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.
A cute little child waved at me from distance and then decided to ignore me when I held up my camera. A goat climbed up to a high point in the background.

Jaipur is larger city with a beautiful lake as the city center. Castles and defensive walls were raised on top of the mountains surrounding the lake and the city.
I LOVE the color the food this man is selling.
