In 1727, with Mughal power on the wane, Jai Singh decided the time was ripe to move down from his somewhat cramped hillside fortress at nearby Amber to the new site. He laid out the city, with its surrounding walls and six rectangular blocks, according to principals of town planning set down in the Shilpa-Shastra, an ancient Hindu treatise on architecture.
