Now, if you are a history buff and love to hear fables about kings and wars, you are bound to fall in love with the origin

story of Jaipur

, which is filled with palaces and tombs galore. Founded by King Sawai Jai Singh II, the king of Ajmer, it is probably one of the very few cities in India which are planned in accordance to Vastu Shashtra. It was on the orders of King Sawai Ram Singh that the entire city was painted the color pink in the honor of welcoming the then Prince of Wales, Prince Edward. This fast developing city soon harbored about 160,000 people by 1900. Although half of our population comprises of Marwaris and Rajputs, but there are people residing here from ages that are from different states and races. And this has mainly occurred because there are job opportunities, there is no such political pressure and there are no unnecessary showoffs even.

Architecture in Jaipur

is nothing short of a page out of the Arabian Nights book that you used to read as a kid. If you haven’t toured Jaipur well, because of busy schedule, then you must visit the City Palace on a weekend, which is located at the heart of Jaipur, very near to Ravindra Manch. In fact, you can include Mubarak Palace and the Chandra Palace in this day out and don’t miss out the zoo which is very near to this Palace. Moreover, for the sake of your kids, Jantar-Mantar would be an ideal place to visit, which features many of the scientific inventions made by Indians in the ancient times, world’s biggest sundial being one of them.

There is also the exquisite Jal Mahal floating in the middle of Man Sagar Lake and the honey-combed Hawa Mahal is there, which was built to facilitate the queens to view the festivals occurring in the city. So if you are a history lover, you can always visit these places and get the taste of ancient India. Also, who can forget the beautifully sculpted

temples in Jaipur

like the Birla Mandir, Govind Dev Ji Ka Mandir, Khole Ke Hanuman Mandir and lot more to mention. In short, staying Jaipur and not visiting these places is like, staying in Agra, and not viewing the Taj Mahal. So don’t just waste your weekends, sitting back at home, rather, roam around, you have much more to see.
In fact, we feel proud to say that some of these

historical places in Jaipur

have been featured in well-known Hindi movies such as Rang De Basanti, Mughal-e-Azam, Shudh Desi Romance etc.
