India: Jaipur - The City of Palaces

India: Jaipur - The City of Palaces

The northwest state of Rajasthan, which is almost 60% desert, boasts Jaipur - "the Pink City," "the City of Palaces," as its shining capital. It is one of the three cities that form India's golden triangle of tourism, the other two being Delhi and Agra. Host Sian Richard and Ajay Sharma start the tour of the Royal City at one of Jaipur's most popular and beautiful attractions, the City Palace Complex. Designed and built by an 18th-century Maharajah named Jai Singh, each home is obliged by law to maintain a pink fa├žade to match the city palace. The architecture is a blend of Rajasthani and Mughal designs, stonework and craftsmanship. Chef Praveen prepares the evening meal, Lal Maas, which means red meat. Next Sian visits another incredible structure built by Jai Singh, the Jantar Mantar, an early 18th-century stone and marble observatory. Here the chief astronomer, Prakash Sharma, shows how an ancient and sophisticated timepiece, a very precise sundial, functions. Next Sian meets Mr. Darbari, who shows how the world-famous process of Rajasthani Block Printing is done. Then we visit Fort Amber, 10 miles outside of Jaipur, and once the capital of Rajasthan. In the palace we see the beautiful Chambers of the Queens and Kings; plus the Hall of Mirrors. 07/09DE JSCA 30 min.
