through the nine rectangular sectors subdividing it.
The palaces and forts of the yesteryears, which were
witnesses to the royal processions and splendours
are now living monuments enroute visiting Fatehpur

water supply failed. Arrive Jaipur in late evening
& transfer to hotel. Night stay in Jaipur.

is encrusted with delicate screens and carved balconies
from which the royal ladies, confined to their quarters,
could sneak views of the outside world. Past, present
and future merge at Jai Singh's observatory, where
time has been accurately measured since the 17th century.
