Castle Mandawa

Just a quick pic to make you drool. Have spent the most wonderful night at Castle Mandawa Hotel, a converted Marahaja’s fort built in 1755. The staff dress as Rajput guards and one fellow in particular cast a spell on me and agreed to let me photograph him: just one of the faces of Rajasthan.
