Lake Palaces

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Palaces on a lake. Palaces on the lake sure. Small windy streets among ancient houses. The James Bond classic Octopussy was filmed here, so there must be something special about the town.

We started enjoying the pace we have set in Bundi. We are now taking our dear old time sightseeing. Nothing is rushed, and we deem it perfectly OK to spend an entire day n the hotel. Of course we did manage to see the sights around town, including some temples and the palace. We also took a daytrip to the elaborate and jawdropping Jain temple of Ranakpur. Along the way we dropped in on the huge fortification of Kumbalgargh, which boasts the second longest wall n the world, after the great wall of China. Unfortunately, it was not in our budget to stay at the lake palace where James Bond enjoyed his martinis shaken, not stirred.
