Pinkalicious Jaipur

The pictures below will give you an idea on why Jaipur earned the nickname Pink City.  In 1876, during the reign of Sawai Ram Singh, the city was painted pink to welcome Edward, Prince of Wales and Queen Victoria. Couple of other cities in Rajasthan are also associated with colors – Jodhpur (Blue City) and Jaiselmer (Golden City).
