Jaipur Cityscapes | जयपुर नगरदृश्य



Jaipur, also popularly known as the Pink City, is the capital and largest city of the Indian state of Rajasthan.

During the British rule in India, Jaipur was the capital of the princely state of Jaipur. Founded on 18 November 1727 by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, the ruler of Amber, the city today has a population of more than 3.2 million.

Jaipur is the first planned city of India, located in the semi-desert lands of Rajasthan. The city which once had been the capital of the royalty now is the capital city of Rajasthan. The very structure of Jaipur resembles the taste of the Rajputs and the Royal families. At present, Jaipur is a major business center with all requisites of a metropolitan city.

The city is remarkable among pre-modern Indian cities for the width and regularity of its streets which are laid out into six sectors separated by broad streets 111 ft (34 m) wide. The urban quarters are further divided by networks of gridded streets. Five quarters wrap around the east, south, and west sides of a central palace quarter, with a sixth quarter immediately to the east. The Palace quarter encloses a sprawling palace complex, (Hawa Mahal), formal gardens, and a small lake. Nahargarh Fort, which was the residence of the King Sawai Jai Singh II, crowns the hill in the northwest corner of the old city. The observatory, Jantar Mantar, is one of the World Heritage Sites. Jaipur is a popular tourist destination in Rajasthan and India.

जयपुर जिसे गुलाबी नगरी के नाम से भी जाना जाता है, भारत में राजस्थान राज्य की राजधानी है। यह जयपुर नाम से प्रसिद्ध प्राचीन रजवाड़े की भी राजधानी रहा है। इस शहर की स्थापना १७२८ में आंबेर के महाराजा जयसिंह द्वितीय द्वारा की गयी थी। आज भी यहां के महाराजा महाराज भवानी सिंह (जन्म:१९३१) हैं। जयपुर अपनी समृद्ध परंपरा, संस्कृति और ऐतिहासिक महत्व के लिए प्रसिद्ध है। यह शहर तीन ओर से अरावली पर्वतमाला से घिरा हुआ है।जयपुर शहर की पहचान यहाँ के महलों और पुराने घरों में लगे गुलाबी धौलपुरी पत्थरों से होती है जो यहाँ के स्थापत्य की खूबी है। १८७६ में तत्कालीन महाराज सवाई मानसिंह ने इंग्लैंड की महारानी एलिज़ाबेथ प्रिंस ऑफ वेल्स युवराज अल्बर्ट के स्वागत में पूरे शहर को गुलाबी रंग से आच्छादित करवा दिया था। तभी से शहर का नाम गुलाबी नगरी पड़ा है।

जयपुर को आधुनिक शहरी योजनाकारों द्वारा सबसे नियोजित और व्यवस्थित शहरों में से गिना जाता है। शहर के वास्तुकार मिर्जा इस्माइल का नाम आज भी प्रसिद्ध है।१९वीं सदी में इस शहर का विस्तार शुरु हुआ तब इसकी जनसंख्या १,६०,००० थी जो अब बढ़ कर २००१ के आंकड़ों के अनुसार २३,३४,३१९ हो चुकी है।

No the people riding the vehicles and sitting in the park are heritage structures.
