Junagarh Fort

This fort is in the Bikaner city of Rajasthan. This fort has a record of not being able to be conquered by anyone ever. It was built by the Rajput ruler Maharaja Rai Singh, who was an important official in the court of Emperor Akbar and was there till the reign of Jahangir. He is said to have headed a number of battles and received victory in hem. As a token of appreciation, the emperors would shower him with gifts in the form of revenues that he later used to build this magnificent palace complex. He also applied all the knowledge and taste that he had gathered during his journeys to other places. The palace complex is huge and has a number of palaces, buildings, temples, bastions, towers and domes. The main materials used for the building purpose are red sandstone and marble. What is the most remarkable are the intricate stone work on every inch of the complex and the range of variety used to complete the fort. The Suraj Pol was the main entrance gate and the others included the Chand Pol, Daulat Pol, Fateh Pol and others. The main palaces inside included the Chandra Mahal, Karan Mahal, Ful Mahal, Anup Mahal, Badal Mahal and others. There is also an old museum inside the fort complex.

We didn't really have an elaborate itenary for Bikaner as we were here just for a day. We visited the Junagharh fort, which i'd say is one of the best in terms of scale,and how well it has been maintained. They have compulsory guided tours, which makes the walk through alot more meaningful and informative.
