India - Jodhpur - Mehrangarh Fort - Palace

Jodhpur

Jodhpur, situated on the edge of the Thar Desert, is known as “the blue city” because of the many indigo colored houses in the old town. The Mehrangarh Fort sits 400 feet above the city and is enclosed by imposing thick walls. Its the largest fort in Rajasthan and has never been taken by force. I spent hours exploring the huge fort complex, which houses the Maharaja’s palace, temples, and extensive gardens.
