Jaipur - India
Jaipur is the capital of India’s Rajasthan state. It evokes the royal family that once ruled the region and that, in 1727, founded what is now called the Old City, or “Pink City”, for its trademark building colour.
The opulent, colonnaded City Palace complex stands at the centre of its stately street grid (notable in India).
Part of it is still a royal residence with gardens, courtyards, and museums.
