From the highest point of Nahargarh fort to the deepest point of Man Sagar Lake, the aura of pink running through the veins of Jaipur makes it one of the most amazing cities to not just explore, but also to live in.
Built as beautiful walled city years and years ago by the royal Rajput rulers, Jaipur has always been the hub of heritage and culture. To add a beautiful edge to it, the walled city has caught a high pace on development and growth along with conserving the original essence of it.
From the mesmerizing spots at the ancient Amer, Nahargarh and Jaigarh Forts to the newest Experience Centre and Dravyavati River Project, the city is almost a perfect metaphor for Magic Realism. Truly traditional to the core till date, the city area still remains painted in the colour that names it the Pink City. On the other hand, the city is all set to set up sky high standards with being a metro city as well as a smart city.
