As one of the three points of the famous “Golden Triangle,” Jaipur is one of the most vibrant and bustling cities in India. Known for its national treasures of art and architecture, this regal city is one of the most visited cities in South Asia. Jaipur is the capital of the state of Rajasthan, which is by far the most iconic region of India, known for its opulent palaces and imposing forts, as well as its many historic vestiges of the British Raj. Today, guests will find Jaipur to be a spectacular city full of color and excitement. Jaipur is well known by its moniker of “The Pink City,” because so many of its historic old city walls and buildings are painted in a pastel shade of pink. In 1876 Jaipur dressed itself in pink to welcome Prince Albert, consort of Queen Victoria, and thus earned its nickname.
