Jaipur holidays

Jaipur, which means ‘the city of victory’, was founded in 1727. Popularly known as the ‘Pink City’, it was the dream of the Rajput ruler Jai Singh. Jaipur’s prime attraction for visitors is the sprawling palace complex, still home to the current maharaja. It includes the Hawa Mahal, a fascinating museum of the maharajas’ lavish possessions, and Sawai Jai Singh’s Jantar Mantar observatory. Jaipur is also a delight for those seeking traditional Indian crafts, including jewellery, silver and silk. Just outside Jaipur, the magnificent palace of Amber Fort is a must-visit for the way it blends Mughal and Hindu elements. The city offers a wide choice of accommodation, from traditional havelis (mansions) to ornate palaces converted into hotels, as well as the more usual modern, luxurious options.
