Mehrangarh fort,Jodhpur,Rajasthan Mehrangarh Fort (Hindi: मेहरानगढ़ का दुर्ग), located in [Jodhpur], Rajasthan, is one of the largest forts in India.

Another postcard-perfect view of Mehrangarh Fort!

Lake Pichola in Udaipur is an artificial freshwater lake with bathing ghats, temples, hills and palaces surrounding it – a spot to visit at dusk and after!

Overlooking Lake Pichola, the City Palace is nothing less than captivating. It’s the conglomeration of several palaces, and a blend of Medieval, European and Chinese architecture with cenotaphs, arches, turrets and domes.

The Jal Mahal, which translates to ‘Water Palace’, sits in the middle of Man Sagar Lake and is a lovely synthesis of Rajput and Mughal architecture. The beautiful backdrop provided by the Nahargarh hills adds to the charm.

Architecture aficionados will instantly fall in love with the Taragarh Fort in Bundi, owing to its stepwell reservoirs, ornate palaces and forts, and tunnels that pass through the Nagpahari Hill on which it stands.

Also known as the ‘Hall of Private Audience’, the majestic Diwan-E-Khas of City Palace, Jaipur is enveloped in gold and red hues and features exquisite Persian, Rajasthani and Mughal paintings, along with ancient texts.

Set on the Aravali Range, the Amer Fort in Jaipur is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, boasting a fusion of marvellous Indo-Islamic architecture – it’s a feast for the eyes!

Ganesh Pol is the entryway to the royal quarters of Amer Fort. The intricate sandstone and marble work steals the show!

Also known as the ‘Palace of Winds’, the Hawa Mahal in Jaipur is an architectural marvel with pink-painted honeycombed-styled windows that will leave you spellbound.

At about 590 feet (179.8 metres) high, the beautifully ornate Chittorgarh Fort is wrapped in tales of bravery and sacrifice. The striking features are its Rajput architecture and the 22 water bodies within the fort.

The grand Junagarh Fort in Bikaner is a blend of Rajput, Mughal and Gujarati architectural styles, complete with frescos and lacquer and mirror work.

With gold and red filigree design, lattice windows, wooden ceilings inlaid with mirrors and walls adorned with gold leaf paintings, the Anup Mahal in Junagarh Fort is a remarkable testament to historical and architectural beauty.

Commissioned by the Bikaner’s richest merchants, the majestic Rampuria Haveli is the mystical blend of beauty, splendour, joy and antiquity – no wonder it’s called the ‘Pride of Bikaner’.

Below is a picture of the yellowish-golden streets of Jaisalmer, also known as the ‘Golden City of India’, owing to its yellow sandstone architecture and yellow sand.

Here is the Instagram-worthy Umaid Bhawan Palace – a glaring structure. Walking into it will make you feel like a royal!

Sunset at Pushkar lake – its calm and peaceful setting will allow you to lose yourself for the rest of the night!

The atmospheric and lively festival of Teej not only marks the start of monsoon but is also observed by Hindu women for marital bliss. There are colourful parades on the streets, Rajasthani cultural performances and a lot of traditional feasts.

Catch a glimpse of Rajasthani culture through the ‘Puppet Show’.

I am fortunate enough to have seen a fair number of musicals around the world and to have witnessed (or been a part of) grand productions in cities like London, Singapore, Moscow, Kiev, Kuala Lumpur and, of course, cities across India. But this miniature one, in the form of a puppet show (locally called 'Kathputli naach'), in the City Palace of Jaipur, was one of the most enticing ones till date. The humble setup, the colourful characters and the easy to understand plot would, any day, match a Shakespearean tragedy with a hyped Bollywood twist! I'm slowly falling in love with Rajasthan, the colourful, desert state of India. #itswanderful #thewanderfulmusician . . . . . . . #jaipur #rajasthan #india #rajasthandiaries #igers #wander #wanderlust #music #musical #theatre #travel #travelgram #travelphotography #picoftheday #natgeotravel #lonelyplanet #travelblogger #instagram #instagood #incredibleindia
