Don't forget to wish everyone with "Khamma Ghani" while you're here!
Rajasthan abounds in forts which offer sweeping views of the panoramic landscape. Two most essential forts in Rajasthan are the Amber Fort in Jaipur and the Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur. The Amber Fort, also commonly known as the Amer Fort is a picture-perfect amalgamation of Hindu and Mughal architecture. The ancient stronghold of the Kacchawa Clan, the Amber Fort is a spectacular creation built out of white marble and red sandstone. The Maota Lake surrounding the fort offers crystal clear reflections of the entire fort and adds to the charm of this age-old monument. Jodhpur’s Mehrangarh Fort is one of the most massive forts in India, and towers above the whole city. Situated atop a cliff, the fort is still in pretty good shape and houses a museum which displays various artefacts and objects belonging to the ancient royal family. Another famous Rajasthani fort is the Jaisalmer Fort, commonly known as Sonar Quila. Entirely made out of sandstone, the fort gleams from a distance, lending it its name of Sonar Quila, which translates into Golden Fort.
Rajasthan also has a significant number of palaces that are of historical significance, the famous ones being the Umaid Bhawan Palace and the Jaipur City Palace. Both of these palaces date back to the high times, and you can see the furniture and other objects used by the royal families on view in these palaces.
