History of the city holds that the modern Jaipur was founded in 1727 by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, the ruler of Amber, after whom the city has been named. Initially, his capital was Amber, which lies 11 km from Jaipur and he felt the need of shifting his capital city with the increase in population and growing scarcity of water.
Today too, many avenues of the city remain painted in pink, giving Jaipur a distinctive appearance and the name 'Pink City'.
