Forts in Jodhpur

Among the princely settlements in Rajasthan, Jodhpur is one of the exclusive choices to visit. The Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur is the most majestic fort ever seen. It is 5 kilometres long and resides on a 125 meters high hill. The palace is beautiful with its panel carvings and indoor paintings. The interior of the palace includes Palanquins, Elephant howdahs, and miniature paintings and costumes of the ancient kings. The fort is much closed to the desert of Thar and hence the fort is created in a way that can save the people residing here in the summer season. The height of the Fort is used to avoid the invaders and keep them limited in a way that can help to protect the city and dwellers. Hence, the fort is a perfect example of the care that was taken by the kings for the public in the past.
