Incessant rainfall hit normal life in Jaipur where many areas faced waterlogging on Saturday.

Rains have been pounding the district since Friday night, leaving many areas around Sikar Road and Jal Mahal submerged.

People faced problems due to accumulation of water in many other low-lying areas and roads. Rainwater accumulated on Tonk Road, SMS hospital premises, B2 Bypass, Jawahar Nagar, Vidyadhar Nagar among others.

Waterlogging led to traffic jams on several roads including the Jaipur-Ajmer highway.
