Morning scenes from Jaipur/ WPC-Morning

(Posted in response to the Weekly Photo Challenge – Morning)

I have tons of pictures captured during morning in Jaipur. Many of these have already appeared in my earlier posts. It’s difficult to decide which pictures should I post in response to the Weekly Photo Challenge -Morning.

Let me put together few of these. Some new and some old!

 

Here is a picture of a girl on way to the school, captured in front of the famous Jagat Shiromani temple in Amer town, near Jaipur.

While the above picture was captured in the old and ancient part of Jaipur city -Amer here is a picture from the new settlements. The below picture was shot at the elevated road which runs below the metro line. It’s unusual to find such low volume of traffic  on this busy road except in the morning. Bonus: There’s a “ghost rider” on the right side of frame!!

This elevated road was launched few years ago and it links the city to the national highway leading to the Mumbai; It’s called Jaipur-Ajmer expressway.

You’ll have to excuse me for posting slightly blurred picture of the flower sellers. While capturing this image on a busy walkway a pedestrian pushed me causing a blurred capture; I did not realize it until I saw it on the computer screen! With low light in early morning hours, it does get tricky in such situations! The flower sellers are busy setting up their shop for the day; morning are quite busy for them as there’s lot of work to be done.

Flower sellers have been selling flowers at this place for many years and it’s a well-marked site for buying flowers. There are many temples around and usually devotees stop by to buy the flowers on way to the temple. Of all the flowers being sold here, Marigold is most prominent one.

Elephant ride  at Amer palace is very popular among the tourists. In the above picture, elephant is on way to the Amer palace elephant stand. The elephant rides in Amer start around 8 AM  but you see elephants arriving at the Amer elephant stand by 7.30 AM.

Central Park in Jaipur is very popular among the morning walkers and runners alike with its 4.5 Km jogging track. Apart from runners and walkers, you can spot many people performing exercise, stretching,  pranayam and yoga. You can find few sitting on  the bench;  catching up & chatting with their friends. Each to his own!

Here are few pictures capturing the morning scene from the posts which have already appeared in the past.

    1. Thank You for appreciating and commenting. There have been many discsussions regarding putting an end to elephant rides. unfortunately if these rides were to end, there will be no way to feed them; elephant owners will have no means to support elephant. I don’t know what would be right thing to do. I personally liked the picture of girl going to school as well. thanks once again for commenting. 🙂

    1. If you haven’t been to Jaipur in last few years, you’ll find lot of changes for city is growing by leaps and bound. today the city spans 25 km North to south and likewise in other direction. The walled city area is still the same except the ongoing metro project. BTW when did you last visit?

    1. Sandhya… Jaipur has a unique blend of modern with traditional world. I can’t claim to do justice with things around…there’s much more than these few pictures! 🙂

      1. Of course there’s lot more to explore if you like offbeat….and shopping! I would like to share with you that I meet so many bloggers who love Jaipur. Probably, some of you will have to tell me what aspect you like about Jaipur. For a person like me who resides here, I have a different perspective than a visitor or tourist.
