The capital of the State of Rajasthan in North Western region of India, Jaipur is among the first planned cities in modern Asia and is known to have a temple at every 100 meters.  Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh wanted to build a city remembered for its design.

He was born in the capital of the Kachwahas and became a young ruler at the age of 11 after the demise of his father Maharaja Bishan Singh in 1699. 

India Golden Triangle Tour
Led by Pandit Vidyadhar the scholars took up the construction of the city and divided it into 9 blocks. Wide roads cross each other at exact right angles. The main streets were 100 meters wide while the rest are 30 meters. Jaipur is also surrounded by an 18 ft wall, which has 7 gates in all. There was a specific reason to keep seven gates keeping in mind that the general public lived in only 7 blocks, and the remaining 2 were reserved for the Administration and the Palace.
