This is another collection of photographs from my Jaipur trip. This is all about doors and windows.
Yes, doors and windows that’s what fascinated me while roaming around the town. This post is all about it.
The ornately decorated door of the Jaipur City Palace.
The window looking towards the main courtyard.
The mesmerizing peacock adorning one of the doors; representing monsoon. There were other doors presenting other seasons too, but monsoon is the one which catches everyone’s attention.
Different floors, different window styles from the interiors of Hawa Mahal.
The inside looks like this for one of these windows.
Another one of the intricately carved window from the Hawa Mahal.
The impressive gate of the Jaigarh Fort with a monkey acting as a doorkeeper.
A window to guard the fort and not merely to peer down.
A window to the world……from the Jaigarh Fort.
Windows fit for a Queen!!
What lies behind these closed doors?
A work of art or a simply a window?
One for the view and other for the breez.
These one are eye catching for their co-ordination.
The detailing on one of the windows.
The giant sized Suraj Pol (Sun Gate) with massive but beautifully decorated doors.
Jaipur is famous for its shopping scene – offering everyone a bargain or more as per their taste and budget. Very rarely tourists don’t venture into Jaipur’s maze of various bazaars; it’s such a major attraction.
So, here are few photographs taken of these famed market streets by me while (of course) shopping for one thing or another.
Very interesting streetlamps in the older part of the city. They can be linked directly with Jaipur’s royal lineage.
The colourfully decorated pink gate that opens to various markets in the Old City.
The similarly styled signboards of the shops.
The shops on either side decked in pink hues.
A heritage building getting repaired, housing mainly shoes shops.
The famous Tripola gate opening into a busy intersection of three bazaar streets.
A decorative terrace of one of the buildings.
A Minaret soaring high and forming backdrop of one of the many market streets.
The busy market scene as can be seen from the Hawa Mahal.
The road leading to the modern shopping malls located on and around M.I. Road.
