Jaipur, the "PINK CITY OF INDIA" was founded in 1727 AD. by Sawai Jai Singh II and was named after him.
In 1863 Jaipur dressed itself in PINK to welcome Prince Albert, consort of Queen Victoria. The coulor became an integral part of the city and it came to be known as `The Pink City`. The capital city of Rajasthan still preserves its rich heritage and culture and is a fine blend of antiquity and modernity.

Wow, that is some view! Excellently framed by the earthy red buildings (although they are pink?) with lots of interesting street action. You composed and captured this extremely well, I would only like to see it straigthened a little - the two posts in the middle would be a good refernce.
Tack och vänliga hälsningar,
