Yes, very true. As I strolled across the magnificent fort of Jodhpur, a living testimony that recalls the glorious past of Indian Rajput kings, I loved peeping into the history that recounts the chronicles and legends of Jodhpur’s rich past.
In other words, I strolled across the marvels of architecture and grandeur they were associated with, not to miss lush green lawns of palaces, colorful textile market of Jodhpur(a historical city of Rajasthan, India). Enjoy the stroll.
The fort you see in pictures are of famous Mehrangarh Fort, I visited today. Few words about it from Google Uncle:
“The fort stands a hundred feet in splendor on a perpendicular cliff, four hundred feet above the sky line of Jodhpur. Burnished red sand stone, imposing, invincible and yet with a strange haunting beauty that beckons . Much has been written about the Citadel of the Sun, for truly, it is one of the most impressive in all Rajasthan. So colossal are its proportions that Rudyard Kipling called it â€œ the work of giantsâ€. Today, it is acknowledged as one of the best preserved fort in India.”
Yes, that’s it, great and that photo of you is just super. My camera would have a great day in Jodhpur I am certain.
Yes absolutely, you would have love to capture riot of colours here

Can you imagine how long it took to carve some of those intricate pieces of architectures? Like that curved stairway? Gorgoeous. And you look great 🙂
Seriously. That too without any advance technology and cranes to lift huge rocks to that height. The stairway was so old but surprisingly no signs of rusting. Thanks for the compliment ðŸ˜Š
