5 Reasons Why I Love the Ancient Pink City of Rajasthan

Think ‘Indian Royalty,’ and chances are you would immediately think of the royals from the mystical land of Rajasthan. The state has forever intrigued those looking to explore Indian culture, and its capital city of Jaipur perfectly represents the vibrant Rajasthani lifestyle.

Also known as the “Pink City of India,” Jaipur received this sweet nickname in colonial times when Queen Victoria and the Prince of Wales came to India for a tour. Maharaja Sawai Ram Singh of Jaipur decked up the whole city in shades of pink, synonymous with warm hospitality, to welcome them.

Drenched in regal monuments, contemporary arts, crafts, and historical values, Jaipur seduces every traveler to fall in love with the city. Many seek to dine at the finest thali restaurant in Jaipur, hop on to a camel for a ride down the street or even entertain themselves with graceful folk performances that will win their hearts straightaway.

Everyone loves coming to Jaipur for their reasons. Here are the top 5 reasons the Pink City stole my heart:

1. Luxury at Every Step

Jaipur is known to celebrate everything opulent. Therefore, checking into luxury is one of the best ways to start the right foot trip. The LaLiT Jaipur stands tall and proud, symbolic of Rajasthani pride and grandeur. The interior packs in the right amount of modernity with classic Rajasthani art to create a truly inimitable style. This style is now synonymous with The LaLiT Jaipur, making it one of the best luxury hotels in Jaipur. A few perks of staying at the property are beautiful views and excellent service.

2. Grand Visuals for the Sore Eyes

There’s no doubt about India’s sightseeing options, but no one can deny the beauties you will spot in Jaipur as you explore the city more. The stunning forts, museums, historical monuments, and gardens are easily among the top tourist attractions. However, you will also see many tourists making a beeline for the best view of the skyline. The buildings come to life at sunrise and sunset, with differently colored walls sparkling together to create a breathtaking scene.

3. The Scintillating Food Walks

Jaipur is a food haven of dishes and delicacies bound to start a party in your mouth! It’s easy to grab delicious street food at every corner. Golgappas, samosas, bhelpuri – feeding your love for food in the best manner has never been simpler. Dining at Chokhi Dhani is a lovely dining experience that is a must for those visiting Jaipur. Indulging in sweet gear post-lunch is the perfect way to top off your meal.

4. Vibrant Art and Craftwork

A trip to the local markets of Jaipur gives you a small insight into the diligent and exquisite artwork the artisans here are capable of. Drown yourself in the sea of elegant mirrorwork drapes, Resham tops, precious stone and metal jewelry, and décor craftwork, sure to find their way to your homes! Johari, MI Road, and Tripolia Bazaar are the shopping destinations you can’t miss out on.

5. Unparalleled Festive Celebration

The city shows its bright side during festivals, lighting up in different hues, adding to its vibrant nature. Makar Sakranti, Holi, Rakhi, and Diwali are the biggest celebrations. The fun and frolicking in the town during the festive season fill you with unbridled joy and allows you to soak in the warmth emanating from the festivities.
