Photographer's Note

Bhainsrorgarh or Bhainsror is an ancient fort that has of late become a 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 is around 260 years old and was built around 1750. It is dramatically positioned on the bank of a 200 ft deep Gorge created by River Chambal & part of the palace you can see on the left, has now been converted into a 5 bed room luxury hotel. The bridge seen in the BG is the same one as seen in this picture.

Very nice scenic location indeed...there’s still quite a bit of rustic ness about this place which I liked, for example the flowers in the FG, they are wild, but so colourful! To illustrate the beauty of this fairly unknown and rustic palace/resort, this may not be the optimal picture, but thought I share with you this, so that some of you can make plans to stay in this luxury hotel! The palace rooms converted to this Hotel are to the left...further down, is the part of the palace which in not very good condition, & which I believe, under repairs. And yes, before I close, I must clarify, I am not getting any royalty from the palace/hotel for this.... ;-)
