Maharaja’s with moustaches – Bikaner

Soon enough we were in Bikaner, another important stop on the caravan trade routes until India and Pakistan became seperate during independence in 1947 and left this area behind. Our newest guide had great pride of his hometown, declaring it more beautiful and ornate than anything we had seen before. The Bikaner fort, another royal…

The pink city – Jaipur

We left dusty Ranthambhore for the pink city, Jaipur. Here it is the Maharajas of the Rajput clan, not the Mughuls, that have ruled since the 9th century.

A room with a view – The Taj Mahal

We had an early morning start to flee the capital by train. All our journeys had been in relative comfort so being dropped at the train station, albeit with a guide, was our first real experience of hustle. We passed through the security scanners not one at a time, but in a mass jumble, whilst…
