This is more of the fort. We arrived near sunset just before closing and were practically alone here. It is quite a huge place containing fortifications, palaces, etc. It was wonderful really to wander around.

I was quite taken with the designs and shapes of the Mughal buildings. Those arches and domes and colonnades are just so darn photogenic.

They used very little furniture but rather lived on piles of carpets and pillows, which I like. And because of the religious proscription against images you don't see a lot of goo-gahs but just patterns and the beauty of the materials make up the decoration.
