Presenting a photoblog on Mehrangarh Fort in blue city Jodhpur.
At one of the gates inside Mehrangarh fort are the handprints of 31 ladies who performed Sati. This ritual was actually a practice of self immolation by women who lost their husbands. The gory practice was later put to an end with the efforts of Sri Raja Ram Mohan Roy.
The mode of transport for the rulers that time was horse back, elephants or palanquins. Here are few on display.
Another interesting place inside the fort is Jhanki Mahal. This palace was for royal ladies to watch processions pass by. Jhanki in Hindi means peeping.
Studded with intricate mirror work from ceiling to every nook and corner, the glass palace inside Mehrangarh Fort is a treat to eyes.
