JAI – JAIPUR ARCHITECTURAL TRAVEL GUIDE
By Sanjeev Vidyarthi and Prathiksha Singh
Discover the city of Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan. Founded in the 18th century by the Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh, it was planned according to Indian Vastu Shastra, in a grid system with uniform rose pink buildings. Jaipur is a melting pot of Rajput, Mughal and several other cultures and is also the seat of a generous amount of vernacular tradition. Even so, the Pink City has retained its unique flavour and old world charm. Visitors will also find a contemporary architecture that infuses new shapes with the legacy of the past and the spirit of place.
