Brief History of Jaipur

Maharaja Jai Singh founded Jaipur in 1727, and the meticulously planned city reflects the ruler’s love of mathematics and science.  The city is surrounded by a wall with seven gates, which were built to protect the residents from enemies and outside threats. The development took only four years and adhered to Vastu Shastra principles. Jaipur was built on a grid system and was divided into nine rectangular sectors known as Chokris. In 1876, the entire town was painted terracotta pink to welcome the Prince of Wales, and Jaipur became known as the ‘Pink City’ from then on. The city is still known by that name, and the pastel-colored walls are repainted each year to maintain their vibrancy. Only the old city, however, retains the lovely pink hues.
