12 Photographs that will take you back to the Old Jaipur


When you see the Jaipur city today, it is all modernized and developed. You get to see well-built roads, classy flyovers, multi-storey buildings, furnished apartments, malls and booming infrastructure. Fancy bikes, luxury cars and other motor vehicles run on the roads with some occasional camel or elephant passing by in the city area. But this wasn’t the scene some hundred years ago.
