A complex of courtyards, gardens and buildings, the impressive City Palace is right in the centre of the Old City. The outer wall was built by Jai Singh II, but within it the palace has been enlarged and adapted over the centuries. There are palace buildings from different eras, some dating from the early 20th century. It is a striking blend of Rajasthani and Mughal architecture.

"There is in all things a pattern that is part of our universe. It has symmetry, elegance, and grace - these qualities you find always in that the true artist captures. You can find it in the turning of the seasons, the way sand trails along a ridge, in the branch clusters of the creosote bush of the pattern of its leaves. We try to copy these patterns in our lives and in our society, seeking the rhythms, the dances, the forms that comfort. Yet, it is possible to see peril in the finding of ultimate perfection. It is clear that the ultimate pattern contains its own fixity. In such perfection, all things move towards death."
-Frank Herbert

The true path of life leads through the narrow valley of grandeur.
-Kristian Goldmund Aumann

Dream delivers us to dream, and there is no end to illusion. Life is like a train of moods like a string of beads, and, as we pass through them, they prove to be many-colored lenses which paint the world their own hue. . . .
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

“There is no exquisite beauty… without some strangeness in the proportion.” ― Edgar Allan Poe

Possibly the most serene sight amidst the chaos of Jaipur is the beautiful Jal Mahal Jaipur, the Water Palace. This low-rise symmetrical palace, that once was a shooting lodge for the Maharajah, appears to float in the centre of Sagar Lake. The light sand coloured stone walls of the Jal Mahal Jaipur are at a stark contrast to the deep blue of the waters of the lake.

To other countries, I may go as a tourist, but to India, I come as a pilgrim. -Martin Luther King, Jr.

"My candle burns at both ends;
It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends—
It gives a lovely light!" -Edna St. Vincent Millay

Mughal-E-Azam, my first theatre experience.
I feel I'm spoilt for life in terms of what to expect from all future plays. The sheer scale of the entire play blows one away. I'd like to give a special mention to Anarkali aka Priyanka. Her rendition of Pyaar Kiya toh darna kya is goosebumps inspiring.
