Jaipur

Jaipur is known as the "Pink City" for the colour of its facades. This old and historic city was planned in 1727 on a nine part rectangular grid and at the same time, the nine old-town quarters of Jaipur symbolize the Brahmin Hindu cosmos. At the palace the open-air observatory Jantar Mantar also fits in well with this cosmic association.
