A "chhatri" in the middle like that... let's see... the Gadisar Lake at Jaisalmer has such a structure. But then no hills can be seen in my pics, though there are some visible in the background in your pic. AFAIR it was a pretty flat terrain in Jaisalmer.

The lake at Ajmer?
Its not Udaipur at all. Your last line -its very close to that place.

I guess you'll catch it this time , otherwise i'll give you a very strong hint.

Bingo, it's Pushkar Lake! Correct?

Here's one more from Rajasthan... It's obviously inside a temple. Where?

Hint: There's a lake not too far away from this temple too!

The Dilwara temple is a Jain temple, there are no Nandi statues there, and in any case photography is forbidden inside. But you're close, so why not give it one more try?

Absolutely correct, PW. So you want to break up the dialogue between me and Harish? Fine, so you answer where exactly this pic is from, PW! No hints, no clues...

Ha ha good one. I don't know why others are shying away from this thread, I'm finding it very very interesting and came to know about quite a few new places.

BTW, there is a guess Ladakh thread also in Travelogue section, probably that can be merged with this thread as they are serving the same purpose. Mods, any thoughts?

Yes, I thought it would be too easy for you soon after I posted it. Lots of dead giveaways there. One more - too famous a structure to miss, esp. if you've ever visited the place! I'm not sure if we have members here who hail from that place.
