Jaipur – The Pink city of Maharajas

Pink City

In 1853, when the Prince of Wales visited Jaipur, the whole city was painted pink to welcome him during the regime of Sawai Ram Singh. Today, avenues remain painted in pink which provided a distinctive appearance to the city. Even today one can see that Jaipurites are very much nostalgic about their city’s unique distinction of being the pink city. They maintain the colour of the building along side the road with pink, while buildings constructed in the inner area is of the colour of their choice.
