Kund ke Balaji, Toonga, Rajasthan | Stepwell Photos
A photo of the Painted Kund ke Balaji stepwell at Toonga, a small town near Jaipur.
I love the colours of this stepwell with its geometric form. It had recently been repainted - a photo from two years earlier shows it with streaky dark blue walls and unpainted steps.
Long strings of marigolds hang from the overhanging trees.
A very loud man alternated between shouting on his phone and trying to get us to attend a wedding ceremony the following day in Jaipur. Very kind but I suspected we'd be there as the novelty act, an Englishman and a young female guide from Ladakh.
Square format - but email us if you'd prefer the portrait format.
