About Jaipur and its architecture


Jaipur is a beautiful city and capital of Rajasthan. Sawai Jaisingh, Maharaja of Amber, built it three hundred years back. He shifted his capital from Amber to Jaipur. Vidyadhar, a renowned town planner, and architect from Bengal designed the city. The old city is walled and all the buildings are pink. Hence, Jaipur is nicknamed as Pink City. It is also called Emerald city for its tradition of Emerald manufacturing.

Jaipur is in the golden triangle of Indian tourist map with Indian capital Delhi and Tazmahal fame Agra. Hawamahal, the icon of Jaipur; Jantar Mantar, the observatory; Forts on the top of mountains, Beautiful palaces and gardens, Hindu and Jain temples are places of attraction. Jaipur is the preferred destination for Bollywood filmmakers.

Jaipur is also the place for precious and semi-precious gemstones. This is the biggest color stone manufacturing and trading center in India. It is also known for its handicrafts and garments industries.

Jaipur is well connected with the rest of the world through air, road and train links.

About uncommon Photographs


Huge materials are available in the hub pages and on the web about Jaipur. However, these photographs are different from those available in the net. All these photographs are from my own private collection and none from anywhere else. I have shooted all these pictures myself but one with President Bill Clinton.

The pictures in this article reflect religion, society, culture, festival and of course, architect and sculpture of Jaipur. Jaipur is a vibrant city rich with its culture. Large numbers of forts, palaces, and other historical monuments have been attracting indigenous and overseas tourists for centuries. Temples of various religions with beautiful architecture and sculpture are an attraction for both devotees and tourists.

Cultural and religious events and festivals such as Diwali and Makar Sankranti are attractive features of Jaipur. Jaipur wedding ceremonies are also special.

Your suggestions and advises are welcome in the comments section.

Ah, I remember a crazy ride round the market area in a tricycle taxi. We were a group, so all the drivers were racing against each other. Our guide, Kapil Rotaghi, treated us to some delicious samosas from a stall. We had a day at Amber Fort. I fell in love with it straight away. I would like to come back some day.

Hi Jyoti,

Though I live in Jaipur, some of the photos are really uncommon for me.

If even I do not talk of Darshan with Bill, yo have depicted the whole culture, society, festival and religion of Jaipur in a single hub.

Really wonderful pictures especially with President Clinton. We went only to popular places like Hawa Mahal, Jantar Mantar, Museum. It was about 10 years back. Thumbs up.

Hi Lensman,

Thanks for your comment.

Mr. Bill Clinton visited Jaipur and Darshan was a small kid at that time. While meeting Bill prompted to take him in his lap and a daily newspaper photographer took the snap and gifted it to me. As he was accompanied with me, I could not take the photograph. This is the only picture in this hub that, I have not taken. Bill also written some message for him and signed in his school notebook.

I will try to write a hub about kite festival in Jaipur.
