Now at Jaipur and loving the PINK CITY. Its absolutely beautiful. loved every minute of our tour today morning and it was so nice to see all the forts and learn about Jaipur royals.


Akbar's tomb on the way to Agra. His daughter and wives are also buried there.Its at sikandra.


Moi Infront of the tomb........


 Above you can see a part of Agra fort and its really majestic!



A view Of Taj Mahal from the fort.......


 The Pic above is also a part of agra fort and the roof is adorned with gold!!!


 Can you see a bunch of squirrels munching ....and this beautiful sight was found in the premises of taj mahal

 On our way to Taj Mahal. Its 6 in the morn and I think am still part asleep(lol) and took this pic when we were riding the cycle rickshaw. The cars are not allowed beyond a point and one has to either hire a cycle or horse rickshaw or battery operated car!
Isn't TAJ MAHAL BREATH TAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL???????? AT 6:30 IN THE MORN...


TAJ MAHAL........





Anyone recognise the place above????? DO DIL MIL RAHE HAIN......the beautiful Pardes movie song and the  movie was picturised in part here. What you are seeing above is Fatehpur Sikri.....


This is the place where Salim chisti rests. Akbar made this fatehpur sikri fort for his guru...as he had 3 wives(one hindu,one christian and one muslim) but he had no children. Its being said that guru blessed him and then Jehangir was born and hence the other name "SALIM" for Jehangir as he was born b'coz of the guru's blessings.......

INCREDIBLE INDIA!!! Can you see people travelling on top of the bus??? It was such a wonderful thing to see.....
Infront of a gate in city palace, jaipur.....

The fort where Jaipur royals resides even now. A part of it got converted as museum and the remaining palace is still the home of Rajah Bhawani Singh Ji who is the present rajah of Jaipur.....


Me sporting a paschmina shawl bought from Jaipur...by the way its sooo light and beautiful. loveeeee it.



A candid pose with hubby. When you are travelling alone the only common pose that will include both of us...lol
