Leaving the Amber Fort/Palace complex we travelled along the lakeshore back to Jaipur. We made a stop at a vantage point to take photos of Jal Mahal -- the  "Water Palace" a palace located in the middle of the Man Sagar Lake. An amazing amount of work had been done on the lake. The lake drains were diverted, two million tonnes of toxic silt were dredged from the bottom, increasing its depth by over a metre, a water treatment system was developed, local vegetation and fish reintroduced, the surrounding wetlands regenerated and five nesting islands created to attract migratory birds.

It was also a good chance to buy a glass of fresh cane juice from a vendor who had his cane crushing machine set up at roadside. 

Our next stop was at the Krishna Textiles factory outlet. We were shown a huge selection of textile products for sale. The staff also demonstrated how the cloth was dyed by using large metal stencils. Sue-On made purchases that would be sent to Canada: a huge table cloth, tops, scarves, and gifts for the folks back home.

For lunch we stopped at Jaipur's Rainbow Restaurant for curry wraps and drinks.
