Jaipur is also known as the "pink city". This because of the color of which are painted the walls of the old main neighborhood of the city. By now in pink, compared to the size of the city of the present day, there is very little. But the visual impact of this old neighborhood is definitely pleasant. The life of the pink city is really hectic.. the chaos reigns supreme, with people, cars and motorcycles really everywhere and always in motion.

Also in the heart of the neighborhood and there is the city palace, the former headquarters of the sovereign of the city in the past.
