Je na dekkhyo Jaipario
To manakh jamaraa mein aakar kaai kariyoa?

If one has not seen Jaipur,
One has seen nothing

Jaipur, also known as The Pink City, because of the rose color of its old fort and city palace, is one of the most beautiful cities of India .  It is just five hours south of Delhi and is close to historical places such as Mt. Abu , Agra (the famous town housing the Taj Mahal) and Pushkar. 

Jaipur is the capital of Rajasthan, the largest state in India located at the threshold of the Thar Desert .  It is home to the prestigious University of Rajasthan as well as many private colleges and schools.  While Jaipur offers services to foreign tourists (internet cafes, restaurants, etc.), it is not primarily a tourist city and retains a variety of local traditions. 

In fact, Jaipur, as well as Rajasthan as a whole, is known as the most traditionally preserved state in the country. A city at the green foothills of the Aravalli Mountain Range, Jaipur is a place of ancient forts, palaces and temples.  Known for its weaving and dyeing traditions, Jaipur flaunts the most colorfully dressed people in India , their brilliance offset by the backdrop of the desert landscape. 

The city is surrounded by a ring of villages that make for wonderful excursions where students can learn about local crafts and agricultural traditions as well as practice their Hindi. Being a desert city, Jaipur is pleasantly cool at night and warm during the day. The rainy season runs from June to September, when it often rains in the afternoons.
