Forts, palaces and lakes
The biggest attractions of all in Rajasthan are the several specimens of its fortified excellence. The magnificent ramparts watching over the cities, gargantuan gates that offer ingress to the horses and elephants through the winding accesses of the forts. The insides decked with glittering giant chandeliers, intricate glasswork, chairs made out of the finest timber, halls full of gewgaws in iron, brass, copper, pearls, stones, brought in from across the globe, pillars carved out of marble, and an endless ceiling acting as a sanctum for these valuables. Rajasthan has a remarkable number of forts and palaces overlooking the lakes, moats and hills. Some of them forgotten with time while some have been restored and turned into world-class heritage hotels. Among the places to visit in Rajasthan are the marque set of Amber fort in Jaipur set in red sandstone, the spectacular Mehrangarh fort in Jodhpur, the golden-hued bulwark in Jaisalmer, the pride of Chittorgarh, and the old fort of Junagarh. Apart from the impregnable might of the forts, the landscape of Rajasthan is dotted with grand palaces with stories of sybaritic lives of the kings and the rulers of the land.
