Like much of the economy worldwide, tourism is suffering but there were always lots of families visiting historic sites.
In the fort at Bikaner there was a splendid deHavilland plane given to the Maharajah of Bikaner from a grateful British Empire in recognition of raising a regiment to fight in the First World War. The Maharajah was one of those who signed the Treaty of Versailles in 1919.
There are lots of portraits too including this curious one.
I got the photos in the wrong order. Here the lovely warm sandstone of the courtyard of the fort with complicated stone carved window screens.
Elephant details abound.
A bedroom fit for a princess with mirrored walls.
And a bedroom whose ceiling is decorated with clouds - balm in an almost desert climate. The mirror silvering lends a mysterious air.
