Jaipur is the largest city in Rajasthan and was built in the eighteenth century by Sawai Jai Singh as India's first planned city. Jaipur is a major tourist attraction amongst Indian as well as international travelers. It belongs to the tourist Golden Triangle of Delhi, Jaipur and Agra. It hosts several attractions like the City Palace, Govind Dev ji Temple, Vidhan Sabha, Birla Temple, several massive Rajput forts and so on. It also serves as a stepping stone for travelers heading to the desert cities of Jodhpur and Jaisalmer along with religious places like Ajmer & Pushkar.

Jaipur is often called the Pink City in reference to its distinctly coloured buildings, which were originally painted this color to imitate the red sandstone architecture of Mughal cities. The present earthy red color originates from repainting of the buildings undertaken for a visit by the Prince of Wales in 1876.Palace hotels, once home to India’s royal families, and painted elephants parading along the streets are all part of the colorful exoticism of Jaipur. Within an hour’s drive of the city are sensuous, embellished palace rooms to view, tribal villages to visit, handwoven and embroidered Kashmir shawls to buy and a world of modern Indian design to uncover.

Jaipur has always had a tradition of lavish palaces, handcrafted jewelry, sculpture and art. Block-printed cottons, handmade papers, hand-bound books and enamelwork are among the crafts still produced in the city today. Jaipur is also the place to scour bazaars and emporiums for the cashmere shawls, block-printed quilts, diamond rings, and fine textiles that turn up—at much higher prices—in trendsetting stores from Madison Avenue to Melrose Place.

Jaipur is considered by many to be one of the best planned cities. It has been claimed to be the first planned city in India. It was at that time one of the best planned cities in Asia. Jaipur is a major tourist destination in India. In the 2008 Conde Nast Traveler Readers Choice Survey, Jaipur was ranked the 7th best place to visit in Asia.
