Photographer's Note

A picture of one of the many palaces in the complex of the City Palace, which is located in the heart of Jaipur. I'm not sure which particular palace this one is but it may be the Badal Mahal.

The following information about City Palace is courtesy of webindia (http://www.webindia123.com/monuments/palaces/jaipurcity.htm)

“Located in the capital of Rajasthan, the City Palace of Jaipur or the main palace is an imposing blend of traditional Rajasthan and Mughal architecture. The vast palace complex occupies one seventh of the walled city of Jaipur. Originally built by Maharaja Jai Singh II of the Kachhwaha clan of Rajputs, additions have been made to the palace complex by many of his successors.

The complex is divided into a series of courtyards, sprawling gardens and buildings. It is home to several palatial structures like the Chandra Mahal, Mubarak Mahal, Badal Mahal, Shri Govind Dev Temple and the City Palace Museum.”
