Title: Forts and Palaces of Rajasthan


1
Forts and Palaces of Rajasthan
  • Take a tour of all the forts and palaces of
    Rajasthan and get to savor the exquisite artistry
    that prevailed in the region a few centuries ago. 

2
One of the impressive fort of Rajasthan
  • Rajasthan once a royal and princely state of the
    mighty rulers of India owns many rugged and
    strategically built forts. It has mighty deserts,
    serene lakes, traditionally and culturally rich
    towns and villages, delightful and mouth watering
    spicy cuisines, spectacular flora and fauna,
    splendid art forms.

Amer Fort Jaipur
  • Jaipur, the capital city of Rajasthan, also known
    as the Pink City of India, is one of the most
    magnetic and charming cities in India. Opulent in
    heritage sites and royal references, the horizons
    of the city offer impressive tourism
    opportunities from end to end be it monuments,
     excursion spots, wild safaris, old temples,
    grand events, verdant gardens, colorful
    handicrafts, exciting shopping prospects you
    name it and Jaipur has it for you!

Jodhpur Fort
  • the Mehrangarh Fort perched atop a 150 meters
    high hill. One has to pass through seven gates to
    reach the massive fort from the 15th century.
     Marks of battles fought from the fort are still
    fresh on these gates and can transport you to the
    bygone era.   The fort is home to several
    palaces, galleries and temples inside, including
    some sprawling courtyards and exquisite carvings.
    The Jodhpur Mehrangarh Fort Museum showcases the
    well-preserved royal items like their costumes,
    paintings, weapons and palanquins. Worthy of
    particular mention is the view of the city of
    Jodhpur from the top of the fort. 

5
Jaisalmer Fort
  • Jaisalmer Fort in the heart of the city is a huge
    fort with 99 bastions and a 30 feet tall wall
    surrounding it. Hailed as the pride of
    Jaisalmer- the fort is well known as Sonar
    Quila, which literally means the Golden Fort.
    The yellow sandstones used to build the fort
    perpetually radiate golden hues, particularly
    during sunsets. The 360 degree view from the top
    of the fort is equally beguiling, as the entire
    city in bird eye view appears as if painted in
    golden yellow owing to pervasive use of yellow
    sandstone and yellow sand across its structures.
     The mansions, temples and residential complexes
    within the fort are said to depict a fusion of
    Mughal and Rajput architectural styles.
    Maharajas palace inside the fort complex is
    worthy of particular mention in terms of tourism
    quotient.

Junagarh Fort
  • Among the places to visit in Bikaner, Junagarh
    Fort unarguably leads the rest of the heritage
    sites thanks to its majestic dimensions and
    exquisite art and architecture. Originally
    constructed by 1593, the fort witnessed elaborate
    additions by the dozens by the subsequent heirs
    of the founder Maharaja Raja Rai Singh, the
    latest addition made in 1943 only. Per se, the
    fabulous fort boasts of as many as thirty-seven
    (37) unique palaces, temples and pavilions across
    the complex. 
  • What puts the Junagarh Fort apart from any other
    fort in Rajasthan is its unusual location on
    ground level (instead of some hill top) and its
    proven track record of remaining invincible
    throughout its lifetime in use. The fort also
    happens to be the most well-preserved and
    well-maintained forts in the state.
