Junagarh Fort, Bikaner Overview

This 96 metre fort with two entrances was built in 15th century by one of the most able and trusted generals of Akbar, Raja Rai Singh. The Suraj Pol, or Sun Gate, is the main entrance to the fort. The distinctive feature of this fort and its palaces is the unparalleled quality of the stone carving. While the Rajputs are glorified, and appropriately, for their feats on the battlefield, its not realized that they came into their own only after they reconciled themselves to Mughal over-lordship. All their lasting achievements — the cities, the art — can be traced back to this time. Junagadh Fort is testament to another Rajput - Raja Rai Singh doing well for himself as a member of the Mughal court. He built this impressive structure in a span of five years, which has 37 bastions and two entrances. Constructed in red sandstone, the fort has a moat around it. The palaces have exquisitely carved windows, balconies, towers and kiosks.
