The forts and palaces of Rajasthan are spectacular sights and marvelous monuments.
Besides being exemplary architectural wonders, they are the setting for the various historic and dramatic episodes and wars waged here.
The extensive use of marbles, stain glass, gold and silver and metal inlaid work makes the palaces breathtaking sights. The women's quarters were beautifully done up with teak and marble jail work.
The forts of the state were constructed to be impregnable garrisons. The tall walls, ramparts and moats still stand testimony to the military genius of the Rajput warriors.
Most of these forts have withstood many attacks and sieges.
Guerilla warfare was common in the state and these forts are known to have secret gateways and hidden tunnels for effective use in case of an invasion.
