Photo Feature – City Palace Jaipur from an Offbeat Lens


In the heart of the pink city, enclosed with crowded markets and ancient temples, stands a sprawling pink hued palace that speaks tales of a bygone era with its regal architecture – the City Palace, Jaipur. The palace was established by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II and the construction spread between 1729 and 1732 AD.

The 300-year-old palace was the kingdom rulers’ seat of reign till 1949. Many magnificent royal architectural constructions adorn the palace like, Chandra Mahal, Mubarak Mahal, Sabha Niwas and the Clock Tower among others.

For Vageesha Mishra, strolling past the aesthetically stunning arches, intricately engraved pillars and doorways felt nothing short of a walk down the memory lane that was filled with an illustrious history.
