Junagadh Fort - Review

Located in the arid regions of the Thar Desert in Rajasthan the Junagarh Fort is a precious gem of Indian architecture. It was built by the infamous Raja Rai Singh of Bikaner. He held a high position in the court of the Mughal Emperor Akbar and received huge sums of revenues through which he funded the fort’s construction. It started in 1589 and was completed by 1594. The Raja was extremely fond of art and architecture and as a result the fort is a hybrid of Rajasthani as well as Mughal style of architecture.

Over the course of generations renovations and additions were made making it an amalgamation of the best of Indian, Mughal and British styles. It has 7 gates and several pavilions with Hindu and Jain temples. It has 6 huge halls built for separate purposes from entertaining the guests to royal suppers to study and many more. The Anupmahal being one of the most beautiful of all, its ceilings inlaid with mirrors and Italian tiles and fine lattices. A must visit place indeed.

  • A great tourist destination in bikaner. The fort is well maintained containing all the royal articles and weapons in the display. A vintage plane is also kept in it. The fort is very beautiful and astounding. You can get spectacular pictures here. Photography is allowed. The entry fee includes the fee for a tour guide. They make groups of people and tour guide takes them through the fort explaining every aspect of it. You have the choice to stay with the guide or to roam around on your own. With the guide you get all the facts and history of the fort but don't get as much time for pictures.

  • जूनागढ़ किला बीकानेर का ऐतिहासिक किला है। जूनागढ़ किला का निर्माण बीकानेर के राजा राव बीकाजी ने करवाया । ये किला लगभग 1500 से 1550 के आस पास बना हुवा है। ये किला बहुत मशहूर किला है। इस किले को देखने के लिये देश विदेश से व्यक्ति आते है। इस किले में आज भी पुरानी बंदूके, पुरानी राजा महाराजा की पोशाके सम्भाल कर रखी गई है। इस किले में गणेश जी का सुंदर मंदिर बना हुवा है। जो देखने लायक है। पूरे किले में हाथ की नकाशी की है। जो बहुत सुंदर लगती है। आज भी इस किले की टाइम टाइम पर मरम्मत की जाती है।

  • One of the better maintained forts seen. A lot fewer tourists, provide for a better experience. Generally speaking, aspects and elements, viewed and displayed within, appear more extensive than other forts in Rajasthan. Weaponry on display are creatively varied, and rather extensive.
