Walking through the streets of Jaipur City is a pleasure that people often describe at great lengths in their travelogues. Still, a large number of visitors miss just that. For they are not aware that the city of Jaipur with its residential quarters is as worthy to be seen as its incomparable uncountable monuments. There is still confusion in policy makers whether to call Jaipur a heritage city or a city of heritages – it has the best of both. The way people perform their crafts and sell commodities from the shops lined up on both sides of the streets and lanes is extremely photogenic, as if it is an artificial scene created for tourists. But the fact is that it is business as usual, and as always.
Jaipur is an extremely well proportioned city, quite unusual among other historic Indian Cities, planned to the minutest detail and to the smallest structure. Serving as thoroughfares for the ever important processions, the wide and straight main streets have uniform sized and shaped shops on both sides with no residential quarters opening up on them. Only the temples open up on main streets. The rectangular blocks made by intersections of the main streets have the residential mansions known as havelis opening up on shadowy smaller streets known as rastas and galis, each one having its characteristic names. The names of the lanes (for instance, Khazane walon ka rasta, Maniharon ka rasta, Topkhane ka rasta, Lalji Saand ka rasta, Jat ke Kuen ka rasta, Dinanathji ki gali…) are so interesting and inviting, it becomes worthwhile to explore each one. These lanes have a judicious mix of public wells, temples of different deities, chaurahas (crossroads), chowks (squares) and shops of various artisans where they manufacture and sell at the same spot. The huge squares of main streets, known as chaupers, are conveniently located so that they can be easily reached from any of the massive gates of this walled city. They are the ideal places to glimpse the entire gamut of social activity which changes every hour of the day.
This ever-prosperous trade center has no dearth of modern flavors added to it. Besides its many amusement parks, Jaipur has the most lavish cinema theatreRajmandir, the very impressive Birla Convention Center, a number of clubs, golf course and Polo grounds. The opulence-personified Rambagh Palace and the luxury-personified Rajvilaas are two of the world’s best hotel resorts that Jaipur proudly has, among many others. A number of impressive havelis of noblemen in Jaipur Royal family are now tasteful heritage hotels. If everything else fails to impress you, Jaipur’s bazaars will not, as they make this city a shopper’s ultimate delight. Those not interested in shopping, can see how the crafts are made – in Jaipur itself or in the nearby Sanganer and Bagru towns.
Come to Jaipur anytime and you are welcomed with its touch of class. Come for any reasons. For its mouthwatering delicacies offered at street sides to classy restaurants… to participate in its uncountable processions and festivities… to join its many music and dance schools… for top-notch excursions around the city… to just shop till you drop… to spend some moments of regality in palaces, pomp, show and mock weddings…
Jaipur was painted pink in honor of a British Prince visiting this city, hence its name Pink City. The city still blushes pink in honor of its guests.
