Looking at the number of photo stories I’ve done from the city of Bikaner, it seems that we did more touristy things in Bikaner than we did in Jaisalmer. Very different vibes in both cities and very strongly related to the vibes of the properties we were staying at. It is hard to make sure that everything you do reflects…

Merchants’ Trail, Rampuria Havelis, Bikaner #NAINAxNarendraBhawan

We did a LOT of things in Bikaner. Narendra Singh Bhawan had arranged for a bunch of trails across the city. We’d already visited Bikaji Ki Tekri, seen the Sadul Singh Museum, had lunch at the Laxmi Niwas Palace and now we were on the “Merchants’ Trail”. This trail is around the very famous Rampuria Havelis of Bikaner that are…

Lunch at Laxmi Niwas #NAINAxNarendraBhawan

After visiting Bikaji Ki Tekri and the Sadul Singh Museum, the Narendra Bhawan team had planned lunch for us at the Laxmi Niwas Palace. There’s some insanely beautiful and intricate carvings in walnut wood on the ceiling of the entrance / porch. There was more of course. Rooms that aren’t usually shown to the public, were opened for us. And…

Sadul Singh Museum #NAINAxNarendraBhawan

After we’d visited Bikaji Ki Tekri, the next stop on the itinerary was Sadul Singh Museum, right next to the Laxmi Niwas Palace, where lunch had been arranged for us by Narendra Bhawan. There were wide, winding roads that led to plush lawns and stunning architecture and then there was the museum. It’s been maintained really well, full of the…

Above, Narendra Bhawan looking lovely with the blue sky, clouds and a riot of Bougainvillea flowers. On our second day in Bikaner, the hotel had planned a bunch of experiences for us, starting with a visit to Bikaji Ki Tekri. As with a lot of Indian Heritage sites, this one clearly fell into disrepair some time ago and a patch-up…

Bye Suryagarh! Hello Narendra Bhawan! #EyesForRajasthan #NAINAxNarendraBhawan

( All images are clickable for viewing in larger sizes. ) As much as Suryagarh was the epitome of luxury and luxurious experiences, Narendra Bhawan in Bikaner was the epitome of art deco, kitsch and just a whole load of fun! While Suryagarh was far away from Jaisalmer city, Narendra Bhawan is conveniently located within Bikaner. You’re driving down some…

Dinner on The Dunes #NAINAxSuryagarh

( As always, all images are clickable if you’d like to view larger versions – especially the panorama ones and the ones with the stars. ) Our second day at Suryagarh started with a late brunch. After the incessant eating the previous day, we wanted to start a bit later after Bharat and I had run through a #CoverUp shoot…

Welcome to Suryagarh ( #EyesForRajasthan Day 03 ) #NAINAxSuryagarh

What do you do when you visit a place that’s supposed to be a hotel but feels like home? ( And not just because you’re working on a gig with them. ) I don’t know about you but I did not want to leave Suryagarh. A few years ago, an agency had contacted me on behalf of the property, asking…

#CoverUp 96 #NAINAxRayBan #NAINAxPureGhee at Suryagarh, Jaisalmer #EyesForRajasthan

Sometimes, the colours just work. Jaisalmer is known as the “Golden City” because of the yellow stone and the color of the sand dunes. The wonderful “hotel” we were being hosted at, uses the “golden” to its advantage. Named, “Suryagarh”, it means “The Home of The Sun” or “The Sun’s HomeTown”, they used yellow colored stone from the desert to…

#EyesForRajasthan Day 02 : Jaipur to Jodhpur

We could have driven straight from Delhi to Jaisalmer but the Jaipur and Jodhpur pit-stops were made to meet friends. My parents’ friends. As I’ve already mentioned previously, I love being able to accompany them for this. It does get extended and tiring, but I know that a few years down the line, I’m going to come back to these…

Traveling to Jaipur : #CoverUp 95 #EyesForRajasthan #EyesForDestinations

What does one do when there’s a chance for work-trip to Rambagh Palace to soak in the beautiful work of Trunks Company? One signs up of course! We reached Jaipur city by about 12 noon and by 5 pm, after a wonderfully pleasant rain shower, there I was. ( There are photographs from their store too if you scroll down…
