A Pink City with Sundials: Jaipur, India

Jaipur, India
Jaipur, India
Jaipur is a must on any itinerary to Rajasthan.  Like pretty much everywhere we've been in India, this city is bursting with colors to photograph.  Jaipur is called the "pink city" due to the majority of the buildings being painted a pinkish color.  Beat up wall. Jaipur, India
Our first stop was the city palace in the center of town.  This complex takes up several square kilometers full of beautiful arched doorways and beautiful carved details.  Woman in Pink against a blue wall. Jaipur, India

Next to the palace was a unique observatory to visit called the Jantar Mantar.  This observatory is a garden type set up filled with various devices built out of concrete and stone dating back to the 1700s.Door way in City Palace. Jaipur, India

Including one of the largest sundials standing at 90 feet tall.  We loved the architectural feeling of these structures, making for great black and white images. Small sundial with city palace in the background. Jaipur, India

    Hey Meggan and Beau! I just caught up on your travels, and now that I’m back in the states, I’m even more jealous than I was while we were in China. It’s also great to see your photos from a few places that we have actually been, and I swear we saw some of the same men in Varanasi.
    Enjoy December in India!!!
