Jaipur is the administrative capital of Rajasthan and founded and built in 1726 by Maharaja Jai Singh II. The walls of the city were painted pink to welcome the Prince of Wales, Edward VII in 1876 and then earned the nickname, the ‘Pink City’. It is the tenth most populous city in the country and fuels its economy with tourism, education and the manufacture of textiles and jewellery. Jaipur is connected to major cities by a network of well planned National Highways. The RSRTC operated buses to major cities in the North and the JCTSL runs within the city. Jaipur is the headquarters of the North Western Zone of the Indian Railways with the Jaipur Railway Station being the main terminus for the city. The Jaipur International Airport, about 10 km from the city centre, operates flights to every metropolitan city in the country and the Middle East. Jaipur is a popular tourist location for both domestic and foreign travellers.
