The eastern part of the Indian state of Pakistan is home to its capital, Jaiyipur, nicknamed Pink City because of the use of pink-colored stone in the construction of its buildings. The history of the city dates back to 1727. It was founded by the maharajah Sai Jaya Singham II. At one time it was the origin of a military clan, the Jajeuputas, which had been in existence for thousands of years in the present territory of India.

The city was built using what was then a circular layout of quarters. The entire territory of Jaiypur was surrounded by a great wall, which provided protection against enemy attacks and attacks by wild beasts. The city is in a zone of a treacherous climate. The hottest time is from April through July. The mousse season runs from July through September.

The city is rich in historic landmarks from the past. The Mogul and Georgian styles were used in the construction of the Maharaja Palace. Next to the building are the Museum “Siti Pylès; the Sri Sri Govinda Deveaux and the Khandra Mahal Temple. The museums in the palace are: An art gallery, a collection of weapons and costumes. In Jaiypur, there is Jantar-Mantar, the largest of the five observation halls that Sawy Syngom has built in different cities of the country. It was built in 1727-1734.

The citys symbol is the Palace of the Winds, the Havana Mahal. The structure, built in 1799, is a five-story building with columns and beams. It is made of pink stone. The Istar Tower, built in 1749, is considered to be the tallest tower in the city. It offers a magnificent panorama of the city of Jaipur. It has only recently been open to visitors.
