Life is all about experiences. But there are some exceptions too. In a hindsight, you would rather not experience certain things because it turns out to be another way around. If you have followed my blog you would have read a couple of post on sunrises and sunsets in Jaipur. Being a skywatcher and nature lover, I feel every sunset and sunrise is unique. In one of my blog on the most popular sunrise points in Jaipur, I have mentioned that even though Nahargarh Sunrise point is extremely popular, I prefer giving it a miss.
Let me share my experience of watching a sunrise at Nahargarh Fort. It was one of a crisp Sunday morning of February when I started from Kanak Ghati at 5.30 AM. Despite being dark there were a couple of morning walkers on this road which ends at Nahargarh Fort. Vehicular traffic was quite low but I knew in a half hour this road will be buzzing with speeding cars and motorcycles, all heading towards Nahargarh Fort. By the time I reached the sunrise point, it was 5.50 AM. Sharing the sky and the view of the city in this picture.
I found young lads sitting here waiting for the sunrise with loud music playing through the portable speaker.
In a couple of minutes, a large crowd congregated at the sunrise point. Howling, shouting, loud music playing from the car is all that I experienced in this time-frame. This is a picture I shot of Nahargarh Fort sunrise point at 6.00 AM and decided to return back.
I’m sure everyone has their own idea of watching & enjoying a sunrise but certainly, this is not mine.
For me, sunrise is a spiritual experience. And this alone is a motivation for me to get up so early on weekends. I have been lucky enough to find new and amazing sunrise points in Jaipur which guarantees quietude.
I’m sharing a couple of sunrise pictures from various locations in and around Jaipur. In my opinion, Nahargarh Fort is not the best sunrise point in Jaipur; It certainly is the most popular one.
A couple of them are a great place for doing yoga because of tranquility and stunning views. On the contrary, Nahargarh Fort guarantees a prolific sunrise experience. Life is about making choices and I’m sure why I’m not heading for Nahargarh Fort sunrise.
