Trip to India Jan-Feb 2013 Bikaner Fort

 The Bikaner Junagarh Fort is unique in that it is on flat land in the middle of the city.
 The entrance to one of the inner courtyards
 Despite its location, it was never conquered.
 Built in the late 1500's it has numerous inner courtyards

 This one hosted ceremonial events.  The Hall of the Audience
 Blue tiles imported from Germany
 Called Anup Mahal Chowk the windows in this area were for the women to view the proceedings.
 Home from the campaign
 Ceremonial swords
 Ceremonial standards.
A throne room.  Note the mirrored ceiling.
