After the hotel in Agra, to which Ahmed brought me, did not deserve any praise either, measured by the price, I went in search of it myself for the two nights in Jaipur. I was lucky and found a small guesthouse with an upscale standard in a quiet area. It was good to be allowed to escape the always noisy and lively Indian hustle and bustle and road traffic a little bit and so I enjoyed it very much to be relaxed in the moonlight on the terrace just there and let the thoughts drift.
Now arrived in Rajasthan, this was the beginning of encounters with much time-honored architectural beauty of the former princely kingdom. Besides the city palace and well-known landmarks, many a nook and cranny of the old city was exciting and remarkable and the camera was hardly left in the bag.
It took some effort to reach the Amber Fort and further still the fortress of Jagarh on foot, but I did not want to support the animal cruelty with the elephants. The winding palace with countless photo opportunities and the breathtaking view of the landscape further up, compensated for all drops of sweat, which flowed inexorably at 30 degrees and sunshine.
