Tourists capturing sunrise at Jal Mahal, the Water Palace/ Skywatch Friday

With November almost over, Jaipur is experiencing a transition in the weather system. Winter is almost here with a slight chill in the air during the late evening and morning. The Sun still continues to shine; however its strong and harsh during the day. The Jal Mahal or the Water Palace, as it’s popularly called by the foreign tourists, gets shrouded with the fog during the early morning.

Jalmahal shrouded in the fog. Skywatch Friday!

October to March is a peak  tourist season in Jaipur as well as the rest of the Rajasthan. Even though there are many tourists here in Jaipur, they are finding it tough due to the recent demonetization of 500 and 1000 Rupee notes in India. Till 2 days ago, they could only exchange Rs 2000 per person. This limit was doubled recently. I feel sorry every time I see  foreign tourists standing in a long queue outside banks waiting for their turn to exchange the defunct Rs 500 and 1000 notes with valid currency notes. It is a waste of time and energy of the tourists  in what could have been usefully spent exploring the tourist attractions. Quite like getting caught in a crossfire, with no fault of their own. I’m sure with a  better plan & efforts some arrangements could have been made to cut this pain!

The following picture captures foreign tourists who were out to capture the beauty of Jal Mahal during the sunrise. I did come across some more tourists too. Everyone was waiting for the Sunrise. And it did…..
