Walking along the lavishly carved stone corridors and passing by stunningly built pavilions, exquisite royal quarters, minarets, and archways in Junagarh Fort in Bikaner we were lost in nostalgia.
Ornamented court yards reminded us of the past glory of the city. A network of hallways in addition to the frescoed rooms connected by steep stairways greeted us during our visit to the fort.
Protecting the fort is a thick, crenellated stone wall that is around 986 meters long. The fort has two entrances of which the main entrance is named the Suraj Pol. Architectural marvel are the palatial mansions with jharoka windows and expansive court yards like Anoop Mahal, Karan Mahal, Chandra Mahal, Dungar Niwas, Bijai Mahal, Gaj Mandir, Ganga Niwas and the Rang Mahal are there.
Highlight of the fort is Phool Mahal with wall patterned with colored glass and mica shreds.
