History of Jaipur
The history of the Pink City of Jaipur dates back to the 18th century, during the reign of Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II. It was after it became difficult to accommodate the increasing population at Amber (which is about 11 kilometres from Jaipur), Sawai Jai Singh was in search of safe and secure place to built a new city. The paucity of water at Amber further aggravated the problem of increasing population.
It was in 1727, Swai Jai Singh with his architect Vidyadhar Bhattacharya founded the Jaipur city. The city was built adhering to the principles of Shilpa Shastra and thus become the first planned city of India. The city follows grid system with wide straight roads, streets and lanes. One can find uniform rows of shops on either side of main roads. As a security measure from external aggression, the city was en-circled with a strong wall with seven gates.
Jaipur is still one of the beautiful cities in India with most of its forts and palaces perfectly in shape. Forts and palaces in and around Jaipur are what attract tourists to the Pink City.
