Planning A Trip To Jaipur? Here’s a detailed Jaipur tourism and travel guide to help you plan a memorable holiday Built in the 18th century by Maharaja Jai Singh II and named after him, Jaipur is the largest city in Rajasthan and is also the gateway to other cities in the state for tourism. Jaipur has a regal charm that would take you back to when the city and state flourished under the Rajput reign. Much of the city’s architectural credit goes to Vidyadhar Bhattacharya, the chief architect and city planner who designed the layout of the Jaipur city in the early 1700s.
Following a long history of attacks and conquering, in 1922, when Maharaja Man Singh ascended the throne, numerous civic amenities were built and the city flourished under his rule. Post-independence, the princely state of Jaipur merged with Jodhpur, Jaisalmer and Bikaner to form the current day Rajasthan and Jaipur remains its capital city.
