I'm feeling really washed out today but force myself to take a trip out to the Amber Fort some 16 km away.

The Maharajah's garden, apparently it used to be planted with saffron.

The walls and ceilings in the King's bedroom are inlaid with convex pieces of (Dutch) mirror. It creates some amazing light effects...........and multiple images of his favorite wife.

On the way home I pass this..............

.............and this, in the back streets of Jaipur.
