Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur a tourist place to see

jodhpur-mehrangarh-fort.jpgI went to Jodhpur in Rajasthan to attend my friend’s wedding last weekend. The city is small in radius of 15km only but then there is the famous Mehrangarh Fort and the Umeid Palace. After attending her wedding I visited the fort. It was in old Jodhpur so it took only 15 minutes from my hotel to reach the place in the afternoon as it closed around 5 in the evening. The fort was amazingly beautiful on the top of a hill the fort can be seen from the city as well. I took the lift facility in the fort as because of so much of dancing in the wedding I was not in a mood to walk. The lift stopped at the peak of the fort form where I could see the entire city. And from there the museum of the fort also started with first showing the famous baggies in which the king family used to travel and they were all different from each other as there was one which I liked the most of peacock head and the carriage having the lion in build in the front of the baggie. The next room showed the antique clocks used by again the king family. I still remember there was one globe clock which had stopped working since some 18’s. Then I saw the arms and the swords of the king, the bedroom, the clothes, the dining area, the meeting area. After the museum is over there comes the shops of the museums from where I got my self a mirror and few things for my family. When I came out there were two girls wearing the particular rajasthani dress in black who were dancing and 2 guys playing flute and singing the folk song. There were tanks kept on the border of the fort. And then came the temple of their kul Devi which is very famous in Marwari’s. The fort in short is must watch, its architecture and the build is very beautiful and cannot be find anywhere according to me.
