Jaipur is the capital city of the northern Indian state of Rajasthan. Jaipur is one of the most vibrant and colourful cities in India, where you find a mixture of traditional roots and as well the impact of modern globalization. The pink city, which is an often-used name for Jaipur, is no exception. Forts, palaces and Havelis are be found at several places; especially in the old city, which is surrounded by pink walls, hence the name.
