Chittorgarh Fort, Rajasthan

by Andrea November. 22, 2007 3461 views

Chittorgarh Fort is the largest in Rajasthan, if not in India. Its walls are 7km long. Inside the walls are ruined palaces, museums, temples, towers, tanks and a traditional village.

A bicycle is an ideal way to get around.

This couple washing saris are in their 70s at least. The old man suffers from osteoporosis and was unable stand up beyond a rightangle.

Not a bad location as laundries go.

Another very nice laundry

Do you see what i mean?

Still, nothing can hide the fact that washing is a labourious task.

You can go here in your break though.

Or spend the whole day here playing if your mum doesn't need you to help earn the family's living and you can't afford to go to school.

Spectacular architecture. A Jain temple. This one is closed to the public but there is another that you can climb up to the top inside of.

Who'd want to be reincarnated as a temple bull. Not me.


Ramparts and a bit of old wall in the foreground.

Washing IS tough there. #5 and #6 are faves here. Do you know the Cartier Bresson image of women in Kashmir?:
