Mehrangarh Fort – 3

Not just the fort, the artifacts within the museum are all in good condition and worth spending time over. The various rooms in the palace of the fort are breath taking.

The elaborate domed gilt Mahadol palanquin, won in a battle from the Governor of Gujarat in 1730.

Jewelry box of the queens, all in ivory.

Various arms used then…

The Elephant Seat Gallery of the fort has the best collection of Elephant seats in the country. Of great historical significance is the Mughal Emperor Shah Jehan’s silver howdah, which was presented to Maharaja Jaswant Singh of Jodhpur on 18th December 1657.

Can I say I liked this fort the most? Difficult to answer really! But no doubt this has been maintained the best of all.
