Photographer's Note

In the streets of Jaipur...

Jaipur is the capital and largest city of the Indian state of Rajasthan and the first planned city of India. It belongs to the tourist Golden Triangle of Delhi, Jaipur and Agra.

Jaipur is often called the Pink City in reference to its distinctly coloured buildings, which were originally painted this color to imitate the red sandstone architecture of Mughal cities. The present earthy red color originates from repainting of the buildings undertaken for a visit by the Prince of Wales in 1876.
