A point of India’s Golden Triangle, Jaipur is the capital and gateway to the elaborate grandeur of the state of Rajasthan. Here, the streets are populated with locals who still wear colourful, traditional dress and full of breathtaking architecture – the buildings of the old ‘Pink City’ such as the City Palace and Hawa Mahal, are the best known. Painted pink, the colour of hospitality, to welcome the Prince of Wales for a visit in 1876, it is in the old city that you’ll spend most of your time. Founded in 1727 as one of the world’s first planned cities, the streets and alleys of the Pink City today are full of vibrant bazaars selling textiles, jewellery and fragrant spices and a pleasure to explore.
