This is one place that really captured my fancy. Not only was I wowed by the architecture, as I was with the other sites we've visited prior to this, but this is the only time I was able to feel the romance of the structure. I was able to imagine myself living in 1700 India. I was enchanted by everything. I look left and right and I can feel a novel coming, but of course I cannot write. But if I could it would be a bestseller, given the overwhelming inspiration that this fortress has given me. In short I fell in love with this fortress.
