There are many things to see and do when you visit India, and the fortified city of Jaipur, in India’s northwest state of Rajasthan should be on your to-do-list.
Also known as The Pink City, Unesco described the town best when they pointed out it's uniqueness. "Unlike other cities in the region located in hilly terrain, Jaipur was established on the plain and built according to a grid plan interpreted in the light of Vedic architecture."
The pink palace is just one highlight when you visit Jaipur, and there's a lot more to see and do.
The architecture and historical value is one of the main reasons Unesco declared the city a World Heritage Site.
Unesco said: "The streets (of Jaipur) feature continuous colonnaded businesses that intersect in the centre, creating large public squares called chaupars. Markets, stalls, residences and temples built along the main streets have uniform facades."
