It is also known as the "pink city" indicating to the color of its palaces, havelis, forts and market place, built in pink sandstone. Jaipur means "the city of victory". It was built in 1727 AD by Sawai Jai Singh-II. Surrounded by steep hills on three sides, the whole of the city is surrounded by a fortified enclosure, guarded by seven gates.
On arrival at Jaipur, you will be transferred to the pre-booked hotel. In the afternoon, you will visit the main sites of the center. Your discovery of Jaipur begins with the City Palace and its museum. This vast complex occupies a large area, consisting of palaces, gardens and a succession of courtyards. The palace museum houses collections of rare manuscripts, terrifying weapons, a multitude of costumes, as well as carpets and miniatures.
Continue your discovery towards the Jantar Mantar Observatory, built at the beginning of the 18th century. It is the most famous of the five observatories built by Sawai Jai Singh in India.

The precision of the instruments astonishes and arouses admiration, like the gigantic sundial whose main room is 27 m high.

It shelters behind a five-storey red sandstone facade, adorned with fines chiseled 593 windows and balconies, making the construction much more important than it actually is.
