Jaisalmer Fort – In Pictures (Part II)

On the left – A royal balcony of the palace (notice the intricacies in the design) On the right – A doorway inside the fort

This is the second part of my photo series on Jaisalmer Fort. If you are thinking why am I so obsessed with Jaisalmer Fort. Well, go check it out for yourselves!

For now, enjoy the pictures.

Check out the first part of the photo series here.

On the left - A reserved painter at his shop. He refused to get photographed, but agreed after a little cajolery. On the right - An interesting book store that invites an avid reader.
Now look at that shop! Isn’t it gorgeous?
Beautiful paintings on display at one of the shops
On the left – A vendor of musical instruments at the fort. On the right – A beautifully dressed puppet hung on a wall.
An antique wall – isn’t it enough to be charmed?
Traditional jewellery shop in the alley
Look at the rustic charm that oozes out of the alleys of the fort.
I had never seen something like this before – Rajasthan tourism magazines displayed on the wall.
On the left – A patchwork fabric on display. On the right – A lane of people's homes and a cow loitering. 

Rajasthan celebrates its colors and age-old culture in every nook and corner. No wonder the tourism here is sky-soaring.

  4. I simply would like to do a shopping there and get soaked in the sunny Jaisalmer! Seriously when I went to Rajasthan, all I had was an Analog camera and very limited pictures that simply wouldn't do any justice :( All these streets and little shops are looking great.
