Jaipur in Rajasthan has an interesting heritage with fine palaces and forts many of which contain magnificent decoration. The Amber fort is the ancient capital and all around the Aravalli Hills can be seen the crenulated walls of the old city. As there were celebrations during our visit the women were dressed in bright colours as were the camels and elephants.
It is quite an experience to find the sacred cow walking along a busy main road with bikes, lorries and cars gently moving around it. Elephants and camels are also freqent sights ambling along at their own pace.
