Solitude...


I was in Mehrangarh, the magnificent Fort of Jodhpur, when I clicked this one. Solitude, as is obvious, is the tag given to this man, standing all alone. Wearing a jodhpuri turban, he seemed to have been standing there only to be clicked. The beauty of the fort lies in its Jodhpur Sandstone, which is one of the world’s finest sandstone.

The present is a snap of a jharokha, a common architecture style followed in the desert districts of Rajasthan. This finely carved decorative window frame takes you back to royal Rajasthan, where kings appeared before their subjects on ornately decorated balconies. This large Jharokha is an example of the artistry of traditional craftsmen from Rajasthan. Their craft was previously meant only for Rajasthani royalty. For anyone who's not visited this place, I would strongly suggest... Its a must visit...!!!
