We did make our way to Jaipur, but not without a final trip back to Bhangarh, before heading back home
When it comes to Indian SUVs the bolero can easily lay claim to being top-gun. Seen here; standing shoulder to shoulder with a canon defending the Nahargarh fort in Jaipur.
Jaipur Nahargarh evening: Just as twilight sets in, our Bolero takes a final halt at Nahargarh fort and gets a bird’s eye view of the beautiful pink city, Jaipur.
As sun sets on the horizon, the Jaipur Jal Mahal twinkles in the middle of the Man Sagar lake. Exquisite traditional wooden boats crafted by Vrindavan boat-makers gently float around the palace to make for a perfect sight to end a long driving day.
Hard to imagine that this Fort between Alwar and Jaipur was once a flourishing town. But you also marvel at the architectural planning and genius of that era. Local legend says it is a haunted place, and was cursed by an occult sorcerer who foretold the residents of this place would die an unnatural death and their spirits will haunt the fort for centuries to come. Architectural Society of India (ASI) officials say that it’s only for the fear animal that they don’t allow anyone into the fort after sunset.
