Forts of India- Jodhpur

by Harsh Bhargava June. 15, 2012 3417 views

Mehrangarh Fort, Jodhpur, Rajasthan, India.
A formidable fort, built 500 years ago is a photographer's delight.
Using red sand stone, it rises majestically on a hill top! Sand stone which is as hard as granite, is tough to carve. But see the lattice work in 3rd picture– simply awesome!
Do not miss the traditionally dressed man at the entrance to the Fort.

View from hill top– Mehrangarh Fort, Jodhpur, India.

Jharokas– latticed windows for the Queen and other ladies to view the courtyard below. Carved out of red sand stone, it is a work of art!

Traditional Rajasthani costune.

Sheesh Mahal– Palace chamber with thousands of mirror pieces and painted walls and ceiling.
