I have been dreaming of visiting India for a few years now, so I am very glad that I finally got the chance to visit this amazing country and bring to life new projects with some really amazing fashion brands. My goal was to see the real India, meet local people, experience culture, try traditional food, walk the street markets, and learn as much as I could about the history which covers thousands of years.
During my eight days in the country, I visited three major cities in the northern part: Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur. My journey started in Delhi from where I travelled south to the Taj Mahal in Agra and then further west to the desert of Rajasthan and the Pink City of Jaipur. Due to the triangular shape on the map, this route is referred to as the “Golden Triangle”. Let me tell you that in only eight days, I have seen and experienced more than I could have ever imagined. With a total number of 4500 pictures, it took me a few days to sort out the best ones, order them into groups, and outline everything I learned, felt, and experienced during my adventure. I will post a few reports during the next weeks and hope to give you an all-around view of everything.
Let’s begin with Nahargarh Fort in Jaipur which was built in 1734. Nahargarh Fort is located on top of a hill overlooking the Pink City of Jaipur in the Indian state of Rajasthan. Together with Amber Fort and Jaigarh Fort, Nahargarh Fort is the first and highest of three forts that were built to defend the city. When I arrived at the fort in the afternoon, there were almost no other people because temperatures reached a brutal level of 50°C. I walked to the furthermost point of the fort with a breathtaking view of Jaipur from above.
