The Pink City of India, filled with the historical monuments but sprawled haphazardly by the modern constructions, may look a little confusing at the first sight. But there is more than what meets the eye at the first time. The gateway to the state of deserts Rajasthan, Jaipur is one of the most important cities of India from the historical standpoint. It is one city that has preserved the roots of Royal Rajputanas and Maharajas despite being raided by the Islamic rulers several times. This is the city where you get to take a peek into the life of the Maharajas and their families.
The forts and palaces of Jaipur are its main attraction. While many may gape at the sight of Jal Mahal, those who know the city also know that it is just the beginning. There is so much more to see here. The massive Amber fort covering acres of land is one such example. Then there are forts like Jaigarh, Nahagarh and more.
The food and local craft of Jaipur are also also very famous. You can buy a number of handcrafted and beautiful items that will easily deck the interiors of your house. The food is definitely awesome but be aware as it might get a little chilli.
