Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur is one of the largest forts in India. Like so many of India’s monuments it is remarkably well preserved, thanks in part to the fact that it has been used and occupied since its foundations were laid in 1459. The fort houses an ornate palace that was used up until the early 20th century. Most of the current structure was built in the 17th century and the fort is home to a fine museum with collections of elephant howdas (like an saddle for an elephant), miniature paintings and turbans. Here are some of my photos from this place. It needs at least half a day to take it all in at a leisurely pace. I did not have that long so will definitely go back and see it all one day.
