Jaipur: Amber Fort: looking uphill

View from a courtyard in the Amber Fort.
I find all these ancient fortifications really fascinating. How they were able to build in to the hillside is really amazing.

@olivetreeann I couldn't agree more. I guess labour was plentiful and cheap, and there were some pretty smart cookies around in those early days.

@merrelyn Certainly commanding the heights.

@onewing I'd reckon. Wonder how many workers died in the process.

@golftragic I shudder to think

@onewing Me too, I can't get my head around the notion of castes, especially where the 'lowest' cops all the scut jobs.
