Jaipur – The Pink Marvel

Rajasthan's capital; is an enthralling historical city and the gateway to India's most flamboyant state. The city’s colorful, chaotic streets ebb and flow with a heady brew of old and new. Careering buses dodge dawdling camels, leisurely cycle-rickshaws frustrate swarms of motorbikes, and everywhere buzzing auto rickshaws watch for easy prey. In the midst of this mayhem, the splendors of Jaipur’s majestic past are islands of relative calm evoking a different pace and another world.
