    by kokoryko

On a hill near Jodhpur, North of the Fort, is a hill (Google Earth: 26 18? 17.71?N ; 73 10? 01.90?E), from where you not only have a nice view over the fort in the afternoon, but you also will see one of these shrines or little cenotaphs which decorate many places of Rajasthan. This one here is quite a funny one (to me!), with its bright colours, the representation of a very strong character, taking advantage of the shape of the rock. Well, you have to walk a little bit, but will be rewarded with the ?discovery? of these strange works of religious art. There are many of these cenotaphs in the hills of Rajasthan.
