Have you ever wondered how this monument was made? No electricity. Only scaffolding. Working until late in the night. With simple tools which are now unknown. With nothing but an oil lamp to aid them and make their art a reality. It is the toil of dedicated, skilled and talented craftspersons and labourers which has given birth to such a beautiful piece of architecture. Needless to say, those arches, pinhole windows and frames are an epitome of classic Rajasthani architecture. Intricacy defines it. – Junargarh Fort, Bikaner, Rajasthan.
