The biggest city and the capital of Rajasthan , Jaipur is full of history , culture and heritage.The city was created by by Jai Singh II in the year 1727 with the help of the scholar Vidyadhar Bhattacharya .I is considered to be one of the best planned city in Rajasthan . This city is made keeping in mind the vastu shastra and shilpa shastra. It is divided into 9 blocks , two of which are kept for palaces and state buildings and the rest of them are given to the public. There are 7 gates , the 3 main gates face the three directions : Eastern gate[ Suraj Pol] , Westergate[Chand pole] , Northern gate[ faces the ancestral capital Amer]. Jaipur is also called as the 'Pink City' because of the dominant colour scheme of its buildings
My journey started from Delhi in a volvo bus to Jaipur . It took me about 5 hours to reach Jaipur . Known for its opulent palaces , magnificent forts , and folklores Jaipur is a treat for any history buff.
