Jaipur architecture and street photography

Back side of the Hawa Mahal in Jaipur

Jaipur is the capital of Rajasthan and has always caught my attention due to its name being “Pink city”. I visited Jaipur last year in November for the purpose of doing architecture photography in the forts and palaces and street photography in the pink city. I was amazed by the beauty of the ancient forts and palaces and the rich culture and heritage of the place. I have compiled few of the photos that I have taken below –

Jaipur architecture photography

Jaipur has many forts and palaces, each of which has amazing architecture. I could not visit all of them due to time constraints, however I visited a few important ones like Hawa Mahal, Nahargarh fort, Jaigarh fort and Amer fort.

Jaipur street photography

Jaipur is a big metropolitan city and has a interesting blend of old and new. The old city of Jaipur is called the ‘pink city’, as you will find a lot of pink colored buildings there, although they are dire straits. If you are interested in street photography, it is best to walk around the old part of the city or can also take a guided walking tour held by many local tour operators.
