Photographer's Note

Here you can see the silhouette of the Umaid Bhawan palace in the distance in the early morning, and the jagged fortification walls of Jodhpur in the centre of the image.

Building began on the palace in 1929, and was built for Maharaja Umaid Singh. It contains 365 rooms and took over 3000 workers 15 years to complete. Umaid Singh died in 1947, four years after the palace was completed. The current Maharaja Gaj Singh II still lives in part of the building and the rest has been converted into a hotel and museum
