When was it established?
You may be surprised to know that Jaipur is being called the first planned city of India. But this is true. This city was settled on 18 November 1727. It was settled by King Jai Singh II of Amer. That is why this city was named Jaipur after him. At that time, it took Raja Jai ​​Singh 4 years to settle this city completely. After being settled by King Jai Singh, this city was made the capital of Amer. Amer is still located at some distance from Jaipur, Amer also has a very big fort, it is said that Akbar’s queen Jodha Bai was born in this fort.

It was designed by a Bengali architect
Research on history reveals that Raja Jai ​​Singh got the design made by Bengali architect Vidyadhar Bhattacharya to settle this city. Bhattacharya was on the post of Naib Daroga in Amer court. But his knowledge of architecture was very good and seeing his interest, Raja Jai ​​Singh got Bhattacharya to plan the city of Jaipur. Impressed by his ability, Maharaja Jai ​​Singh made him the city planner of his new capital Jaipur.

What things were kept in mind while establishing the city?
While settling this city, the king had made proper arrangements for collecting and draining out rainwater. This arrangement is not seen in most cities even today. Along with this, according to Vaastu, the king had also built many doors to exit this city. Today Jaipur has become a tourist destination.

Why is it called the Pink City?
This city, surrounded by Aravali mountains on three sides, is called the Pink City. The reason for this is that in the year 1876, Maharaja Sawai Ramsingh decorated the entire city in pink color to welcome Queen Elizabeth of England and Prince of Wales Prince Albert. Since then, this city started being called the Pink City. This city is also called the Paris of India.
