Skywatch- Sunrise/ Ramgarh

I’m sharing picture clicked at Ramgarh, near Jaipur earlier this week.

Sunrise at Ramgarh, near Jaipur

Sitting in such a majestic location, and soaking up on a beautiful sunrise with a  great weather….what else can one ask for?

 

Ramgarh was once a very popular picnic spot of Jaipur until few years back when the Ramgarh lake dried up. This lake hosted a boat competition during 1982 Asiad games.The major reason for lake to dry up is 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 location 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 its located merely 30 km away from the Jaipur city. It has few villages strewn around and luckily, the pace of life is “easy”!!

    1. Alok! I thought of mentioning here, but I didn’t for some reason (which I don’t know) that there are many Ramgarh in India. I guess I should specifically mention that its not the same Ramgarh of movie “sholay” !!! 🙂

    1. Thanks Parul! Even the surroundings of the place where this picture is clicked, can easily pass off as film location due to topography! I have reserved those picture for another post! 🙂

    1. Alexander! Capturing these shots entail, getting up quite early- much before the sunrise and be at location, where I plan to capture these shots. In this case, I had drive time of 45 minutes and another 20-25 minutes of hike through the hill, before sunrise!! But the reward often makes up for the extra effort.
