Jaipur, the Pink City of India

The obligatory first stop on rivers of North India’s so-called Golden triangle is a switch in dust and modernization’s haphazard sprawl. It’s so much easy to lose an old city created 18 Century by farsighted Maharaja. It may appear an ordinary boring City to you until you know it’s specialties. Known as the Pink City of India the capital of Rajasthan attracts many visitors during the year due to its rich Heritage and Culture. It is a place where one can find the fusion of cultures and traditions with westernization. Age old structures and palaces in, a home to the valiant Rajput, have kept the old world charm intact and still reverberate with its grandeur.

The temples in this Regina of Jaipur are famous for its faith and reliability are famous for its faith and reliability of people towards their god. Temples like Birla Mandir, Khole ke hanuman Ji and many other places have an important place in the heart of a jaipurite.

There is a reason to why people get attracted to this city of marvel heritages. Jaipur has astonished millions of local and international tourists, by date. You can be the one too!
