Jaipur, the pink city

 

Jaipur

In the capital of Rajasthan, universally described as the "Pink City" on account of its soft red sandstone buildings and more poetically ascribed the sobriqet of the city in the tone of an autumn sunset, colour is a changing canvas.

Men wear colourful turbans that capture the vivid hues of a rainbow, and women capture the colour in the swirl of their skirts and the richness of their jewellery.

Its monuments too celebrate the royal city. Atop the scraping hill is Amber Fort which you can reach, seated on a beautiful caparisoned elephants. And what a range of palaces and mansions here, exquisitely decorated with arts of the land.It is a royal home as royal as the one that is your hotel, where you can indulge your various imaginations. Amber was the traditional capital of the rulers of the royal house till Sawai Jai Singh, in the 17th century, ordered his state architect, Vidyadhar to begin the new city of Jaipur in the plains below.  stone work

 

Hawa Mahal In the city too are buildings as beautiful as the delicately filigreed Hawa Mahal or the City Palace that houses a fascinating Observatory with its masonry instruments that once very accurately predicted the tales of the constellations. 

 
 

Jaipur is filled with mansions (havelis) and palaces and every where in the city you will be in constant touch with both the present and past. For Jaipur not only celebrates colour, but life as well. 
For becoming one with this vibrant city, Krishna Air Services has taken care of all the arrangements.
