Skywatch Friday - Mehrangarh Fort, Jodhpur

The Indian Desert State of Rajasthan is dotted with numerous Forts and palaces. Jodhpur is one of the important destinations in Rajasthan.

It is a small town - known as "Blue city" - with a wonderful hillock fort - palace. 

It takes at least two hours to complete the tour of the fort. The fort-palace is managed by Jodhpur royal family and they have done an excellent job in maintenance of the fort-palace and display of the royal artefacts. There are options of audio guide as well as human guides. It is recommended  to opt for either of the two which will help to understand the details of architectural heritage and stories behind the artefacts displayed in the fort-palace.

We were in Jodhpur during our long trip to Rajasthan in 2009.
