Jaipur or the Pink cityŁ, in western Indian state of Rajasthan and its capital as well, is a historical city in every sense for a glorious past. Founded in 17th century, this central Rajasthan city had to witness a series of never-ending wars between Rajputs kings and the erstwhile rivals. A city with age-old charm, Jaipur attracts tourists for majestic forts, charming parks, pleasing lakes, luscious gardens etc.
Tourist attractions are many in Jaipur, and the City Palace and Maharaja Sawai Man Singh Museum stand out from the rest. The Hawa Mahal or palace of winds┬Ł is another architectural marvel in pink sandstone. If the Jaigarh Fort, a splendid hilltop fort, attracts for its myriad structures within, then the Nahargarh Fort adds a fabulous backdrop and visited for its Aravalli Hills ridge location.
If the Amber Fort is visited by tourists for its grand fusion of Hindu and Mughal architecture, then the Kanak Vrindavan on the foothills of Nahargarh hills attracts tourists attention for its delightfully landscaped gardens to be a perfect picnic spot. If the Lakshmi Narayan Birla temple and Govind Dev Ji temple add religious flavour to Jaipur, then the Alber Hall Museum gives a peek into the splendid past of the town.
