The History of Jaipur

Into the Modern Era

Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II (r. 1922-1949) came to the throne as a minor. After his education and military training in the UK, he set about reforming the Jaipur State Forces. This proved timely, given their participation in World War II, serving in North Africa.

In the post-war period, the Maharaja oversaw the transition from monarchy to democracy and the integration of Jaipur into the new state of Rajasthan as a part of the independent Indian union. Today, Jaipur continues to flourish as a centre of arts and crafts and as a celebrated tourist destination.
