Photographer's Note

Bhainsrorgarh or Bhainsror is an ancient fort that has become a major tourist spot in the state of Rajasthan, India. The famous British historian Colonel James Tod said, after seeing the splendid and mesmerizing beauty of Bhainsrorgarh, that if he was offered a Jagir (fiefdom) and given an option to choose it anywhere in Rajasthan, he would choose Bhainsrorgarh.

Bhainsrorgarh is located 50 Km from Kota & the journey along the road takes 1 hour. Bhainsrorgarh is an impregnable fort, inhabited from at least the 2nd century BC. The present fort (part of which you can see roughly in the centre of the frame) is around 260 years old and was built around 1750. It is dramatically positioned on the bank of the Chambal River & has now been converted into a 5 bed room luxury hotel. The lone boat sums up the tranquility of the place.

3 years, 445 posts, that's my 'mileage' in TE as of today.

I had joined this site with the idea of knowing more about the world, and also to improve my photographic skills. I do not know if I have made any improvements as a photographer in this three year journey...you are the best judge, but the fact is, I get great joy in sharing photographs with you all, made friends in the way, some of whom I’ve had the privilege to meet in person. The sad part is, a lot of excellent & talented photographers have left this site over the last one year, but still there’s a lot of talent, both old & new on display here, from whose pictures, I learn almost every day. On my part I try to share with you pictures from various parts of my country, India & also showcase the places less traveled. This is the first picture of Bhainsorgarh in TE (unless somebody had posted a shot earlier with an incorrect location).

I take this opportunity to thank every one in this community for sharing such wonderful pictures from every parts of our beautiful planet. Seeing your pictures has indeed been an enlightening experience for me. A special thanks to those, who have taken time & efforts to comment or critique my pictures, helping me in my quest to improve my photography and knowledge.
