Jaipur is known all over the world as the “Pink City”. It is called so because a large number of the tourist places in Jaipur are of the terracotta pink color, such as the forts, havelis and palaces. Jaipur is probably the most important tourist destination in India after the medieval city of Agra.

It is the capital city of the state of Rajasthan and the prolific nature of Jaipur tourism makes it the busiest cities in India today. The city was founded in the year 1727 by Maharaj Sawai Jai Singh II, who was the ruler of the nearby city of Amber. The old city is surrounded by a strong wall and beautiful ornately painted gates. This was the first planned city of India. The city has been battle ground in the past and has witnessed great victories, hence, Jaipur is also referred to as the city of victory.
