Albert Hall Museum, Jaipur

The Albert Hall Museum in Jaipur is the oldest museum in the state of Rajasthan. Located picturesquely in a garden just outside the walls of the old city, it is impossible to miss or ignore.





The building was originally intended to be the town hall, but it was later decided to house the museum. We were unable to enjoy the museum from inside thanks to lack of time, but it looked so beautiful that we were unable to resist stopping to click some pics!



And the multitudes of pigeons ensured that we got some amazing ones!!





And thats my entry for Sky Watch today! For more beautiful skies from around the world go to Sky Watch Friday

  10. The architecture is really soothing. Beautiful shots. We were also there but could not get inside as that was closed that day. The area is pretty clean and princely.
