Dec. 3 Our Last Day in Jaipur and the End of Our Adventure

Touring the City Palace of Jaipur (Rajasthan) was to behold one beautiful thing after another.  The ornate marble patterns, the carvings, inlays and even giant silver urns meant to carry water from the Ganges for the Maharaja’s travels, were all spectacular.  One again, the colors shone for me.Jaipur, Entrance to the City PalaceJaipur City Palace #1Jaipur City Palace #2Jaipur City Palace #3Jaipur City Palace #4Jaipur City Palace Silver UrnA memorable and suitable finish to our stay in Jaipur and our tour of India was the “Gaitore” Crematorium, a mausoleum for the Maharajas. It was quiet there. Peaceful.  Gaitore Royal Crematorium #1Gaitore Crematorium #2Gaitore Crematorium #3Gaitore Crematorium #4And for my daughter Tamara, who did not want to walk through yet another beautiful sight, there was a lady doing henna in a hut by the crematorium.  So we were both quite satisfied.
