Mick Jagger made the most of his Rajasthan trip. The musician soaked in some of the winter sun and even explored the desert state on a tuk-tuk.

The musician posted a video on his Instagram profile where he can be seen admiring the jewellery of a Rajasthani native and enjoying a tuk-tuk ride.

In the video, he is seen talking to a woman dressed in traditional wear. He asks her for her name, and says: "I like your jewellery."

The woman, named Santosh, is unable to respond in English but seems happy about being complimented for the many jewellery pieces she flaunts -- heavy neckpieces, bangles and a nath.

Jagger`s video then takes viewers on a ride navigating the narrow lanes of a busy marketplace.

"Getting around on a tuk-tuk," Jagger captioned the video. 


The singer shared a few photographs of himself and is seen in a powder blue shirt paired with black pants. 

"Had an amazing time exploring India," he wrote for one of his posts. 

On January 15, Jagger had tweeted: "Enjoying the vibrant sights and sounds of India!"


The background seemed to be Jodhpur`s Umaid Bhawan Palace in Rajasthan. However, it is not known if Jagger is here for work or for a vacation.
