Jaipur is called the Pink City because at the time, architecture of the town was very advanced and certainly the best in Indian Subcontinent. In 1853, when the Prince of Wales visited Jaipur, the whole city was painted pink to welcome him during the regime of Sawai Ram Singh. Today, avenues remain painted in pink, provide a distinctive appearance to the city.
Jaipur is called the pink city because most of the old buildings of jaipur is painted in pink.

Jaipur was founded in 1727 by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh, the ruler of Amber

In 1876, Jaipur dressed itself pink to welcom Prince Albert and Queen Elizabeth II, and thus the name Pink City stuck to it
