Jaipur India - The Pink City - And Jantar Mantar

Jaipur was an amazing first stop to tour after flying in from Delhi. Jaipur, Agra, and Delhi are the three cities that comprise the Golden Triangle, India's most famous tourist region.

Jaipur is known as the Pink City, supposedly because the buildings were painted earthy red in honor of the 1876 visit of the Prince of Wales.

One of the stops we made on our first day, touring with a private driver, was Jantar Mantar a collection of architectural astronomical instruments built by a maharaja in the 1700s.
