Jaipur is called the pink city, but the truth is that this city is a thriving kaleidoscope of a gazillion colors. A living land beaming with monuments, history, forts, culture, infrastructure & some unexplored exotic locales, Jaipur renders a tale that engulfs every drop of beauty that has ever existed in human history. One such tale is narrated through this series of rare photographs where the German automobile and a paragon of class – Volkswagen, meets the city of royals and an epitome of culture, heritage and pure beauty – Jaipur.
- A geeky date with Jaipur – Albert Hall Museum
The white Volkswagen Beetle standing in front of the oldest museum of Rajasthan which is also the state museum Albert hall. The inside beauty of this museum is supplemented by the stunning view outside with a kit of pigeons always seen alight or flying around it.
2. Under the sunset sky beside Mansagar lake
Mansagar lake – An artificial lake housing the famous Jalmahal Palace in the middle of it, constructed by damming the Dharbawati river, is a natural habitat for more than 150 species of local and migratory birds. Volkswagen Vento against the serene backdrop.
3. Rendezvous with the nostalgic picnic spot – Ramgarh
Approximately 30 km away from Jaipur city, with the way cocooned by verdant trees on both sides, there lies Ramgarh dam. A place which once had a sprawling artificial lake and would attract tourists like bees to honey, is now dry but has managed to resume its freshness by the landscape, greenery and the famous Ramgarh lodge which people rush to especially during monsoon and winters. Volkswagen Beetle and the great Banyan tree.
4. Parked beside a Bird’s paradise – Chandlai lake
Still less explored and a poet’s dream during rains, Chandlai lake boasts of having 8000 winter migratory birds especially flamingos in the month of February. This surreal sight draws bird and nature lovers from all around the city and tourists as well. Volkswagen GTI in front of Chandlai Lake.
5. The one at the abode of tigers – Nahargarh Fort
The place where you might have seen the crazy ‘Paathshala’ dancing in Rang De Basanti and a romantic spot in Shuddh Desi Romance, Nahargarh stays the best hangout place for residents of Jaipur especially in the evenings.
7. The epitome of development – World Trade Park
A fantastically developed building with top notch shopping brands, food outlets, kiosks and what not, World Trade park is the best place to visit and to look at when you crave to see the metropolitan side of pink city 🙂
8. Revisiting the shining history – Amer Fort
A capital of the state before Jaipur, the fort is a shining gem of the city especially in evenings during the Light & Sound show. When this Volkswagen Ameo was parked against this architectural marvel, this unforgettable sight was created.
A sincere thanks to Volkswagen and our beautiful, colorful city for letting us have this rare series of photographs to share with you 🙂
