This is a guest post by my very good friend Bhakti Motta. She is an amazing photographer and had recently captured a lot of places in Rajasthan. In this post, we bring to you some of her lovely captures!

When one visits Rajasthan, its not just the colour-coded cities that astonish people but the simplicity of people residing there and the use of colours in their day to day life that’s what compel them to visit Rajasthan again and again.

Rajasthan is not only rich in culture and architecture but also in hospitality.

Palace of winds or Hawa Mahal located in the heart of Jaipur was constructed by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh in 1799. It is one of the major tourist attractions in Jaipur.

Just opposite Hawa Mahal, these cafes are good place to grab a cup of coffee and click wonderful photos of monument.

One can easily find such beautiful turbans in any market around Rajasthan. This pic is from a street of Jaipur.
