Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan, dates back to 1727 AD, and is popularly known as the 'Pink City' with broad avenues and spacious gardens. The city is steeped in history and culture, where the past comes alive in magnificent forts and palaces, blushed pink, where once lived the maharajas. Visitors to this fascinating city, famous for Rajasthani jewellery, fabric and shoes, will delight in exploring the countless bazaars and colourful market stalls. Jaipur is also famous for the manufacture of Blue Pottery; a unique craft that has flourished in this area since the founding of the city. Jaipur has much to offer — everything from pageants and festivals to extraordinarily clad people, a wealth of handicrafts, a royal legacy of palaces, and sightseeing, or even just taking the opportunity to walk the streets of the old city.
In the midst of all this history, Jaipur now boasts a new International Airport to welcome visitors to experience the city's magic and charm.
