Tuesday means it’s time to present you all with some of my best photos from a featured location, and today that location is India’s amazing Jaipur, the capital (I think…) of the Rajasthan State with a fine collection of Mughal buildings and architecture, a lake, the Amber Fort not too far from the city limits and views aplenty. I enjoyed Jaipur a lot more on my second visit (2018) than my first (1999) and that’s mainly because I was pretty intimidated by bigger Indian cities back on my first trip. Highlights include the astronomical observatory Jantar Mantar, with concrete structures built to measure the night sky in one of the most unique places in the city. The Royal Gaitor is on the outskirts, and you can see that there is a wall around the tops of the hills surrounding Jaipur from there to protect the region in days gone past. The ‘Albert Hall’ is a museum, and the name refers to the colonial history of India I guess. Then there’s the City Palace, the gates and so much more is this really cool city. I was especially happy at how clear the skies were when I was there. One big positive seemed to be that there is less pollution today than I remember in 1999. Enjoy!
