Pink City Jaipur

The capital of the Indian state of Rajasthan and well-decorated, this colorful city was founded in 182 during the reign of Maharaja Jaysingh II. To welcome the Prince of Wales (Edward VII) in 18, the then King Sawai Ram Singh painted the whole city pink. So it is also called Pink City.




Unable to resist the urge to visit this beautiful city, I went out in the heat. We started this journey of four people from Dhaka. First, take a bus from Dhaka to Kolkata, then a Duronto Express train from Kolkata to New Delhi, and then take a taxi from a travel agency in New Delhi to Jaipur. The warm dry heat and sun-burned trees welcome us.





There are many places to visit in Jaipur such as Amer Fort / Amber Fort, Jaigarh Fort, Nahargarh Fort, Jal Mahal, Hawa Mahal, City Palace, Albert Hall Museum, Raj Mandir Cinema Hall, Jantar-mantar, and several stone carved temples. The forts here are so beautiful that a lot can be said about each of them. But Amer Fort / Amber Fort is one of them. The sadha of coming here on the back of an elephant-like a king and riding on a camel has also been fulfilled.





Transportation: I reserved a car to visit the sights. It saves both time and cost and also had safety especially when going to the fort on the hill. You can also go by local auto.

Cost: The cost of the four of us, including food from the hotel at night on a two-day trip, is Rs 3,200 per person (Delhi-Jaipur-Delhi). You have to buy a separate ticket for each place. As foreigners, we have to count the ticket price more.

The taste of LASSIWALA’s lassi is still on the tongue on the way back from the local market.
