Polo, The King of Games, The Game of Kings

On the polo ground, two teams of four players on horseback rush in the direction of the wooden ball, jumping, flying, and whistling through the air. In Jaipur, the polo tradition dates back to Raja Man Singh Ji, King of Amber, who in the 16th century had taken a keen interest in ‘chaugan’ while staying in Akbar’s court. http://www.kamalan-travels.com/blog/
