Jaipur is especially famous for the strangeness of its monuments, whether it is the surreal silhouette the Jantar Mantar, the astronomical observatory of Jai Singh II, or the rococo facade of the HawaMahal, crossed by the winds. But, outside the walls of the palace, few visitors take the time to pace the shopping galleries of the bazaars. No one ventures into the courts or pushes the curiosity until entering the houses and talking with the inhabitants. In this book, contrary, authors approach dive into the heart of the city and its architecture in what she has most daily. If this book proposes a historical, urban, architectural and symbolic of the old center of Jaipur, it is not exclusively centered on the monuments of the city. The exploration of the districts has given us many discoveries and of happy surprises. This direct knowledge of the urban fabric has brought us, in passing, rediscover a number of accepted ideas about the layout and architecture of this large city.
