Jaipur i/dapr/[2][3] is the capital and largest city of the Indian state of Rajasthan in Northern
India. It was founded on 18 November 1727 by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, the ruler of Amber,
after whom the city is named. The city today has a population of 3.1 million. Jaipur is known as
the Pink City of India.
The city is unusual among pre-modern Indian cities in the regularity of its streets, and the
division of the city into six sectors by broad streets 34 m (111 ft) wide. The urban quarters are
further divided by networks of gridded streets. Five quarters wrap around the east, south, and
west sides of a central palace quarter, with a sixth quarter immediately to the east. The Palace
quarter encloses the Hawa Mahal palace complex, formal gardens, and a small lake. Nahargarh
Fort, which was the residence of the King Sawai Jai Singh II, crowns the hill in the northwest
corner of the old city. The observatory, Jantar Mantar, is one of the World Heritage Sites.[4]
Included on the Golden Triangle tourist circuit, along with Delhi and Agra, Jaipur is an
extremely popular tourist destination in Rajasthan and India.

History
Main articles: History of Jaipur and Kachwaha

Jai Singh II, the founder of the city of Jaipur.


The city of Jaipur was founded in 1727 by Jai Singh II, the Raja of Amer who ruled from 1688 to
1743. Initially, his capital was Dausa, which lies 51 km from Jaipur. He felt the need of shifting
his capital city with the increase in population and growing scarcity of water. The King consulted
several books on architecture and architects before making the layout of Jaipur. Finally, under the
architectural guidance of Vidyadhar Bhattacharya, (initially an accounts-clerk in the Amber
treasury, later promoted to the office of Chief Architect by the King) Jaipur came into existence
on the classical principles of Vastu Shastra and similar classical treatises.
After waging battles with the Marathas, Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II wanted to improve the
security aspects of the city. Being a lover of astronomy, mathematics and astrophysics, Jai Singh
sought advice from Vidyadhar Bhattacharya, a Brahmin scholar of Bengal, to aid him in
designing many buildings, including the Royal Palace in the centre of the city.
The construction of the city began in 1727. It took around four years to complete the major
palaces, roads and square. The city was built following the principles of Shilpa Shastra, the
science of Indian Architecture. The city was divided into nine blocks, two of which contain the
state buildings and palaces, with the remaining seven allotted to the public. Huge ramparts were
built, pierced by seven fortified gates. For a time, during the rule of Sawai Ram Singh, the whole
city was painted pink to welcome Edward, Prince of Wales. Today, avenues remain painted in
pink, giving Jaipur a distinctive appearance.[5] In the 19th century, the city grew rapidly; by 1900
it had a population of 160,000. The wide boulevards were paved and the city had several
hospitals. Its chief industries were the working of metals and marble, fostered by a school of art
(named Madarsa Hunree) founded in 1868. The city had three colleges, including a Sanskrit
college (1865) and a girls' school (1867) opened during the reign of the enigmatic Maharaja
Sawai Ram Singh II. There was a wealthy and enterprising community of native bankers, the
Marwaris; and the administrators Rawana rajput.

Maharaja Rishabh Bhawani Singh, a member of the erstwhile Maharaja family of Jaipur, died on
17 April 2011 at a private hospital in Gurgaon following multiple organ failure.
