@Cuckoo - People still dress very traditionally in Rajasthan.
No - despite my lieneage and connections in Rajasthan...no one would do that for me...lol....!

@Kalyan - Thanks , yeah and food was yum...I am always sceptical about such hideouts. But this was truly amazing place in middle of nowhere....its actually my Mom who suggested this place...she and my dad were invited by the King ( almost 3-4 decades back)at that time for Lunch.
We paid for our lunch :-)- we are not that influential -lol

Incredible place!
Have you ever read Antonio Tabucchi's "Indian Nocturne"? This palace could have been one of the places his protagonist happens upon on his search through India.

Nice photos. I love stained glass windows!
You could improve the second photo by using flash (since there is strong light coming from the back of those two guys)!

Hey Merisi - no not yet( will try to get hold of copy though)- however that might be unlikely as these places they do highlight these things...like there is another "Dhanni" - small settlement where William Dalrymple ( historian writer) wrote his books.
Hey Sigma - Thx , where have you been....hope to see some post from your end...missing your reviews.
