Jaipur – Jantar Mantar
I know its been a while since my last post but I have been busy with work and music but I also have to confess that I have been a bit a lazy too…
This trip to Jaipur happened in July 2012 soon after my return to Bangalore from Mauritius. I had so many images from Mauritius, it took ages to get done. The Jaipur trip was almost the same.
On the first day we went to the Jantar Mantar which is an Astronomy Museum and within its compounds you will find fourteen major geometric devices for measuring time, predicting eclipses, tracking stars’ location as the earth orbits around the sun. I thought it would be interesting to capture some of these devices and also some of the architecture.
It was a sunny day with great skies, but the sun was burning down on us and it was hot. It was around 38-39ºC.
My brother was also shooting and managed to get some great shots. He will be posting them here soon. He managed to snap some pics of me too…
At the end of our visit to the site, we noticed a bunch of squirrels looking around for food. To our surprise, they weren’t afraid of us. One of these buggers actually went through my backpack looking for some Doritos!
This in turn attracted some birds..
We went back to our hotel exhausted, but were looking forward to our trip to Amber Fort the next day.
