Playing around in Mehrangarh Fort, Jodhpur, India's blue city 💙 I tested out so many top ranked places here to write about and can't wait to share all of it in a blog post! Such a great city - definitely add it to your India itinerary. It was even better a second time around! Outfit and photo by @studiotia
The Majestic Meharangarh (Mehran Fort). The entry to this Majestic Fort is gained through a series of seven gates, and each gate was built to memorate a certain victory or sacrifice.
There are various palaces and galleries within the Fort. The art form here is reminiscent of the Rajputana art culture.
Can you count the no of pigeons taking shelter from the Jodhpur heat, in the shadow?😃🐦 #WHPfindthelight#instagram#jodhpur#mehrangarh#rathore#rajputana
कर्मण्येवाधिकारस्ते मा फलेषु कदाचन।

You have the right to perform your duty but not in anticipation of the fruits of your actions. Let the fruits of your labour never be your motive , not attachment an excuse for your inaction. After a day of disappointed and unhappiness , I turn to my only solace, Sri Krishna. The sight of the majestic Mehrangarh fort made me relook at the day in a new light . #musings#mehrangarh
