Ended up seeing how a kite is made. Kite making in India was introduced in India during the reign of Mughal emperor Shah Alam. The tribe of kite makers is known as Patangbaaz. At the initial stage the kite was made in the form of Prism and was styled as Tinkoni Qandeel (prismatic candle). Tinkoni is the outer cover and inside this qandeel (Candle) a ball of rags soaked in oil was hung, with the help of a thin wire. When the ball of rags is lit, the hot air fills the qandeel and the tinkoni starts rising in the air giving a splendid view to spectators. It was basically a ‘Night sport’. For the purpose of day light flying it was modified into quadrangular in shape with better in mobility and control to the kite flyers. The design underwent further improvement and it acquired the appearance present day patang (kite). Apart from the sporty side, it is also played the role of messengers, conveying letters to distance corners of the city. The role has been described at length in florid Urdu in Masnavi-e-Zahi-e-Ishq by Nawab Mirza Shauq, one of the poets of the court of Nawab Wazid Ali shah. These kites were also a part of the Indian freedom movement, where the freedom fighters made king-size patangs in shimmering colors on which slogans for freedom were written. It is also said that people dwelled in the kingdom used to tie the strings of a flying tikkal (the old version, much bigger than a patang) to the leg of their children’s bed. The kite string created a vibration in the bed’s structure lulling the children. #AncientCrafts #Crafts #Festivals #FestivalsOfIndia #MakarSakranti #Uttarayan #Kite #Patang #KiteFlyingFestivals #Craftsman #India #StreetsOfJodhpur #Jodhpur #JodhpurDiaries #JodhpurJournal #Rajasthan #India #Wanderer #Wanderlust #Travel #Travelogue #TravelDiaries

Mandore is an ancient town, and was the seat of the Pratiharas of Mandavyapura, who ruled the region in the 6th century CE. The rulers of this dynasty probably became vassals of the imperial Gurjara-Pratiharas. After the disintegration of the Gurjara-Pratihara empire, one branch of Pratiharas continued to rule at Mandore. In 1395 CE, a princess of this branch married Rao Chunda of Rathore clan. Rao Chunda received the Junagarh fort in Mandore in dowry, and moved his capital to the site. The town remained the Rathore capital until 1459 CE, when Rao Jodha shifted his capital to the newly founded city of Jodhpur. #Heritage #Historic #Cenotaph #Temple #Shrine #Memorabilia #MaharajaGoneBy #Gardens #Splendid #Views #Mandore #OldCapital #Citadel #Jodhpur #JodhpurDiaries #JodhpurJournal #Rajasthan #India #Wanderer #Wanderlust #Travel #Travelogue #TravelDiaries
The well’s original system consisted of a Persian Wheel driven by a pair of bullocks circling the platform on top, which drew water up to two different access levels and a separate tank. Interestingly, the Rajput Princess who funded the well hailed from Patan in Gujarat, home to one of the finest Step Wells in the country. #Heritage #Historic #Architecture Restored #Water #WaterSystems #WaterWaysOfMarwar #Splendid #StepWells #Patron #Patronage #WaterBodies #Local #WaterTable #ToorJiKaJhalra #Jodhpur #JodhpurDiaries #JodhpurJournal #Rajasthan #India #Wanderer #Wanderlust #Travel #Travelogue #TravelDiaries
Toorji Ka Jhalra (Toorji’s Step Well) was built in Jodhpur the 1740s by a Queen, Maharaja Abhay Singh’s Consort, continuing an age old tradition that Royal women would build public water works. As with all step wells, the steps follow the fluctuating water table down to provide easy all-year round access. Interestingly this well was submerged and full of debris for decades. Only recently has it been drained, cleaned up and restored. In the process, the excavations went down over two hundred feet to expose hand carved treasures in Jodhpur’s famous rose-red sandstone; including intricate carvings of dancing elephants, medieval lions and cow water-spouts, as well as niches housing deities long gone. #Heritage #Historic #Restored #Water #WaterSystems #WaterWaysOfMarwar #Splendid #StepWells #Patron #Patronage #WaterBodies #Local #WaterTable #ToorJiKaJhalra #Jodhpur #JodhpurDiaries #JodhpurJournal #Rajasthan #India #Wanderer #Wanderlust #Travel #Travelogue #TravelDiaries

The mausoleum is built out of intricately carved sheets of marble. These sheets are extremely thin and polished so that they emit a warm glow when illuminated by the sun. #Heritage #Historic #Architecture #Splendid #IndianAesthetic #MarvelInMarble #Marble #Beaut #Beautiful #TajOrMarwar #Jodhpur #JodhpurDairies #JodhpurJournal #Rajasthan #India #Wanderer #Wanderlust #Travel #Travelogue #TravelDiaries
