Fort Fatigue / fohrt fəˈtēg / (n) Extreme tiredness associated with touring multiple forts, palaces and temples in a short period of time, usually accompanied by crankiness and a desire to drink Kingfisher Beer.
The western Indian state of Rajasthan is packed with dazzling religious temples, fairytale palaces and imposing fortresses. We spent three weeks traveling through the colorful state and didn’t even visit big ticket locations like Jaisalmer or Mt. Abu, and I can’t say that I missed out. We saw so much mind-blowing architecture during our trip that I left sated on ancient forts. I am good for awhile.
In our travels we suffered from an affliction known as “fort fatigue” and if you manage to look at all the photos I have stuffed into this post, you too will suffer the same fate.
Click on any of the photos below to open up a slideshow view. Hopefully, the photos will give you a taste of what Rajasthan is like, and you won’t have to endure extreme heat, shoo off persistent touts or dodge cow poop to see it.
Note to reader: There are some photos of Agra Fort below, and yes I realize it is not actually in the state of Rajasthan. But, it is nearby and the architecture is the same.
Okay, so there you have it. If you looked through all of those photos, I am sure you are exhausted.
