After leaving Pushkar, our journey took us through Fatehpur to Jaipur.
Fatehpur is a small town known for a grand mosque in the center. In the middle of the square of this mosque is the Salim Chishti Tomb, a beautiful marble edifice.

Jama Masjid, one of the largest mosques in India. It is a perfect place for architecture appreciation and people watching.
