Jaipur

Jaipur

Jaipur is the largest city in the northwestern desert province of Rajasthan. It was built in the eighteenth century by Maharaja Jai Singh II and was India’s first planned city. In 1876, Maharaja Ram Singh painted the entire city pink (the color of hospitality) to welcome the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII) to the city. It’s not far from Agra and the Amber Fort. I attended Mass here as well.
