Rajasthan is a fun and frolic state and so is its clothing. The traditional outfit usually comprises a colourful Bandhej or Lehariya dupatta for the women and a vibrant Bandhani turban for the men. Jaipur, being the capital of Rajasthan, is also the fashion capital of the state.

The passion of horse riders was tested in the 7-day event which had a travel distance of over 200kms on horses. The Marwadi Horses were chosen for being hot-blooded and fierce which made them ideal for the exemplary difficult ride.

The participants loved meeting the locals of Shekhawati and claimed it to be the best Gallops they have attended, the chief participants were former Miss France Camille Cerf and the 93-year-old Phillipe Perrier of France.

The event was a huge success and the horses proved their mettle in the ride. Each day, a huge 40kms were covered with a meagre 30mins lunch break. While the extraordinary ride was difficult for the riders, it was much more difficult for the horses.

The over 200 km ride began from Mandawa and covered Alsisar, Mahendar, Bika Ki Dhani and Fatehpur and concluded at Mandawa.

Things No One Tells You About – Albert Hall Museum, Jaipur

Jaipur ! The name itself has a feeling attached to it. The vibrant colours, the rich culture, the famous monuments, and what not. The city is filled with anything and everything. Since Jaipur has a history attached to it and with history we always get reminded of our very favourite Albert Hall Museum. So today, we’re here to give you some quick facts about Albert Hall, that recently completed 133 years of its existence.

albert-dreamy

–          Did you know that Albert Hall’s fate was decided after laying down its foundation stone in 1876? Yes ! When the Prince of Wales, Albert Edward visited Jaipur back in 1876 it was supposed to act as a Government Building as Madho Singh I had planned. But it had something else in its destiny. Finally after a decade, Albert Hall was built and declared to be used as the State Museum that you see standing tall near Ram Niwas Garden.

albert-hall

–          The style that you see and admire every day and night while passing through the beauteous Albert Hall, is Indo- Saracenic form of architecture that has now become a source of reference for varied classical Indian styles of design.

albert-hall-night.jpg

albert-blue-sky

–          While you take a look at the corridors of the Museum, you will be surprised to see that they are decorated with murals that portray Chinese, European, Egyptian, Greek and Babylonian civilizations. If you want to get the essence of the rich architectural heritage, this is the place to be at!

albert hall_1

–          There are not many that knows about this, but Albert Hall Museum in the past year’s Durga Pooja was replicated at Jharpada Pandal in Odisha ! Bewildered to hear this, but it is true.

–          One of the greatest authors since time immemorial, Rudyard Kipling after seeing the magnetizing beauty of Albert Hall Museum said, “It is now a rebuke to all other museums in India from Calcutta downwards”.

We’re sure once you visit this splendor, you will be spellbound with the kit of pigeons flying around and the sight of horse cart standing right in front of the Museum that forms a perfect frame for your next Instagram post.
