Part of the Blue City from the fort apart from magnificent views it generates the blue is also said to repel insects. The tomb 200 meters away from the fort. It’s surprising that there is any marble left in India, the marble work is on par with the usual brilliance of Indian architecture. The view from the tomb. This is said to be the best fort in India and I couldn’t argue with that. All details were thought out including making sharp bends before the entrance doors so elephants could not build up enough speed to ram the doors. This fort was also a scene in Batman The Dark Knight Returns when he makes it out of the pit. There are still cannon ball marks from previous attacks, this fort has never been taken forcefully.Neil Greentree and his local mate. Neil has been coming to India since the 60’s and is a photographer it was not until later we realized that he took the photos for the entrance ticket. We have seen a few other shots of his in a few books. Just when you think you have seen the best room in the house another one jumps right out at you. Brett Sargent in another world.
