History of Jaipur

Jaipur is known to be the first planned city of India and this itself enhances its importance and authenticity. Words can go less when describing about the history of making of Jaipur city. This city dates back its history to the 12th century when the Rajput clan of Kachchwaha came in the Aravalli Hills and made Ajmer their capital. The Kachchwahas belonged to the warrior caste of hindus, fondly called as Kshatriyas. In the 18th century, Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II decided to shift his capital and laid the foundation of Jaipur in 1727. Being a mighty warrior and even a greater astronomer, Jai Singh kept a sharp eye on every detail in the construction of this city.

The whole architecture of the city is based on Shilpa-shastra, that is the hindu style of architecture. Scientifically as well as architecturally, the grandeur of Jaipur was considered the best of the Indian continent. To ensure that Jaipur is secured from all the sides, Jai Singh made the provision of encircling the city with huge fortification walls which opened at seven strong gates. Every fort and palace of this city speaks volumes about the victorious personality of its planner, who is Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II himself. Once can easily feel the romance and the bravery in the air of Jaipur. No doubt that journey to a cultural India will stay incomplete without visiting Jaipur.
