Stamp Information : THE FORTS OF INDIA Built by titans and lit by the glory of fire, blood and love- the grandest sights in India. The Forts of India, stand as befitting 'monuments' to the pride, courage and chivalry of the rulers and people of India who relentlessly strove against invading armies to preserve their freedom and to keep alive their fait and their culture. JODHPUR The historic fort of Jodhpur was founded by Rao Jodha in the year 1459 AD: who shifted his capitol from Mandore to present day Jaodhpur. Its original names were 'Chintamani' and 'Mordhaj' but later on it came to be called as Meherangarh- The Majestic Fort. The Fort stands out magnificently on an isolated rock about 400 feet above the city. It is the finest example of beautiful architecture, which can rightly be described as 'Poetry in Stone'. Long, slim minarets touching the sky and countless fine-latticed screens stand out against the huge walls, varying in height from 20 to 120 feet. The Fort has two principal entrances namely FATEH POL (Victory Gate) and JAI POL (Glory Gate) besides five other subsidiary entrances. Inside the Fort, there are magnificent Royal Palaces, built by various Rathore rulers of Marwar from time to time. An attempt has been made to recreate the traditional atmosphere in this historic monument by housing various items all over the Fort as part of Museum. Besides the Royal palaces, the temple of 'NAGNECHALJI', the family deity of the Rathores of Kannauj, and the 'Chamunda Devi Temple' draw regular devotees and visitors. (The above text is based on material published elsewhere). The Indian Posts & Telegraphs Department is happy to issue a set of four stamps on the Forts of India.
