Rajasthan’s history is enshrined in it’s forts, several of which dot the arid landscape. The Rajput’s were prolific builders who left behind a legacy of some of the most imposing and magnificent forts and palaces in the world. Cities, towns and villages – all had their forts & protective ramparts. It was customary to build the palace within the fort, outside which lay the city, enclosed within a fortified wall, as in Jodhpur and Udaipur. Some forts occupied commanding heights on hills overlooking the city, as in Jodhpur, the entire settlement is within the fortification as an enclosed unit.
