Jaipur, In­dia

This stun­ning gate is one of four exquisitely- de­signed en­trances that adorn the third court­yard of the 18th- cen­tury City Palace, one of the many dec­o­ra­tive and colour­ful build­ings that make Jaipur such a mem­o­rable des­ti­na­tion. Each palace door cel­e­brates a sea­son and this one is the Le­heriya (waves) gate, representing spring. The palace is made up of a num­ber of court­yards and gar­dens, and while parts of it are a mu­seum open to the pub­lic, it also con­tin­ues to be the residence of the ma­hara­jahs of Jaipur. They’re in when the flag is fly­ing. roy­al­
