Welcoming the Photography Wonders of The World During Festival on Wanderlust!

For anyone visiting Jaipur, it is customary for him to keep the camera shutters happy with ample photography opportunities in the Pink City. Be its magnificent forts, mesmeric lakes, gorgeous palaces, compelling historic structures, fascinating markets, colorful vistas, there are plenty subjects that do not let your camera leave its charm to capture frames.

But for the very first time, Jaipur will play host to an international open-air travel photography festival- Travel Photo Jaipur. This is the inaugural edition of the festival, which is to be an annual event-taking place in Jaipur each February.
