Located 260 km (162 miles) from the Indian capital New Delhi, Jaipur forms a part of the west Golden Triangle tourist circuit along with Agra (240 km, 149 mi). Jaipur is a popular tourist destination in India and serves as a gateway to other tourist destinations in Rajasthan such as Jodhpur (348 km, 216 mi), Jaisalmer (571 km, 355 mi) and Udaipur (421 km, 262 mi). -Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

The Pink in the city of Jaipur was something I looked and couldn’t find, looked more like clay red to me, but sometimes I really dont trust my eyes..
