The teams continue the leg started in the previous episode after receiving a clue from Phil at the roof of the Charbaugh multiflats in India. The clue has them boarding a mystery train where they learn that after a journey of nearly a day's length, they'll arrive at the Sardar Market and make their way to a clock tower. Once there, they learn that it doesn't open till 10 A.M., so the teams stay at a hotel and some enjoy local celebrations. The next morning, one team opts for a Fast Forward, where the other teams do a Detour --- Trunk or Dunk. All teams choose Trunk, requiring them to transport a large model elephant half of a mile to a temple, rather than Dunk, which would have required them to dye white sheets until they found a clue. Some teams do well by enlisting the help of others, but one team falls behind. Later, a Roadblock requires one member of each team to race a camel two laps around a course. As the teams then race for the Pit Stop one team makes a major mistake in navigation that could cost them the race.

The Amazing Race is an adventure reality show hosted by Phil Keoghan that pits 10, 11, or 12 teams of 2 or 4 people against each other in a race around the world for approximately 40 days. In a leg, they go to destinations where they will complete a roadblock, a task where 1 person completes (Season 1-7) or 2 people (Season 8), a detour, where you have to decide between two tasks that are usually opposite of each other, and a miscellaneous task.
After they complete all these tasks, they will be directed to go to a Pit stop where they will have a 24 hour rest period where they will be able to eat, drink, sleep, and mingle with other teams. The last team to check into the Pit Stop usually is eliminated, but sometimes there is a non-elimination leg in which no one is eliminated. After all teams are eliminated except for 3, these three race to the finish line where the winning team wins 1 million dollars.
