Udaipur is a photographers delight. No matter how many times one has seen the city, or clicked the photographs or even seen the photographers, every new click is still refreshing. One of our readers, Aditya Singh, has contributed his share of some exquisite photographs of the city. So, sit back and enjoy:
Image #1- The official flag & emblem/logo of the ‘Maharana Pratap Smarak Samiti’, seen at the Moti Magri (Pearl Hill) complex. It is an object of great significance & importance & yet it goes unnoticed by the visitors. Such an important object deserves to be documented & shared with as many people as possible.
