Rajasthan : the land of forts and palaces is quite famous in tourist circuit (especially foreigners). Though the popular destinations are Jaipur, Ajmer, Udaipur, Jaisalmer and Jodhpur there are few more small cities all across Rajasthan which boast of some exquisite architecture. Also apart from Palaces and forts one can see some of the best step wells (Baoli) of India in this region.
Fortunately i had the chance to visit one of the lesser known cities in Rajasthan (Kota) few weeks back. I used this opportunity to visit Boondi (an erstwhile kingdom of Rajput kings). Boondi is famous of its wall paintings, City palace, Taragarh Fort and Rani Ji ki Baoli (in pic). Raniji-ki-Baoli, (Queen's step well) is a 46-m-deep step well, built in 1699 by Queen Nathavatji, and is known for its carvings as you can see in the pic.
