The Formidable Heritage!

The word ‘Heritage’ makes me relive our travel in Rajasthan. Rajasthan’s diversity is beyond capture in words – rich heritage, vibrant culture, majestic monuments with appealing history,  artistically sound, vast sand dunes, colorful villages, warm people and much more. Rajasthan is famous for showcasing the royal heritage of palaces, forts, havelis & desert safaris, offering a glimpse of it’s spirited culture.

For this week’s photo challenge I’m sharing pictures of Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur. Founded in 1459, by Rao Jodha, Jodhpur (formerly known as Marwar) is the second largest city of Rajasthan.

The fort was named Mehrangarh, meaning ‘fort of the sun’ – a reference to the Rathore clan’s mythical descent from the sun god Surya. The fort has seven gates commemorating victories of various rulers over Jaipur, Bikaner and Mughals. The museum inside the fort houses exquisite royal collection. It’s also called the ‘Citadel of the Sun’.!!
