Jaipur (Also Known as Jeypore or former Dhundhar state) is named after its founder Maharaja Jai Singh II (1693-1743), who came to power at the age of 12 founded and ruled Jaipur from 1727. Even though 28 kings ruled for six centuries at Amber, today Jaipur is much better known where only ten Maharajas have sat on the throne over the last two hundred and fifty years — and the eleventh east while ruler now leads the Kachhawahas. This has as much to do with the grand vision of Sawai Jai Singh II who founded Jaipur – as with the British who began the custom of calling the states by the names of their capitals.
The picturesque capital of Rajasthan, Jaipur is color washed Pink, the hue is associated with hospitality in Rajput culture. Built in 1727 A.D by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh – II, Jaipur displays a remarkable harmony and architectural splendor. The Ancient heart of the Pink City still beats in its fairy – tale palaces. Rugged fortresses perched on barren hills and broad avenues that dot the entire city. The only planned city of its time, Jaipur is encircled by a formidable wall.
