The city of Jaipur is capital to the
northern Indian state of Rajasthan, famous for its colorful culture, forts,
palaces, and lakes. The city extends from latitude 26.55° in the north to
longitude 75.52° in the east. Jaipur would have been a part of the Thar
Desert but for the protection afforded by the Aravali Hills that form a
barrier on one side. Jaipur is around 258 km from Delhi, 232 km from Agra,
350 km from Gwalior, 405 km from Udaipur, and 1,202 km from Mumbai.
