Pink City ‘Jaipur’ or ‘Joypur’, yes, as the name indicates the city comes in the bracket of the top 10 happiest cities globally. The most well-planned city in the country Jaipur is globally renowned for its handlooms, textiles, readymade garments, gems and jewellery, handicraft, and carpet industries. It is one of the largest exporters of gold, diamond, and stone jewelry in Asia.
Apart from this, another major reason for seeing the city in the highest happiest index is that here Jaipurites without following particular religious festivity always with full enthusiasm and zeal enjoy all the festivals be it Diwali, Eid, Christmas, Mahavir Jayanti, Lohri, Chetichand, Sankranti or Gangaur.
Famous for mojadis, lehariya with tie and dye printed clothes, semi-precious jewellery, the pink city is a major hub of tourism also. Foreigners love to do local market shopping at Jaipur’s Bapu Bazar’s Saraogi Mansion, Tripoliya Bazar, and Johari Bazar as these markets are commonly known as shopper’s paradise where one can find handicrafts and clothes at reasonable pricing.
Foodies can satisfy their food craving or hunger with an array of delicious food items available here like Rawat’s pyaaz ki kachori, Dal Bati Churma, chaats, LMB’s famous ghewar, and even Pandit’s Matka kulfi.
All cities of Rajasthan state are famous for their rich culture and heritage. The capital city of Rajasthan, i.e., Jaipur is known as the mini metro where one can find a melange of contemporary culture with ethnicity and rituals. People love to wear traditional bright coloured attires not only at festivals but otherwise too.
Women in colourful lehnga chunri love to put mehndi on their hands especially on the occasion of Sinjara Teej. On this day Teej Mata procession takes out from the famous City Palace and passing from Tripolia Bazaar, Choti Chaupar ends at Talkatora. The royal procession of ‘Goddess Teej’ comprises of camels, dancing folk artists, royal chariots, and bullock carts.
Colourfully decorated elephants are seen often on the streets. Situated amid Aravali hills, heritage buildings like Jal Mahal, Nahargarh, Amber Fort, and Museum are well preserved in Jaipur by the state government of Rajasthan.
