I’m sharing pictures clicked at Ramgarh, near Jaipur earlier this week.
Sitting in such a majestic location, and soaking up on a beautiful sunrise with great weather….what else can one ask for?
Ramgarh was once a very popular picnic spot of Jaipur until a few years back when the Ramgarh lake dried up. This lake hosted a boat competition during 1982 Asiad games. The major reason for the lake to dry up is the blocking of water channels that brought water to the lake, due to illegal & unauthorized construction.
During the pre-independence years, it was one of the favorite hunting locations of the Jaipur Maharajahs. The royal hunting lodge is still present. It has been converted into a hotel & is run by the Taj group by name of Ramgarh Lodge.
Ramgarh still has a rustic feel, though it’s located merely 30 km away from the Jaipur city. It has few villages strewn around and luckily, the pace of life is “easy”!!
