also called pink city because it was painted pink in 1876 to welcome Prince Albert. Jaipur photos are always interesting because of the vast number of attractions in the city.
