The obligatory elephant ride at the Amber Fort in Jaipur. Seemed like a hoaky tourist idea at first, but was actually quite fun. Picture taken by local photographer, who had them printed and for sale inside the fort within the 12 minutes it took to ride the elephant up the rampart.
An elephant and his keeper in Jaipur. We saw him washing the animal in the street and stopped to take a picture. Until I gave him fifty rupees, the only view of the elephant I could get was the tail end. The young man (and the elephant) knew the game very well.
The main temple in Ranakpur. A still active Jain temple complex between Jodhpur and Udaipur.
