About Jaipurthrumylens


Hi! I’m a blogger from Jaipur and Jaipurthrumylens is a blog on Jaipur.

I’m sure you must have heard about Jaipur, a city in Rajasthan, India; popular the world over as “The Pink City”.

Why Jaipurthrumylens?

Over the course of years, I had the opportunity to visit many other cities across the country. Having traveled around, I realized that Jaipur is unique vis–à–vis all other cities.

Jaipur encompasses a rich & unique culture that is hard to find in other cities. It has a very distinct flavor & feel, which draws regular visitors again and again! Every festival is celebrated with zest & fervor. The rich monumental legacy is certainly one of its kind with a long list including Amer Fort, Jal Mahal, Hawa Mahal to name a few!

There is so much to Jaipur that any combination of 26 alphabets will not be able to cover it all……Internet and guidebooks, Jaipur travel blogs are replete with information on Jaipur, most of which is quite a cliche.

Jaipurthrumylens is a blog on Jaipur. I have tried to bring forth the essence of this city in my own style. Everything on ” Jaipur thru my lens” revolves around the pictures, scenes, and stories from Jaipur.

    1. I can only agree with you on this. 🙂
      I often wonder why people like Rajasthan? May be because of people? culture? heritage and legacy?… it’s hard to decide. May be it’s a combination of all. But the fact is that Rajasthan has very strong “flavor” and it tends to says for too long! 🙂 what do you think?

      1. I agree. In fact not only Rajasthan , but our whole country is huge and magnificent and one needs a life time to cover all of it. I will trouble you when we finalize the trip, though. Right now its too hot to even step out of the house 🙂

  3. Great to connect with your blog. I visited Jaipur with my 67 year old mother in the 1980s. I suppose we only saw the tourist places but she went on an elephant ride for the first time in her life. It’s wonderful to see the place through your eyes and fascinating photos.

    1. Jaipur is one of the top rated tourist destination in India. The Amer elephant ride is immensely popular. Even though animal lobby is fighting to stop elephant ride, it’s a difficult choice.
      Jaipur has undergone dramatic change in last 30 years -grown manifold! Come and experience it again!

      1. Rajasthan has a story telling tradition called Kavad, it has very beautiful traditional way of drawing pictures and these pictures are kept in particular patterns I use these in both my story telling workshops and theater workshops.
