The City of Victory, Jaipur, was founded by Kachhawaha Rajput King, Maharaja Jai Singh II in 1727, who ruled from 1699 -1744. His took special interest in the designing, planning and execution of the making of this city. This has been divided into nine blocks, two of which were kept for the city palace and other state buildings. The rest were for the public. The city was encircled by a city wall and seven gates opened in to the city.rnIn 1728 maharaja Jai singh II built the observatory, still one of the main tourist attraction's of Jaipur. The old city of Jaipur has neat and broadly laid out avenues, all painted in pink thus giving a magical glow to the city in the evenings. Jaipur has what the most other Indian cities do not have, a combination of cultural and architectural beauty. This is evident in the various historical sites that dot the city. Amongst the most striking monument is the Hawa Mahal. As against the popular belief it is not actually a wind palace, but a sandstone screen, specially built for the ladies of the palace to watch the processions on the roads below, without being seen.rnJaipur is also famous for semi-precious stones and the best place to buy them is the Johari Bazar. Miniatures, handicrafts, clothes, Jewellery of silver and Lakh are the other items that can be bought in Jaipur.

My husband and I thank you for taking such a personal interest in our well-being during our magical tour of Northern India. We didn’t want to leave.
It has been five days since we arrived in India, and so far it has been absolutely wonderful. All the IVAT staff on the ground have taken very good care of us, in a professional and friendly manner.
I (Ann) just spoke with Rajnesh to confirm arrangements for tomorrow a.m. This has been the trip of a lifetime for us so far – almost indescribable.
We wanted to confirm you the good organization of your company during our trip we realized in India end of last October and beginning of November.
Your organization, the people you work with were all accomodating, informative and always punctual whether they were meeting us at the airport, train or hotel.
Thank you for inviting us to the wedding reception tonight. We would have loved to have been there.
