Hello beautiful ladies !!!
Today i will be sharing with you all, some of the pictures that I clicked during my Jaipur trip. But before starting with the pictures have a look at the title of the post, Jaipur: The pink city of India. So, why is Jaipur called the pink city ? Is it really pink ?
Jaipur has been popularized with the name of Pink City because of the color of the stone exclusively used for the construction of all the structures. Anyone who has witnessed the city can substantiate the fact that all the buildings of Jaipur are pink in color. The pink color has its own history. In 1876, the Prince of Wales and Queen Victoria visited India on a tour. Since pink denotes the color of hospitality, Maharaja Ram Singh of Jaipur painted the whole city pink in color to welcome the guests. The tradition has been sincerely followed by the residents who are now, by law, compelled to maintain the pink color. And Yes! Its still that way!!! The complete city is not pink, as in the newly constructed hotels and houses might not be pink, but everything in the old city is pink, well, not exactly a bright pink, but it is kind of a rust color which is considered to be pink. Have a look at couple of these pictures:
We went through the old city for shopping as well as to view a giant historic structure called Hawa Mahal. Hawa Mahal or the “Palace of the Breeze”), is a palace in Jaipur, India, so named because it was essentially a high screen wall built so the women of the royal household could observe street festivities while unseen from the outside. Constructed of red and pink sandstone, the palace sits on the edge of the City Palace, and extends to the zenana, or women’s chambers.
It is a 5 story building which looks beautiful from inside.
Later in the day we decided to see another historic structure called the Jal Mahal. It is basically a palace located in the middle of the Man Sagar Lake in Jaipur city.
Finally we went to visit the giant fort called Amer Fort. Initially we planned to visit the fort but due to lack of time, we were just able to see it from far.
Hope you enjoyed the pics!!!!
