Rajesh...I think I would want to get to the fort both by walking and by elephant ride. That scalloped archway is beautiful. Can’t wait for your next post to learn a little more about your gorgeous country.

I've always admired those who've made the climb up for the elephant ride. I think it would make me fearful and feeling tipsy. but I still think I'd try it! lovely shadow shots. happy SSS.

I think an elephant ride would be a great way to get to the fort. But then, any way of getting there would be worthwhile.

Nice photo. I don't think there were elephants there 20 years ago. I remember a long, hot walk to the cool gardens at the top.

Such interesting shots. An elephant ride sounds like an exciting thing to do. I'd probably be too afraid I'd fall off though!
