I am quite amazed that in spite of countless trips to Jaipur (remember I have studied near Jaipur for 5 years) I never managed to see the City Palace before. Of all the monuments I saw this time, I liked the City Palace most. Here too restoration work was going on like Amber Fort but even then I was quite amazed with the stunning beauty of the place.
The Peacock Door, City Palace, Jaipur, Rajasthan
I found the peacock door at the city palace quite amazing due to its striking colors, so much so that I requested a gentleman to move out of the frame of my camera. The gentleman that he was, he obliged without giving me any dirty glances.
I have always felt this on my treks and I felt it at Jaipur monuments too that in our day to day living we hardly see any open spaces! And till I see it, I really do not realize what I am missing.
