World’s oldest camera in Jaipur – Tikam Chand & 1860 Vintage Camera

Camera is truly a gift of science to the mankind. It not only captures moments but narrates stories and makes life full of happiness. One such camera which is full of stories is found in Jaipur. On my recent visit to Jaipur, I met a man who has kept two generation old heritage alive; he owns world’s oldest camera in Jaipur. It was truly a wonderful experience to see the oldest camera in Jaipur. I spoke with Tikam Chand who currently owns this vintage camera and he narrated so many interesting stories about it.

Rani Sisodia Garden Jaipur – The Royal Garden of Jaipur

Jaipur is a place where every nook and corner is adorned with architecturally and aesthetically beautiful ancient monuments and buildings. This was my second visit to Jaipur. The first proper visit which I made to Jaipur was back in December 2017 and then I visited few places. This time, I listed few more famous places of Jaipur and chalked out the plan to visit them. Though I left my home to visit Mandawa which that much far from my hometown, but when I reached the bus stand of my hometown, I boarded a bus direct to Jaipur. I knew there were few places (Rani Sisodia Garden Jaipur, Galta Ji Temple Jaipur etc.) which I had left out in my previous visit. The first day was very confused and had no idea what to do in Jaipur. So the first thing I did was to go and visit Patrika Gate. However, t...

Galtaji Temple Jaipur – A trek to the Abode of the Monkeys

Recently I made another unplanned trip to Jaipur. I left home for Delhi but at bus stand of my hometown, I boarded in the bus to Jaipur and reached there with nothing much in mind. I love solo traveling and it gives me liberty to make ways whenever I feel like visiting any place, just pack bags and leave, oh yes money is important factor as well. So, after reaching the pink city, I checked the places which I couldn’t visit in my last journey to Jaipur. And on the top was the famous Galtaji Temple Jaipur, also known as the monkey temple. I have watched a lot of documentaries on this temple on National Geographic Channel back in childhood. I still remember they used to refer Galta gang. And the monkeys here are very friendly. So, I stayed at my relative’s place and chalked out a random place...

Dhosi Hill – An Extinct Volcano & A Forgotten Treasure

Do you know India has volcanoes and not one, a total of seven volcanoes? Well, there are volcanoes in India and two are in Haryana. The irony is that the tourism department of Haryana is poor. Such sites are often neglected in Haryana. Be it the hilltop fort of Madhogarh or the fort of Mahendergarh, all the historic places are just dying a slow death. No restoration work is done for them. And one such place is situated near my hometown. Dhosi Hill, that’s the name of the place I am talking about. A place which is an extinct volcano and is million years old. And I didn’t even know about it. I got to know this just when I did some homework the day before I planned to visit there. Now, this is an irony on my part as well and also on the government too that it doesn’t do anything in respect of...
