As soon as you arrive to the city you will catch on the local idea that ''Jaipur does and India repeats''. This is due to the fact that Jaipur is a kind of think tank in the Indian world and today it tends to changes. With the new-world orientation Jaipur initiates more space in the city. Thus, its court areas are more open, gardens are about external vistas and water fountains have sprung up throughout the city.
The same is about architecture that always feature a huge dose of ornamentation, but today it is even more opulent. You can see how Jaipur changes right before your eyes on your sightseeing tour.

Not of a well-known fact, but Jaipur is planned according to a conventional nine-grid pattern that is a sign of good fortune to eastern world astrologers. This is why reinforcing with modern changes, Jaipur is yet grounded in its past days. The city will take you to the times of royalty, and the maharajas who once lived in today's abandoned forts and palaces.
In addition, Jaipur won the nickname of Pink City for its red-stone facade and romantic charm. With walls colored in red, Jaipur seems like a typical destination to indulge in old bazaars and historic sites, but you can take all prejudices away and hit this city for yourself.
