Jaipur Palace of the Winds
Jaipur, popularly known as the "Pink City", and "Paris of India", is the capital of Rajasthan state, India. The city was founded in 1727 by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, a Kachawaha Rajput, who ruled from 1699-1744. Initially his capital was Amber (now pronounced as Amer).
In 1853, when the Prince of Wales visited Jaipur, the whole city was painted pink to welcome him. Jaipur got the name "Pink City" at that time. The old city (known as four-wall city) is still painted and maintained in pink.
