Mehrangarh Fort Jodhpur

By sawsengee  
The Majestic view of the towering Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur Rajasthan.....perching high above the plains with the myriads of blue houses dotting the valley floor. Variations include:
1. the grand entrance to the fort,
2. the internal courtyards with intricate carved sandstone lattices and windows,
3. framed view of the fort through the numerous arches,
4. the interior view of the stained-glass rooms for the Maharaja and Maharani,
5. the actual handprints/spots of the women rajasthani royal households who had committed suttee (self imolation by throwing themselves
into the burning flames of funeral pyres to following their dead hushands).
6. the night view of the Mehrangar Fort from the valley floor.

Here are links to the history of the fort:
