Jaipur, Rajasthan - The Pink City!

Written on: Tuesday June 9th, 2009

A journal entry from: In the spiced Indian air....

Our last stop on our 3 day road trip was Jaipur in Rajasthan, the desert state.  I so badly wanted to spend a good amount of time here, there are so many unique cities.  After seeing Jaipur, it was only a taste and it definitely left me wanting to come back!  Someday...

We did a quick whirlwind tour of the city: up to an old fort used to defend the city, the queen's tomb and a textile factory where I treated myself to a gorgeous bedspread!

The city itself is really neat as well, part of it is completely painted pink!  It now is more of a teracotta colour, but the effect is still the same. We also saw Amber Palace, which true to it's name is also painted a teracotta colour. We again got lost in the maze of rooms and corridors! 

We now head back to Delhi to catch our flight out of India.  So sad :(
