Artist's Description

Though Jaigarh Fort is often very utilitarian and functional rather than having purpose directed at form and beauty, the central courtyard and gardens provide a wonderful contrast.

There are two chhatri (‘umbrella’) structures at each end of the courtyard, next to the fort wall. These are linked by a deep red arched bridge, which itself has beautiful carvings.

There is a wonderful view over (left to right) the Amber Fort, Amber City, Jaipur City and the Aravalli Hills.

On the right, the fort wall contains holes for pouring hot water and oil, and for archers to aim at any potential invaders or unwelcome guests.
