Founded in 1727, Jaipur is Rajasthan’s capital city and is part of India’s Golden Triangle along with Agra and Delhi. The city is commonly known as the ‘Pink City’ because in 1876, Maharaja Ram Singh of Jaipur painted almost the whole city pink to welcome the Prince of Wales and Queen Victoria. Sitting in Jaipur’s heart is the City Palace, home to the former royal family; the Jantar Mantar and just outside of the city is Jaipur’s crown jewel, the magnificent Amber Fort.
Agra – The Taj Mahal
