For the entire duration of my Jaipur trip, this was the thought that ran through my mind.
Rajputs had everything: invincible forts, their own canon making factory..what more was needed? Why would they need to marry off their daughters to Mughals to ensure that their throne stayed intact?
The Jaiban is the largest canon in the world. Its USP is that it was used only once!
There is a museum where you can read about the canons, and the wars in which each canon was used. It is saddening to read that Hindu Rajput kings fought against Hindu Maratha kings.
There is a canon factory which is a must see. There is a point from where you can see Amber fort. There is a 1600 year old mandir on the fort.
