While In Jaipur : The Pink City (Part V - Inside Nahargarh Fort)


Some twenty feet inside the ancient Nahargarh Fort.

A hundred feet inside the fort. This tree probably has a rich folklore surrounding it.

Derelict pool - Where the Queens & Princesses used to bathe once. It is made out of a single stone.

You can see the final mountains of the Aravalli Range on top of this picture.
