I own this wonderful photo. I bought it some time ago and I can say that the detail in person is absolutely amazing. It's such a privilege to get to see one of this photographs in person. I enjoy it very very much.

This photo was quoted as Jaipur's, but the list doesn't mention any rath. Again, there are two possibilities: a mistake in the program or someone who wrote the wrong state. Something more for research.
I love what can be seen on the other side: the previous group walking in front of the other side of the amphitheatre. If only this was an original photo (and not a photocopy); I could enlarge it enough to identify the group in front.

The famous horsemen in chain armour. They were so many that everybody took pictures of them.
