As part of Classic India series, this book is a collector's item and a visual delight.
Jaipur is, in some sways, a microcosm of India; in other ways a city like no other in the country. Here the old and the new exist in a curious fusion, with memories of a royal past merging with the pageantry of crowded streets and itinerant markets. Jaipur is a showpiece of palace architecture, the gem and jewelry capital of the world, a paradise of craft and all told, one of the most fascinating destinations for the traveler.
The Classic India series portrays the panorama of India's cultural heritage. For centuries India was perceived as the land of fabulous riches, of wisdom, of mystique and romance. It is this magic that the series captures. It provides a window to one of the world's most ancient civilizations - anachronistic at times but most often vibrant and alive today.
