Junagarh

About This Place

Junagarh would have to be one of the Rajasthan's most impressive fort complexes.

Junagarh Fort was constructed between 1588 and 1593 by Raja Rai Singh, a general in the army of mughal emperor Akhbar, with embellishments in the form of palaces andluerious suites added by subsequent Maharajas. This fort has a 986m-long wall with 37 bastions, a moat and two entrances. The Surajpol or the 'Sun Gate' is the main entrance. The palaces within the fort are on the southern side and make a picturique ensemble of courtyards, balconies, kiosks, towers and windows. A major feature of fort and palaces is the superb quality of stone carving. The handprints which can be seen close to the Daulatpol commemorate the wives of Rajput soldiers lost in battles, who committed sati on their husbands' funeral pyres.

Despite that fact Junagarh doesn't command hilltop position, as do some of the Rajathan's other grand forts, it is no less imposing and a credit to its planners and architects has never been conquered.
