  1. Lovely pictures, Ajay – as ever ! Two questions: (1) what are those beautiful enormous flat things of marble like table-tops ? (2) will you please send me those two jewelled pots for my next birthday ? [grin]

    • Thanks M-R,your guess is right that flat marble things are table tops.If you want to buy any item then you can purchase them online,these are easily available and best wishes for your birthday in advance.When is your birthday?

      • My GOD !!! Imagine what the freight must cost- probably more than the beautiful marble !!!!
        One would need to live in a really swish place to have a table-top like that. [drool …]

  2. Thanks for the tour of this magnificent place. Great shots. Carver, ABC Wed. Team

  3. beautiful AND colorful.
    ROG, ABCW

  4. Those twin pots are my kind of thing. They’re gorgeous!
    I would ask about the price and quality of the carpets as compared with Turkish ones but you will be a little biased (understandably :) )

    • Thanks jo,Turkish carpets are very famous for design and quality but Indian carpets are also best you can’t be compare both because both have different specialty. Indian carpets are available in many range,cost totally depends on quality and size,generally you can get a good carpets in 5000 INR. Cost vary with design ,size and quality.
