Public toilets are available in Jaipur, but their privacy is... none.
We saw everything, even people defecating in the walkways. In those hard conditions who cares about privacy and cleanliness?

By a small shrine alongside the elephant ramp on the way up to Amber Palace, we saw this sadhu, or holy man crouching. The white lines on his forehead mark him as a desciple of Shiva.
This man had set up his stall selling various beautifully coloured spices, lentils, rice and other exotic wares in Jaleb Chauk - the courtyard within Amber Palace.

We visited a carpet workshop where we were shown every stage of the process of making beautiful Rajastan carpets.
Here you can see the early stage of spinning the wool.
