DISCOVER JAIPUR

THE ‘PINK CITY’

Rajasthan’s walled, rose-pink capital, Jaipur is prized for its regal heritage, ancient bazaars, imposing hillside forts and architectural splendour. Include the fabled ‘Pink City’ on your luxury, tailor-made holiday and discover one of India’s most vibrant cities and newly appointed UNESCO World Heritage Site. Founded in the 18th century by Maharaja Jai Singh II, Jaipur was designed with wide boulevards and filled with an exquisite collection of royal residences, gardens and stately terracotta mansions. In 1876, the whole city was painted pink – hence the nickname – in honour of the visiting Prince of Wales.

Stroll through the Old City to discover treasures like the beautiful Hawa Mahal (Palace of the Winds) and its elaborate red sandstone facade, behind which the ladies of the court used to sit and observe life down in the streets below. Visit the opulent City Palace to browse rare manuscripts before heading next door to see the world’s largest stone sundial at the extraordinary Jantar Mantar observatory.

The Amber Fort, whose golden-hued ramparts rise majestically in the Aravalli Hills just outside the city, is the most celebrated of Jaipur’s monuments. Tour the site and discover an extensive palace complex complete with galleries, temples, royal quarters and geometric gardens.

It’s not just history buffs that will delight in Jaipur. Devoted shoppers can waft in the comfort of cool modern malls or dive straight into the city’s old bazaars with a guide to bargain with vendors for antique jewelry, silk, spices and ceramics.
