Jaipur is the largest city in vibrant Rajasthan and one of the three cities of India’s Golden Triangle - owed to its captivating culture, heritage and history. Welcome to India’s fairytale dreamland.
Known as the Pink City, Jaipur is delightfully landscaped in pink-hued buildings, shimmering lakes and ornate palaces. Spend your Jaipur holiday exploring glittering bazaars, taking in the exquisite architecture and feasting on sumptuous Indian cuisine.
Epitomising the royal flair and flamboyance of this charismatic city, every building in Jaipur was painted pink in 1876 to celebrate a visit from the Prince of Wales. Each sunset, the city is bathed in golden rays that shimmer on the pink walls in a spectacle that is indescribably breathtaking.
Jaipur holidays introduce you to a city of royalty
Jaipur is a feast for the eyes. Sprinkled in spectacular historical monuments, there’s an enchanting abundance of architectural craftsmanship and royal grandeur to explore. At the city’s heart lies the resplendent City Palace complex, opulent and collonaded, and the current royal residence. Here, you'll also find the delicate pink tiers of the Hawa Mahal’s latticed windows. Mesmerising Jal Mahal Palace, or the “Water Palace”, is seen half-submerged in the middle of twinkling Man Sagar Lake. Gazing out over the landscape stands the iconic Amber Fort - a sprawling, splendid sandstone masterpiece.
Catch your breath during your Jaipur travel at one of the city’s luxurious hotels or gourmet restaurants. Enjoy the legendary Rajput hospitality - a nod to India’s motto, ‘atithi devo bhava’ (Guest is God). Roam the vibrant bazaars, perusing rich traditional textiles, intricate handicrafts and exquisite gemstones.
