The Things that happened in Jaipur in 2019 and we can never forget

The wonderful year 2019 is soon going to get over in a few days. But, before we all step into another eventful year, which will have its own bag of challenges and goodies, let’s have a quick look into the past and take on this ride to cherish so many changes that Jaipur went through in 2019. Hop on..

  1. UNESCO World Heritage SiteUNESCO
    Jaipur is a smart city now with all the techno advances in traffic, residences and public places. But what keeps it among the top-notch cities to travel is its heritage character! In the year 2019, the Pink City received its much-deserved title of the “World Heritage Site! Yes, if you missed it let us let you, not just a few monuments but the entire Jaipur is UNESCO World Heritage Site!

 

2. Congress Government

Congress Gov

Although the swap of government is nothing new to us Jaipurites, this year with the commencement of Lok Sabha elections, the Congress candidate, Mr Ashok Gehlot became the Chief Minister of Jaipur.

 

3. All-women Gandhi Nagar Railway Station

Gandhi Nagar Railway Station

This became the moment of honour for all of us. In a step towards women empowerment, the Indian Railways have handed over the Gandhi Nagar railway station to an allwomen crew. And, Jaipur’s Gandhi Nagar became the country’s first allwomen railway station. Couldn’t be more proud!

 

4. Cleanest Railway Station

Cleanest Railway Station

Jaipur Municipal Corporation’s response to Swach Bharat Abhiyaan is not limited to residential, commercial areas or streets but the Railway Stations too took it seriously. To treat single-use plastic, bottle crushing machines have been planted at Jaipur Junction and Gandhinagar Jaipur stations and the staff on duty is always on their toes to keep the railway stations clean. As a result of the management’s hard work and travellers’ co-operation, Jaipur Junction has topped the tally among 720 stations covered all over the country.

 

5. Friendliest Cities in the World

Friendliest Cities

“Padharo Mhare Des”- we Jaipurites not only say this metaphor but figuratively, live it! With welcoming gestures and warm hospitality, Jaipur wins the hearts of travellers from across the globe. In an international survey, which took place early in the year, the ‘pink cityhas been ranked 35th in the list of 50 cities from all over the world, for being welcoming, “student-friendly”, and “popular on the tourist trail”. Hence, giving you more reasons to travel to Jaipur doubt free 🙂

 

6. Jaipur rated as most Instagrammed UNESCO World Heritage Site

Most Instagrammed

Our city is known for its old-world charm – usually referred to as ‘pink city’ owing to its iconic colour of buildings. In the year 2019, a new study from The Latin America Travel Company has analyzed that Jaipur is the most popular UNESCO Sites according to Instagram. We were not surprised. With a gamut of mesmerizing monuments, spellbinding palaces and intriguing streets, Jaipur would always be on the insta feeds of many!

9. The wave of Clubbing Culture

Until last year, Jaipur did not have a very sound and vibrant nightlife like Berlin or Barcelona but the year 2019 gave us party hoppers all the good reasons to rejoice! With the entry of sensational nightlife check-ins like Playboy and Club Trove, Jaipurites have got more reasons to don their swanky clothes and hit the dance floor!

10. Forever 21

The month of Love, “February” showered us with Los Angeles’ high street fashion through the launch of Forever 21 store at WTP!

The Walled City marked as a UNESCO World Heritage Site

The royal city of India Jaipur has recently made the entry in UNESCO World Heritage Sites.  For its arcade and royal architecture, Jaipur has always been on the heritage list.  The announcement was made after the 43rd session of the UNESCO World Heritage Committee at Baku (Azerbaijan). As Jantar Mantar has been already marked as World Heritage Site and now as the wall city has bagged the title is a proud moment for all of us.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed his happiness through Twitter and posted “Jaipur is a city associated with culture and valour. Elegant and energetic, Jaipur’s hospitality draws people from all over. Glad that this city has been inscribed as a World Heritage Site by @UNESCO.

“The city was proposed to be nominated for its value of being an exemplary development in town planning and architecture that demonstrates an amalgamation and important exchange of ideas in the late medieval period. In town planning, it shows an interchange of ancient Hindu, Mughal and contemporary Western ideas that resulted in the form of the city,” UNESCO

Things no one tells you about the marvellous doors of City Palace, Jaipur.

In the inner courtyard of City Palace, Pritam Niwas Chowk has four small gates known as Ridhi Sidhi Pol, which are elaborately decorated in brilliant colours. This courtyard is dominated by Chandra Mahal which is said to be the most charming courtyard in City Palace.
