Peacock Designs on a Jewellery Shop
A Royal Look!

I was walking in search for a late lunch on the MI (Mirza Ismail) Road in Jaipur in October when I noticed this rich design on a structure. I was wondering what it could be.

It was a Jewels Emporium!

When I looked at it a little more closely I realized it was a jewellery shop! When i clicked the pictures the security guard outside gave  me a few nasty looks but nothing to seriously deter me!

No I didn’t enter the shop, though I am sure if I did there would have been many more photo opportunities. There is some thing about Jaipur and Jewel Shops, MI Road is full of them and Jaipur is full of them.

  1. Fantastic! What a lovely design. I would like to see inside the shop too… I’m afraid I’m getting too lazy to post anything, or rather am too busy rushing around but at least I can check out yours from time to time.

  2. Thanks Anu, the shop indeed was eye catching.

    Thanks Ramesh, I do not know what else to call them! 😀

    Fida no idea 🙁

    Qaminante good to see you here once again but do post something, just a picture.

  3. That first picture is really cool. What is the resolution? It would be great blown up, to make into large photo murals or poster size. It would make a much better poster than I have seen for sale at most places.
