"Mehrangarh Fort - Sheesh Mahal" Mehrangarh Fort Tip by Willettsworld

Mehrangarh Fort, Jodhpur: 76 reviews and 251 photos

 
 

Mehrangarh's Sheesh Mahal, despite its relatively late date is a fine example of a typical Rajput Sheesh Mahal, very different from the Mughal, though no doubt originally inspired by that immensely popular Mughal fashion.

The mirror-work includes large, regular pieces, rather than an intricate mosaic of tiny fragments; another difference is the superimposition over the mirror-work of brightly painted religious figures made in plaster.
