Jaipur’s Heritage

Chandelier,yellow,lovely,mesmerizing

Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if only one remembers to turn on the light…

This picture is my personal favorite. Anyone can easily associate it to a ring. But it’s not a ring, it’s a little tricky to find out what is it but after visualizing carefully you can figure out that it is a chandelier. It looks so royal and exquisite. The beauty of this picture is in the appearance of light. Whatever I say for this picture will be less as this photo is a lot in itself and it says everything in its first display.

Bapu Bazaar,colorful,famous,pink city

Colors are brighter when the mind is open… 

This picture is of one of the famous bazaars of Jaipur. You can see a variety of colors. All these handicraft which you can see are Jaipur’s specialty. As I already mentioned earlier Jaipur being ‘pink city’ so there is a majority of red color. This photo is special as you are compelled to imagine life to be colorful. One thing I want to say when our mind is free from tension and anxiety only then we can enjoy colors and they appear more appealing. Seeing bright colors refreshes our mind.

Jantar Mantar,yellow,time,sunlight

Time is what we want most, but what we utilize worst…

This observatory is one of the oldest monuments in Jaipur. The yellow color is amazing. The sunlight patches behind are shining brightly and are just looking wow. The world’s largest sundial is located here. But I never understood instead of knowing what time is, why we don’t give time the value it deserves. We always are running to get more and more time but never utilized the time already available, properly. I want to add one thing we have plenty of everything even time too but its upto us how we organize it and make its best use.

Albert Hall Window,Design,amazing,black and white,light,dark

Every moment of light and dark is a miracle…

What a beautiful architecture. This is a photograph of Jaipur’s famous museum. Light has played a very vital role in making this picture so amazing. The center of focus is at light and its behavior. The best part about this picture is its creation like this. Also there’s a little bit of reflection on both sides at the bottom giving a special touch. What makes this picture so amazing is the design looking so different and lovely.

City Palace

Forever is a long time, but people wouldn’t mind spending it by their loved ones side…

This is famous palace of Jaipur. The gate shown here is one of the four gates located in Pritam Niwas Chowk. The two people sitting was the best moment to get this picture clicked. Every time I see this picture in mind all the elements come together depicting a peacock. In life love is very necessary as without love nothing else exists. The birth of a child is also because the mother loves the child and wants to bring him to this world. And where there is love so it doesn’t matter how much time you are together, what matters is you want to be together.

Rajasthani Pagadhis,colorful,Jaipur,heritage,black and white

Life is not black and white…

Ahh these colorful Rajasthani pagadhis are so amazing. Rajasthan had been the land of kings. Jaipur, the capital had been the residing place of kings and they ruled over it. These three colors were often used in their empire. And as Jaipur known as ‘pink city’ for its construction in red sandstone, you will see dominance of red color in every royal article. These colors in the pagadhi also give a royal feel. In life we are bound by darkness but it’s not the end, we have to find colors in the darkness to complete our life just as this picture.

Hawa Mahal

To dream by night is to escape your life. To dream by day is to make it happen…

This picture of is looking absolutely stunning. The use of red and pink sandstone in this structure has linked it identity to Jaipur – the Pink city. The architecture of the ‘Palace of winds’ is very special as you can see combination of small and big windows looking wonderful and also the detailing of every part of it is praiseworthy. When you are inside the mahal you can also see variety of colorful glass pattern which adds on to the beauty of the palace.

Swarg Suli,Light,Eggs,Lovely,Window

If egg is broken by outside force, life ends.
If broken by inside force, life begins.
Great things always begin from inside…

Its a snapshot of one of Jaipur’s famous building ‘Swarga Suli’. There are variations between lightness and darkness in this picture but the presentation of these both makes the picture look appealing. According to me whenever we see something related to light and dark, many things start coming to our minds which we never thought before. All elements together provide us inspiration as the quote states. Also this pic brings heritage feel with itself and makes it rich with it.

Camel,Jal Mahal,Heritage,Rajasthan,vivid,beautiful pic

Life is like a camel – you can make it do anything except back up…

Camel – known as ship of the desert is looking fabulous here. Camels are linked to Rajasthan from historic times and they have become an identity to it now. The way it has been dressed up points toward the Rajasthan’s culture. The colors have a very rich impact on the overall picture. If we talk about the quote, it proves very true in the journey of life as you cannot have backup for itself but only you can plan some alternatives to handle the situation you are facing.

Hawa Mahal,Window,exquisite,heritage

Happiness is something that comes into our lives through doors we don’t even remember opening…

The door which you are seeing is of a small window at Hawa Mahal. The contrast of light in the front and back of the door is very delightful. By seeing this picture anyone would like to stand at the door’s opening and take a look outside and enjoy it. The texture of the walls is enhancing the heritage feel of the picture. I am in favor of the quote as we try very hard to get all things which we think would make us happy but happiness come from enjoying every bit of life.
