According to one allegory when Lord Rama, hero of the Hindu epic Ramayana wanted to cross the ocean to rescue his wife Sita, who had been abducted by the demon-king Ravana, he was turned back by the Sea-God. Furious, Rama mounted his arrow to dry up the ocean forcing the Lord of the Sea to retreat. However the arrow once mounted had to be released and Rama fired it into another body of water located in western Rajasthan, thus drying it up. This is the area known for Marwar or Marusthali or the land of the dead. Jaisalmer Fort is known as an architectural masterpiece, the Jodhpur fort is no less and you can see it in the horizon long before you enter the city. The incline on which the Mehrangarh Fort was built was known as Bakharchiriya or bird’s nest, and today the top of the castle presents a bird’s eye view of the entire city and its suburbs. Jodhpur is one of the fascinating destinations of Rajasthan and is dotted with number of big and small attractions. Umaid Bhawan Palace is a perfect example of early modern period architecture. Umaid Bhawan palace forms the grand private royal houses of the world and has a good collection of royal paraphernalia on exhibition besides housing a number of charming palaces. The main monument has rare portraits of many Rajput rulers on display. If you travel to Jodhpur, this is a place you must visit. Keeping in view the rough terrain it is not astonishing that the architecture of the city was influenced by it. Desert architecture is noted for two dissimilar traits, the need to guard against the heat and to fortify itself against invasions. Defenses tend to fuse with the color of the land, providing it with a natural camouflage. Huge entrance gates are en suite with iron nails to prevent elephants from bringing them down. The palaces and the mansions within the complex are more delicately designed. The main palaces you can see are the Phool Mahal, the Moti Mahal, the Jhanki Mahal, the Sheesh Mahal and the Sadar Vilas.
