Half-day visit to Junagarh Fort


| May 15, 2020

Junagarh fort is undoubtedly one of the most interesting forts in Rajasthan, with its sumptuously decorated interiors. Built in 1588 by Raja Rai Singh, it is unusual in the sense that it was one of the few major forts in Rajasthan that was not built on a hilltop. Instead, it was built on the desert plains, its rugged sandstone bastions and graceful pavilions and balconies silhouetted against the sky. Equally enchanting is Lallgarh Palace. Designed by Sir Swinton Jacob, this exotic palace has magnificent pillars, grand halls and Italian colonnades. It houses the fourth largest library in the world and its own museum. Share:
