On July 6, 2019, UNESCO listed Jaipur among its World Heritage Sites. Jaipur had also taken up a pathbreaking step in terms of woman empowerment. An NGO in this city, known as ‘Access Development’ had launched an initiative called  ‘Pink City Rickshaw Company’, under which it provided e-rickshaws to underprivileged women. These women now drive the e-rickshaws, earn money and run their families. This proves that the city isn’t just stunning from outside. The people out here are wonderful too! Also, the Jaipur Literature Festival is one of the most popular literary festivals in India. Literature buffs book their stays at many budget hostels in Jaipur solely to attend the festival.
