Jaipur Rajasthan is named after its founder, the warrior and astronomer sovereign, Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II. The decision to move out of his hilltop capital Amber was also compelled by reasons of growing population and paucity of water. Moreover in the early 17th century the power of the great Mughals was dwindling under its aging Monarch Aurangzeb. After several centuries of invasions the North was now quiet and the wealth of the kingdom had increased considerably. Seizing upon this opportune time, Jai Singh planned his new capital in the plains.
