Jaipur Destination Guide

Rajasthan… the land of sand dunes, gilded palaces and brilliant swirls of color.... At the heart of this pristine Northern desert state rests the capital city of Jaipur, sparkling like a glittering jewel, one that has attracted the attention of visitor and conqueror alike, for centuries. Known for its humbling hospitality, The ‘Pink City’, as it fondly called, played host to the Prince of Wales in 1876, with an awe inspiring gesture, as the then Maharaja ordered all city buildings to be painted pink (the traditional color symbolizing a harmonious welcome) in welcome of the ruling royals.

A modern-day treasure trove, Jaipur has evolved into a well-rounded destination that offers a symphonic mix of culture, an exemplary sampling of architectural genius and distinctive gems that call alluringly to the luxury traveler. Nestled in the cradle of the Aravalis, Reminiscent of a 16th century Mughal palace, the inspired structure that Fairmont Jaipur calls home, shines through as one such gem complete with grand wooden doorways, frangipani-scented pebbled courtyards and gilded halls, with all the comforts to cater to the luxury aficionado.

Rather than partake in a standard tour of the City Palace have the concierge at Fairmont Jaipur pull out all the stops to arrange for an exclusive private dinner at the venue. As you approach the Palace complex, note the exquisite fusion of Rajput, Mughal and European architectural styles. Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II built the palace between 1729 and 1732, entrusting its design to chief architect Vidyadhar Bhattacharya, who designed it in accordance with ancient Hindu texts. Pass through the ornate gates in a procession of horses, elephants and musicians. After viewing the sumptuous courtyards and extensive museum collections, visitors find themselves in the exclusive chambers of the current Maharaja of Jaipur to enjoy a royal feast in a setting that is complete with the enchanting notes from a symphony of sitars and tablas (both instruments used in Indian classical music).
