History

Jaipur is the capital  of Rajasthan, the desert state of India, which is famous for its majestic forts, opulent havelis, beautiful lakes and dunes. The history of Jaipur takes us about 300 years back in time, when the Mughal Empire in India was on the decline. At this time Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II in Rajasthan was looking for a safe place to shift the increasing population of amber and found Jaipur to build the city.  He commissioned Vidyadhar Bhattacharya, a fine architect from Bengal the responsibility of building the city. Jaipur was designed strictly according to shilpa shastra, which is the ancient treatise on architecture.

Jaipur is one of the most popular destinations on a tourist’s itinerary. The magnificent forts, beautiful havelis and colourful bazaars make Jaipur a popular tourist destination among tourist.
