Incredible Northern India Tour

On to Jaipur today….Abhaneri Chand Baori Step Wells, on to our hotel to rest before heading out to High Tea at Rambagh Palace and dinner this evening in an Indian family home. The step wells are incredible, you just cannot imagine the size of this place and what it must have been like to live during this time. Let it be known that this step well is also the deepest in the world, constructed in the 9th century and as deep as a 13 story building. They were used to gather water to be used when there was no rain. Just outside the wells a touch of village life with children, cattle and fruit and veg stands. Off again and arrival at our hotel to check in and freshen up for our tea at the Rambagh Palace…roses petals greeted us as we arrived and from there to the outside lawns to enjoy our choice of tea. Afterwards we enjoyed a special treat of a visit to the Presidential Suite…how posh. My most favourite was the fabric for the drapes surrounding the four poster bed…exquisite and so like the beautiful peacock that is the national bird.
