1. Naila-A village tucked away in time/ walkthrough
My visit to Naila village was a hiking trip, but with a very steep gradient and a surface full of gravel, it was more than hiking. We were quite lucky that we didn’t meet any fall or slip.

4. Travel Photo Jaipur /Travel postcards exhibition /Pt II
Travel Postcard Exhibition under the Travel Photo Jaipur was probably one of the best exhibitions I attended in 2016. This exhibition provided me an opportunity to visit Rajasthan School of Arts which is a 150-year-old building but it’s been shut for the last many years. Akshay Mahajan, the presenter & conveyor did a fabulous work right from selection of the site for exhibition to organizing and promotion of Travel Photo Jaipur exhibition despite tight budgets and being a single army.

5. Pol / Gates in Jaipur
Pol or City Gates of Jaipur also called Jaipur Gates are one of the distinguishing features of the walled city area of Jaipur. It’s not that these gates are exclusive to Jaipur but they have a grandeur and commanding presence which is hard to find in other cities. Apart from this, one can find different versions of Pols throughout the walled city of Jaipur. Subsequent to this post, I also wrote the following post: Old city Gates of Jaipur. This post has details on all major gates of the walled city area of Jaipur. Read – Pol / Gates in Jaipur
