Hawa Mahal, Jaipur, RajasthanTours of Rajasthan - In spite of the presence of a huge desert, it would be like undermining the beauty and charm of the place if Rajasthan is merely called a land of desert. Infact, it is a golden desert, a land of superlatives wherein everything is simply beautiful and fascinating.

Rajasthan is packed with a history that dates back to many thousand years. And the best examples of Rajasthan's great historical past are the magnificent forts and palaces dotting the landscape of the state. Some of them are legacies of the brave Rajputs while others tell of the luxurious lifestyle of rulers of princely states.

Rajasthan Tour to Forts and Palaces of Rajasthan

The Forts of Rajasthan
Mehrangarh Fort : The Mehrangarh Fort of Jodhpur is one of the most formidable structures seen in the whole of Rajasthan. This is a 5 km long fort standing on a 125 metre high elevated land. Within the fort complex are some beautiful palaces with intricately carved panels, latticed windows and evocative names. The fort has been built in such a way that it is virtually invincible from outside.

Meherangarh Fort, RajasthanJunagarh Fort : The Junagarh Fort of Bikaner was built by Rai Singh during the period 1588-1593. This is a huge fort with a 986 metre long wall having 37 bastions, a moat and two entrances. Unlike the other forts of Rajasthan that have been built on high grounds, this fort has been built in the plains. The major attractions within the fort complex are Anup Mahal, Diwan-e-Khas, Hawa Mahal, Badal Mahal, Chandra Mahal, Phool Mahal, Rang Mahal, Dungar Mahal and Ganga Mahal.

Jaigarh Fort : Built by Sawai Jai Singh in the year 1726, Jaigarh Fort of Jaipur is a fantastic example of military structure of medieval India. The chief attraction of this fort is 'Jai Ban', the largest cannon in Asia. There is also a museum within the fort displaying a wide collection of weapons and cannons used by the Rajput rulers.

Nahargarh Fort : On the outskirts of Jaipur city, Nahargarh Fort stands on the rugged Aravali Hills. Nahargarh literally means abode of the tigers and was built by Jai Singh II in 1734. From the very top of the fort, a wonderful view of Mansagar lake and the Jal Mahal Palace are available.

Amber Fort : The Amber Fort of Jaipur was built by Raja Man Singh in 1600 AD. But the construction could not be completed and was continued by Raja Jai Singh. Finally, it was completed in its present form by Sawai Jai Singh in the eighteenth century. The best part of the fort is the fusion of Hindu and Muslim styles in its architecture. The fort has been built using red sandstone and white marble.

Jaisalmer Fort : The Jaisalmer Fort is a massive structure that stands about 100 metres away from the city. The fort houses a citadel within its massive ramparts. Several entrances called Pols guard the Megh Durbar and Jawahar Mahal of the fort. They include Ganesh Pol, Suraj Pol, Bhoota Pol and the Hava Pol. The main market place called the Manek Chowk is situated just outside the fort complex. The fort of Jaisalmer is also popularly known as Golden Fort.
