Skywatch Friday-morning/ view from the Sun temple, Jaipur

Sun temple or Surya Mandir in Jaipur is situated on eastern hill range, which in a way has restricted the city from expanding in the East direction. The temple is located at a strategic point; a  starting point of the major east-west road of Jaipur’s  walled city. This road in the ancient time  was one of the most important roads of the city. Its importance can be judged by its width, an important parameter of it’s time. Today things have changed !!

View of Jaipur city! Sun temple,Jaipur/ Surya Mandir

This picture was clicked from the Sun Temple,Jaipur overlooking the  city during this week. One can see  clouds hovering over the city, in the background. Even though its a peak monsoon season, the city is still awaiting for second round of rains! By the way, the perimeter wall in the lower part of the picture is painted with typical pink color. It’s the same shade that Jaipur city is associated with!
