Jaipur is known as the “pink city” and serves as the capital and largest city of the state of Rajasthan. In 1876 Jaipur was colored in terracotta pink to welcome Prince Albert, and thus the name “Pink City” was given to Jaipur. For a pre-modern Indian city, it’s wide streets and organized layout set it apart from other smaller cities in Rajasthan. The busy streets and packed bazaars made it a lively city and great for shopping as well. The highlight of our visit was a side trip to the nearby Amber Fort.
