Jaipur takes its name from the famous astronomer prince, Maharaja Jai Singh who founded the city when he moved his capital from the fortress of Amber in 1727. Jaipur was laid out in a rectangular grid and has at its centre the City Palace from which radiate the oleander pink buildings, domes and minarets. Jaipur is encircled on all but the southern side by the rugged Aravali hills with numerous peaks crowned by imposing forts. This legendary "Pink City" is the capital of Rajasthan, built to accommodate 25,000 inhabitants and is now overtaken by the vast population increases and rural-urban migrations of the post independence period.
