J A I P U R Diaries ..my pink city Diaries( 850 hotel,1209 royal Enfield,250 lunch,200 for cig, 200 entry fee, 1350 for luxury dinner at Choki Dhani)

"Doused in an appeasing pink, Jaipur has, over the years, come to don the title of India’s “Pink City.” Rich in its historical heritage, every corner of Jaipur holds an interesting antidote and touch of old-world charm. The color of the city, too, has interesting stories & theories behind it."
