kaleidoscope ceilings

The forts and havelis of Rajasthan. The opulence, decadence, the exquisitely carved furniture, the rich decadent tapestry, each room is all so overwhelming, but hold your breath and look up... And that will blow your mind. The Patwa nu haveli in Jaisalmer and the Mehrangarh fort in Jodhpur, are stunning examples of the ingenuity and the level of detailing of craftsmanship that produced some stunning ceiling art at the time.
