Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan is popularly known as the 'Pink City'. This beautiful old city is situated in a semi desert territory of India and is the first city in India which was planned according to 'Vaastu Shastra'.

Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, King of Amber, with the help of an architect from Bengal known as Vidyadhar Bhattacharya planned this beautiful city and in 1727 A.D. he laid the foundation of Jaipur which displays a remarkable harmony and architectural splendor.
The city is divided into 9 blocks, with wide roads crossing each other at right angles. The main streets measure up to 100 metres wide, with streets measuring up to 30 meters. Jaipur is also surrounded by an 18 ft wall, which has 7 gates in all. The reason to keep seven gates was that the general public lived in only 7 blocks, while the remaining 2 were reserved for administration and palace.
