Jaipur


Of all the princely states of yore in India, Rajputana (the region around Jaipur) is undoubtedly the one with the most martial record. It was a state of warring factions locked in deadly warfare, thousands of royal ladies consigning themselves to flames preferring death to dishonor. In this land, towering forts were built not only for ostentation but also to intimidate the enemy. Today, Jaipur is the personification of the old order influence the new. An inherent feel for color and design percolated ever stratum of society, and jewelry, crafts and architecture became objects of delight equally between prince and peasant.
