Just as the Rajasthan state of India could be said to be the jewel of India’s tourism, similarly one could say that Jaipur is the jewel of Rajasthan. Known as the ‘Pink City’, because of the use of a certain sandstone in the older inner part of the city, Jaipur is a exuberant showcase of Rajasthan’s culture, architecture and grandeur. Jaipur is one of the three cities , along with Delhi and Agra, that form the Golden Triangle tour.
