The lovely Pink City of Rajasthan Jaipur was once the bastion of a ruling family, and the city’s three hill forts and a succession of palaces are prominent tourist attractions. Jaipur’s bazaars sell embroidered leather shoes, blue pottery, tie-and-dye scarves, and other exotic products, earning it the nickname “Pink City” due to the colour of the stone used solely in the walled city. In the centre of the Thar Desert, which has moulded its history, culture, and architecture, Western Rajasthan forms a handy circuit.
