Inside Jodhpurs’ Meherangah Fort
July 20, 2011 • Photography & Travel
This is day ten of our month long series of photographs on Rajasthan and today we look at the spectacular Meherangah Fort in Jodhpur.
The majestic fort is sprawled across a 125m-high hill (440-feet) and is an architectural marvel in itself. There are seven gates, which include Jayapol (meaning ‘victory’) built by Maharaja Man Singh to commemorate his victories over Jaipur and Bikaner armies. Within the fort, several brilliantly crafted and decorated palaces plus a museum housing an exquisite collection of palanquins, royal cradles, miniatures, musical instruments, costumes and furniture. You will find a nice detailed insight into Jodhpurs’ Meherangah Fort on Wikipedia.
During our 16-day meditation retreat to India in Oct/Nov we will spend 1-night in Jodhpur to explore the Meherangah Fort and the enchanting blue city. If you are interested in this spiritual adventure to northwestern India do visit our website for more details.
