Photographer's Note

Mehrangarh Fort has been build in 1459 by the ruler Rao Jodha.
Mehrangarh Fort is famous for its many courtyards and its fine ornate carvings.
The term "Mehran" is believed to descend from "mihir" which means "sun or sun-deity" in sanskrit."Garh" means "fort". In this case, Mehrangarh must be the Sun-Fort.

Thank you for looking!
