Jaipur, the vibrant capital of Rajasthan, is popularly known as ’the pink city,’ for the colour of the buildings in its wonderful old city. This buzzing metropolis is certainly a place of wild contrasts and is a feast for the eyes. The pink colour was used at the time to create an impression of red sandstone buildings of Mughal cities. It was repainted in 1876, during the visit of the Prince of Wales. It is still maintained scrupulously.
The city displays a remarkable harmony & architectural splendour. Designed in accordance with the ancient Hindu treatise on architecture, the Shilpa Shastra, Jaipur follows a grid system and is encircled by a fortified wall. The palace lies in the heart of the city and occupies the space of the central grid. Wide lanes which divide the area into tidy, well laid-out rectangles of commercial and residential use, cut across the rest of the grids neatly. The fortified wall has seven gates and was built for protection from invading armies and wild animals that lurked just outside, in the thick jungles that surrounded the city.
Today, the city has spread beyond these walls and reached neighbouring towns and continues to grow. But Jai Singh’s planned city has withstood all the pressures and the changes.
Today, it has become the most popular tourist destination in Rajasthan, making one corner of the ’Golden Triangle’ (Delhi-Jaipur-Agra). The city is best explored on foot and the adventurous visitors willing to go into the inner lanes can discover a whole new world not visible to the tourist-in-a hurry.
