This is the fort at Amer — the older part of the Jaipur city.

From the top of the fort, you can see this beautiful garden.

Here is the details of one of the museums — which, among other things also houses a couple of daggers of damascene steel — but photography was prohibited inside the museum😦

The Hewa-Mahal — which is just a wall, I understand.

Of course, in the Jantar Mantar, it was nice to see a stereographic projection being called Yantra-Raj — King of instruments/symbols:
