Wall decorations in Bikaner

This is a picture of an entrance in Bikaner.
So colorful but badly maintained !
Every door in India is telling a legend.

Bikaner - Gainer

The old royal hunting lodge - western Bikaner was the venue of Marahadja Singh
The lake is dominating the place.
Waterbuffels can cool off in this hot
area of India.
This place is still visited by hunters
but most of this area has been converted into hotels.

Bikaner - Gainer

Local customs at the lake -
Religion is a seperate booklet to open (yes or no ) and discuss (yes or no) - but this picture will show you the richness of the Marahadjas (Pagode) and the man in the front !

    I will never forget my adventures in Nepal.....I just wish I had more time to venture off to India. Your photos of the Puppeteers are quite striking!! So what ever became of the "legendary" last Marahadja? ;-)
