In a brief Jaipur is an exceptional example of indigenous city planning and construction in Asia. It is the best example of a remarkable amalgamation between the traditional structure and a deliberately new planned city located on the plains and open for trade and commerce. The site located within the valley that lay to the south of the Amber hills was comparatively flat and undeveloped to other parts of the city. Jaipur is also adequately protected, nestled within hills having an array of forts and defense posts. Jaipur is an expression of the living traditions, astronomical skills, unique urban form and exemplary innovative city planning of an 18th century city in India. The city also provides a supportive environment to invite trade and commerce.
