The Jaigarh fort was never conquered in battle, and was also the strongest of the three forts in Jaipur. During the Mughal dynasty, the fort bore witness to an ambush by Aurangzeb who defeated and killed his own brother who was the overseer of the cannon outpost in the fort. Apart from that, the fort never witnessed any major resistance, and only test-fired the world's largest cannon, once!
The Jaigarh Fort is a palatial structure perched on the 'Cheel ka teela' hills, much like a jewel on a crown. Designed by a talented architect called Vidhyadhar, the fort is a regal reminder of the city's affluent history and is named after Jai Singh II, the ruler who got it built.
The fort is built with thick walls of red sandstone and is spread over a vast range of 3 kilometers in length, with a width of one kilometer. The fort houses the world's greatest cannon on wheels known as the 'Jaivana Cannon' and a huge palace complex. This includes the Laxmi Vilas, Lalit Mandir, Aram Mandir and the Vilas Mandir. The fort has a well-tended garden which can be viewed by tourists even today along with an armory and a museum.

sentiments are real
Интересно, что, даже когда на большом острове, все равно ощущаешь себя на острове. За день по Сардинии проехать можно совсем немного, но побережье здесь очень разнообразно, за каждым поворотом дороги новый пейзаж, другие горы, другой песок, и море даже чуть другое. Тишина, воздух, цикады, и где-то там далеко цивилизация.

I still remember the view
When I was with you 💔
You can't change everything in one night. But one night can change everything 🏙
"I often think that the night is more alive and richly colored than the day" • Vincent Van Gogh
"She just wants to be beautiful
She goes unnoticed, she knows no limits
She craves attention, she praises an image
She prays to be sculpted by the sculptor"
• Alessia Cara, Scars to your beautiful
Life is just like painting. Draw the lines with hope, Erase the errors with tolerance. Dip the brush with lots of patience and color it with love 😊💞
"She don't see her perfect
She don't understand she's worth it
Or that beauty goes deeper than the surface"
• Alessia Cara, Scars to your beautiful
Be yourself and quit trying to be anyone else 👌
"You haven't seen the best of me
I'm still working on my masterpiece"
• Jessie J. Masterpiece
"I dream my paint and then I paint my dream"
• Van Gogh
For me, This painting describes how an introvert person looks like 😐
Painting is a silent poetry, and
Poetry is a painting that speaks 📝
"Everybody is a Genius, But if you judge a fish by its a ability to climb a tree it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid" •Albert Einstein
Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime 🐟
"Fish are friends not food"
• Bruce fr. Finding nemo
True elegance for me is the manifestation of an independent mind 👌
Don't get me wrong, I admire elegance and have an appreciation of the finer things in life. But to me, beauty lies in simplicity 🙂
Like all magnificent things, its very simple 👌
When you find your passion, turn a deaf ear to the naysayers and follow your dreams 🙂
Learn to sparks your life ✨
To me, Glamour isn't about being sparkly ✨
"Let light shine out of darkness" ✨
"It is during the our darkest moments that we must focus and see the light" 👌
Simplicity is the key to brilliance ✨
Be the light that shines upon ⭐
Shine like the whole universe is yours ✨
Everything sparkles under a chandelier ✨
Elegance is not being noticed, it's about being remembered 🙂
In order for the light to shine so brightly, the darkness must be present 🌚🌝
Happiness can find even in the darkest of times. If one, only remembers to turn on the light 😇
Within you is the is the light of a thousand suns ☀
Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.
Look at how a single candle can both defy and define the darkness
Darkness is the subjective word; it depends what your viewpoint is and how you live life
I guess darkness serves a purpose: to show us that there is redemption through chaos
I've tried to catch you and to win you back but I've failed 😔
Hope is being able to see that there is light despite of all darkness
You are like nature
It is simple but beautiful ☘💞
When there is hope
There is love 💞☘
Gloom in a different way 👌
Being different is a beautiful thing sometimes 👌
Lemme inspired you every each day 😊
I will always be yours forever and more through the push and the pull 🎶
Just like a lie meets the truth, a fake flower bloomed amidst my world of realities 💔
I was made for loving you 😊
