Jaipur is the capital of Rajasthan and was founded on November 18, 1727, by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II ruled over Jaipur. Before Jaipur, his capital was Amber, which was 11 kilometers away from Jaipur. As the population increased, the king felt it necessary to move the capital. The city's building began in 1727, and it took around four years to complete the principal palaces and roadways. In designing the city, the principles of Vastu Shastra were largely followed. The city of Jaipur is divided into nine blocks, two of which are palaces and national buildings. The remaining seven blocks are assigned to common people to live. From a security point of view, huge walls and seven fortified city gates were built around the city. The architecture of this city is considered to be the best in the Indian subcontinent at that time. In 1878, the Prince of Wales visited the city of Jaipur. To welcome the prince, the entire city was painted pink. Since that time, the moniker "Pink City" has been coined.
