Jaipur is called the Pink City because at the time, architecture

of the town was very advanced and certainly the best in Indian

Subcontinent. In 1853, when the Prince of Wales visited Jaipur, the

whole city was painted pink to welcome him during the regime of

Sawai Ram Singh. Today, avenues remain painted in pink, provide a

distinctive appearance to the city.

Jaipur is called the pink city because most of the old buildings

of jaipur is painted in pink. Save




It was painted to Pink, as the king want to show Price of Wales,

the diversities of Jaipur, as if you mix all the colors it would

come out to be dark brick red (Pink), with which they painted all

the buildings.
