Jaipur, also known as the Pink City of Rajasthan. It’s not only pink but the most colourful city of India. This city describes the vivid culture of India. Jaipur is probably the first planned city of India. It was planned to design in Pink color, as the color signs for hospitality. The vibe of the city is beautiful. You feel welcomed. This city offers a touch of India like no other city. Jaipur is all about forts, museums, food, monuments, shopping. The local markets are another tourist site on their own.

What’s the story behind this “Pink City”?

Going back in history, when Maharaja Sawai Ram Singh was in power and when Prince Albert came to Jaipur in 1876. Maharaja wanted to impress the Prince and hence, he planned an extreme strategy.

Maharaja constructed a large concert hall and named it Prince Albert Hall Museum. Then, he decided to repaint the entire city for beautification and chose terracotta pink for the same. The queen of Maharaja Sawai Ram Singh loved the color and asked the Maharaja to make a law that every house in Jaipur should be pink in color and use of any other color is illegal. The law was passed in the year 1877 and it is effective till today.

The colour represents hospitality and no doubt it stands by what it’s meant for. Beautiful, the first word which comes to mind when you visit Jaipur. Take up this challenge and show us how you captured Jaipur. All the Best!
