It wasn't too interesting apart from the bit talking about royal clothing. Here they used to just wear one piece of fabric wrapped around their waist including the women. Considering how conservative India is it was funny to see photos of rows of topless royal women! Afterwards we made it to Jew town and had a look around ...
