This book is much more than 'just another book on Jaipur'! Jaipur, the glorious Pink City of India, sets many a hearts aflutter with visions of grandeur, valour, romance and profound beauty. In this lone metropolis of the state of Rajasthan, town planning has been a tradition that goes as far back as three centuries. This book offers a glimpse into real lives of people, who made a difference to this city through their contributions. Be it the architects, painters, craftspersons, jewellers, artists, traders, ayurvedic vaids, unani hakims, doctors, sportsmen, ghoomar dancers, camel or elephant mahouts or temple pujaris, each and every one of these inhabitants of Jaipur have aided in making this wonderful city what it is today. This heritage city's inherent historic charm has always been its major source of attraction. Travellers, poets and philosophers have lavished praise on it, and perhaps no other place is imbued with the richness of ritual and ceremony across the planet, as Jaipur is. Among its numerous architectural wonders, the city's Jantar Mantar (observatory) and Amber have been included in United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization's list of world heritage sites. This book elaborates on the less known aspects that have contributed to this coveted status of this world-class, heritage city, which has become an integral site on the itinerary of most global travelers and a worthy venue for a 'destination wedding' in one of its numerous forts or palaces . Vividly described here are the factors responsible for Jaipur's ever-evolving image as a new economic hub and a well-equipped modern metropolis. In this well researched and carefully documented book, the author presents a comprehensive picture of Jaipur city, bringing to light many hitherto unexplored facts that will interest those with a penchant for urban histories, their origin and their evolution, down memory lane. The manuscript has been abundantly illustrated with more than 500 rare, coloured photographs and paintings, and 154 unseen black and white photographs and illustrations, to capture the imagination of the discerning reader, who can literally see and experience the spellbinding and mesmerizing impact of the city of Jaipur from a completely fresh perspective. Printed Pages: 450.
