The camps were all outside Delhi, the Government and the Indian Princes’ ones. Each prince was given a large piece of land, where the city provided the tents to shelter all the attendants from that state. Each one brought everything thay thought they might need during their stay.
They where grouped by their respectives zones. Rajputana, Central India, Hyderabad, Kashmir, Punjab, United Provinces.
Many visitors walked around the camps during the Durbar days. Most painters and illustrators took their time to sketch and take notes at the camps. Also the accounts and chronicals were mostly during the hours between events. The Main Procession and the Retainers Review didn't give much time to anyone to take notes since there were too many things happening during a relatively short period of time.
