Neemrana - A quick getaway from Delhi

Neemrana is an ancient historical town in Alwar district of Rajasthan, India, situated at 122 km from Delhi on the Delhi-Jaipur highway in Behror tehsil. It is the site of 14th century Hill-Fort ruled by Chauhans till 1947. The erstwhile ruling family, considered to be the direct lineage of Prithviraj Chauhan, being unable to maintain the fort after abolition of privy purses sold the fort to the group, Neemrana Hotels, that has converted it into a heritage hotel

Had to stop for a quick breakfast on the way

 Sri Lankan Currency. Each note had different depictions on them. Some had masks, some with cultural symbols.

 Colombo Town Hall is an imposing neoclassical building built in 1927. It faces the Viharamahadevi Park. The white-domed Town Hall is said to have been modelled after the Capitol Building of Washington, D.C.
