Jaipur Heritage Tours

Jaipur is popularly known as the "Pink city"and is the capital of Rajasthan. The city constructed by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, is designed as per the Hindu treatise " Shilp Shastra" and is called as the "first planned city of the country".The pink color was used at the time of making to create an impression of red sandstone buildings of Mughal cities - and repainted in 1876, during the visit of the Prince of Wales.

It's the only city in the world symbolizing the nine divisions of the universe through nine rectangular sector sub- dividing it. The palaces and forts of yesteryears, which were witness to royal processions and splendor, are now living monuments.

Places of interest are mainly located within the walled city.

The City Palace: The City Palace complex is the most important landmark with its numerous outbuildings, courtyards, impressive gateways and temples.

Jantar Mantar: Jantar Mantar, one of the five observatories built bySawai Jai Singh. A collection of complex astronomical instruments, chisseled out of stone- most of which continue to provide fairly accurate information to this day - is the highlight of this observatory .
