For a long time, I was under the impression that the Pink City moniker arose from the use of a kind of pale red iron oxide tinted sandstone as common construction material in the city of Jaipur. Turns out I was wrong.

It’s not often you’re wrong Ayush.
It does look pink in this shot. I like the lamp standard.
