One of the things I loved while travelling through Rajasthan was the decorative walls outside of many homes. On a much grander scale are the haveli (painted) mansions which is one of the main reasons to visit this region. More suprisingly, when walking around towns such as Udaipur, are the many homes which have the most colourful paintings on the walls outside.
I particularly liked the ones of the elephant headed god Ganesha. I’m not sure if they are to represent some particular occasion such as a birth or a wedding, as many have dates associated with them, but they are so beautiful.
