Sunday Post: Reflection

Jake has a beautiful shimmering reflection here created for his Sunday challenge. Maybe you would like to join in or just visit? I have chosen a photo that I took in the City Palace, Jaipur, Rajasthan. I’m the pink reflection in my salwar kameez!

The story goes that Maharaja Sawai Madho Singh II had two of these beautiful giant urns made to take on a voyage to England. He filled them with water from the sacred Ganges because it would be against his religion to drink English water. They could each contain 4000 litres, I hope it was enough to last him! This was in 1901 and they are still the largest  sterling silver vessels according to the Guinness book of world records.

  1. Perfect entry for this theme. And I can’t imagine carrying 2 of those things with me on a trip. But then I’m pretty particular about my water too, so maybe …. Depending on where I was going.

  2. 😀 Clever, Gilly. Very very clever.
    Er? Good thing their boat are strong enough and big enough not to sink. That urn is HUGE

I would love to hear from you . . .
