Elephant traffic as we left Udaipur...





Indian Flying Foxes...





Some fine multi-tasking: gently cropping a buffalo; leading an ox; carrying her shopping and all whilst walking with a large bowl and a jug balanced on her head...





Ranakpur

Approaching the huge Jain temple dedicated to Adinatha...





A guard walks by, others had very old fashioned looking rifles...





I had shorts on, so I had to cover my legs with some rather natty 'Hammertime' trousers that the temple kindly provided...





Ornate entrance...





One of the 80 stunning, domed ceilings...





Another lower ceiling and just some of the 1444 columns...





Each of the columns is carved with a different pattern...





A floor to ceiling shot...





Miche with another elephant...





Each of the important Jain Gods has their own shrine, but we weren't allowed to photograph the main shrine itself...





Dome & column...





I've no idea who she is, but I liked the vivid red colour amongst the pale marble pillars...





Jains approaching the central shrine from the main entrance...





Dome close-up...

















Jodhpur

View from the room at dusk of the Umaid Bhawan Palace...
