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. Iโ€™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 ย 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. ๐Ÿ˜€ 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 . . .
