Junagarh Fort

This fort was built between 1587 and 1593. Later rulers added their own palatial suites, temples and plush courtyards.
Bikaner (Rajasthan), India.

Wow! Although my ancestry is linked to Junagarh, it's surprising that I have never been there!!

Love the architecture of these buildings. What is that in the last photograph Jose? It certainly is beautiful.

I don't know how people managed to build such amazing buildings so long ago. I guess you can do wonders with a lot of money and unlimited elbow grease.

The architecture here is incredibly beautiful! I always wonder how people were able to achieve such intricacy so long ago without modern tools.

My god, they didn't even have computers!

Hi JM:)

Lovely photos.

To tell you honestly every time you post some photos of my own country, I am astonished at the fact that you have seen more interesting places in India and captured them beautifully for posterity to see and enjoy the wonder of the incredible India.

The marvelous buildings, crafts and cultures of India that you portray so beautifully through you lenses amazes me. You are truly one of the best Indian Ambassadors.

Have a lovely Sunday JM:)
Joseph

Al ser un pais tan grande su riqueza cultural pareciera inagotable.
Un pais sorprendente tanto por sus tradiciones, edificaciones, religion e ideologias.
