Ranthambore Palace, Jaipur

The last person directly associated with the ancient order of monarchs and kings of India was the wife of the last mogul. The palace (pictured below) is still very much operative, and the royal lady herself is reputed to still be living within its confines - although she is now well into her 90's, and the palace itself has since been turned into a luxury hotel for tourists, diplomats, and other well-to-do's. Ted and I decided that it wouldn't be a bad idea to visit the palace on one of our last nights in Jaipur.
Below is a photo of an ornate fountain that we found in the middle of the palace's front foyer/courtyard area.
We though it wouldn't be a bad idea to take some photos in front of the fountain. Pictured in the background is the palace itself.

Here we are (below) inside the palace's main restaurant. It was, by far, the most luxurious place we briefed during our stay in India. That is not to say, however, that it was the best place we went to or stayed at, mind you (for, I think Ted and I would both agree that - with all due respect - it definitely was not) . . . but it was the most . . . again, luxurious - if not expensive - place (comparitively speaking, of course).
Prayer . . .
