The city of Jaipur exists as a microcosm for Rajasthan. If there is one place to see the culture and tradition of Rajasthan within the purview of a city, then Jaipur is where it all conglomerates. It has glimpses of everything for which Rajasthan is famous. The city of towering forts and majestic palaces, Jaipur has a glorious past. It is a place where sacrificing lives for the dignity and honour was not sole proprietorship of men. Women have run shoulder to shoulder to men in matters of valour and bravery committing Jauhar (enmass suicide) to save the dignity and honour of their clans.

Sawai Jai Singh II who ruled 1688 to 1744 founded Jaipur, the Rose Pink capital city of Rajasthan. He was a great warrior, visionary in science and astrology. The Great Warrior laid the foundation of the city in 1627. He was instrumental in making Jaipur one of the progressive cities of medieval times. Undoubtedly, the city was well planned, structured, and had one of the best drinking water solutions in the medieval world.
