JAIPUR CITY GUIDEDiscover the 'Pink City' the right way $15.00
Welcome to the ‘Pink City’. The capital of
Rajasthan and one of the must-visit stops in the Golden Triangle. A city that
can feel unrelenting, repellent, exhilarating and magical all at the same time.
There’s no such thing as too much. Over the top and opulence knows no limits.
Here Maharajas welcome their guests by painting a whole city pink (the colour
of hospitality and hence it’s name). Ok, ok, you got us. It was done once back
in 1876 for a visiting British Prince, but still, warmth radiates from within
this walled city like an open kiln used to heat its blue pottery masterpieces.
Towering 16th century hillside forts still command over the city. Polished
precious stones appear from holes-in-the-wall down narrow dusty back alleys. It
has beckoned the likes of Kate Winslet and Oprah Winfrey. It has inspired the
collections of legendary fashion tycoons near and far. Its otherworldly
attractions have stood the test of time for hundreds of thousands of selfies.
Whatever you’ve heard about your friend’s friend’s cousin’s sister dropping
about three dress sizes is all liesssss! These lip-smacking thalis, fiery
curries and warm doughy naan have foodies up-sizing not just their palates.
Remain open-minded because whatever reaction the city elicits, it will be a strong
one. But by the end of your trip you will have mastered the art of emotional
flexibility (with a little help from your yogi) at a level that rivals the
tuk-tuks’ skillful swerves around cows on the road. Holy Cow!
