Some Memorable Pictures From My Road Trip Chandigarh To Mumbai

Making a road trip through any city or state is the best way to see the countryside. I have had numerous such occasions to drive through most of the cities in India. Recently, I made a road trip from Chandigarh to Mumbai which was very exciting. It was the first time that I made such a long trip that stretched between so many states.

The drive was an exhilarating experience for me. More so because I got to pass the state of Rajasthan, which has always fascinated me. I had been longing to see this colorful state of our country that is now in the limelight thanks to IPL. The route that I followed was as follows:
Chandigarh - Delhi - Jaipur - Udaipur - Ahmadabad - Mumbai

The sights that I got to see on the way were really awesome and something that I would never forget. Here are some pictures that I took on the way to show the beauty of our countryside. The pictures have been taken by my Nokia N95 phone that I bought recently. See how clear the photos are.

1. This was a very beautiful Palace in the Pink City Jaipur, called Amber Fort Palace which is very huge and sprawled across many acres of land.

Jal Mahal is Jaipur's lake palace. It is surrounded with water and was right across the place where we spent the night. The view was spectacular.

3. Hawa Mahal Jaipur City

Hawa Mahal is the main attraction of the Pink City. It is a huge wall made up of these hundreds of small windows with ledges and is just one sided. It was constructed by the king so that the women could stand in these windows and observe any processions that passed through the main road without having to expose themselves, as was the custom in those days.

4. Rajasthan Folk Dance

I liked this cute small boy the best, who was greeting each and every guest to this road side restaurant by dancing to the tunes of Rajasthani folk music which was very entertaining.
