Tijara is a historic town situated 48 kms North East of Alwar. Its old name was Trigartpur. It was the capital of the Mewat and has a long and glorious history of bravery and sacrifice. There is a popular Jain temple, visited by lakhs of pilgrims every year.

Tijara fort situated on the crest of a hill has been famous for the excavation of hidden treasure recently. It houses Rani Moosi ka Mehal, who was queen of King Bakhtawar Singh and committed sati (self immolation of a widow on her husband’s funeral pyre) on his death.

Agree with Mayuri.. reminds one of Rang de Basanti.. I would've expected a stitch of four photos to be much longer.. did you take each 'vertically'.. just saw the high-res version.. the palace/fort in the distance is simply fab!!!

Awesome. Gives me a feeling of some muted pain and nostalgia... ruins always do. But usually it's difficult for a photograph to give me that feeling. This one does.
