Why is Jaipur Pink?
The history of the pink city goes back to the 1876 Royal visit to India by Prince Albert. The Maharajah of Jaipur, Sawai Ram Singh, wanted to impress the English aristocracy with a visit from the prince so he cleverly built a Concert Hall in the Prince’s honour, named the Albert Concert Hall (a popular tourist destination today). Then the Maharajah had the entire city repainted in the colour pink!
Traditionally pink represents hospitality and welcome in India so it’s truly a fitting colour. After the prince’s visit the Maharajah’s first wife loved the pink so much, that the law was changed to require every building in the city to be painted pink. This law is still in effect today! Nowadays, Jaipur is a popular destination because it’s a good walking city and there’s plenty of historic and architectural wonders to explore….see things to see below…
Palatial and Peaceful:
Jaipur is a bustling city but the Oberoi Rajvilas is perfectly positioned 30 minutes away from the hurly burly of the city in a peaceful spot by Lake Pushkar. This award-winning hotel is designed as a luxurious and relaxing retreat surrounded by extensive gardens and landscaping, exotic birdlife including magnificent peacocks, and decorative blue pools. Constructed around an 18th century temple to Shiva, the designers have created a contemporary hotel in the architectural style of a classical Indian fort.
This oasis of calm is tranquil and peaceful in the middle of frenetic, chaotic India.Guest Comment.

History of Rajvilas:
Back in the 1990’s Rajvila’s owner wanted to build an elegant hotel based on traditional Rajasthani artisanship, with contemporary luxury, and as a benchmark for Indian 5-star hotels. He found that India’s renovated palace hotels just weren’t living up to the expectations of visitors, so he created a game-changing hotel experience in Jaipur. While guests adore the architecture and ambiance of Rajvilas they also comment that the staff are incredibly professional, kind and considerate. You’ll find Rajvilas is a safe and peaceful retreat while you experience the sights of Jaipur…
