Jaipur September 7th
September 15, 2018
Next destination, Jaipur! The capital of Rajasthan and nick named “Pink city”. A city packed with things to see so instead of the usual visit on foot my friend and I decided to hire a tuk tuk driver for the day. Great decision in hindsight.
To get to Jaipur I take my first Indian train at 6:00 a.m…. Starting to be a habit to get up at unhealthy hours 🙂
Delhi Train Station
Happy I booked my ticket before hand. Seems like the waiting list is long…
Rush before departure.
Superb service! Much needed caffeine boost.
Really tasty croquettes
Jantar Mantar Observatory
Mini sundials for each astrological sign. Guess which sign I belong to 🙂
A component of the sundial.
Soldiers taking refuge from the beating sun.
Hawa Mahal Palace
Wow! So many windows. Apparently it was to allow be able to people gaze without being noticed.
Superb craftsmanship to make such beautiful doors.
Jal Mahal Floating Palace
Random girl posing for another cameraman.
One way to escape the scorching sun 🙂
Amber Palace and Jaigarth Fort
Right place at the right time with a camera. Kodak moment.
No the security guard was not posing for me 🙂
Getting closer to the desert.
Beautiful fort but ended up not going as it was seriously far from where we were. Leaving something for next time I come.
Reminds me of M. C. Escher’s work.
Care for a dip?
Gaitor Ki Chhatriyan Royal Crematory
One of my favorite temples so far. Incredibly beautiful, calm and hardly anybody in it!
City gates to the pink city.
I spy with my little eye…. a camel!
My Tuk tuk driver and friend Sunny. His moto was “I’m Sunny funny!” Great company and did a fantastic job showing us around.
