[Pics] Jaipur Metro’s Mansarovar Depot & OCC Building

Recently on my FaceBook page, I was asked by a follower to run a post on the “mysterious” Mansarovar Depot of Jaipur about which little is published on the web, so here’s a little post packed with images dedicated towards this depot which is spread across a 27.6 acre site at the southern tip of the metro line.

Jaipur’s metro trains are controlled and monitored from the Operation Control Centre (OCC) seen above.  It’s basically the primary control & nerve center for managing all operations of the 9.63-km Jaipur Metro Rail system.
