Amazing 450 year old family haveli. Only 3 rooms in the haveli which is located within the old fort area. A very unique and special place to stay. Fabulous view from adjoining haveli.

We got to the station with about 10 minutes to spare. I put my bag on my back and Gem decided ...
... and he feeds it. He showed us the cobra hole, this has been there forever there is also a carving of the cobra. Pity we didn't get to see it.

Onwards to Bara Bagh, not sure what we are looking for but off we go. Following the directions surprise surprise we get there first go. We find a group ...
