While we humans are social and seek Partners or company, birds and animals too need company ,equally.

Seen above in the picture, a pair of pigeon in front of the  world famous UNESCO World Heritage site -Amer Fort. You can spot a large number of pigeons on the pavement near Maota lake in front of the Amer Fort, as many people scatter pigeon feed or grains for the pigeons.

Another thing, do you know that Amer Fort and Jaigarh Fort (seen above behind the Amer Fort) acted as support system for each other? Partners” !! Amer Fort or Palace (as some people prefer to call it)  was a residential quarter while Jaigarh Fort  towering over the Amer fort on a hill above, extended  security to the Amer Fort & town. Incidentally, Jaigarh Fort boasts of World’s largest Canon and one of India’s first canon making foundry!!

Partner…essential for survival. what do you think?

  1. Lovely Pictures as usual arv! What caught my attention was the pair of pigeons, yes they always can be seen in pairs! Also the state of neglect of world heritage sites! Did you notice the condition of the wall and lack of landscaping?

    1. It’s true that UNESCO world heritage sites require much more care than they are currently extended. I will give Amer palace 80 out of 100 when it comes to upkeep. Water seepage and dampness seem to be an issue as pointed out by you. Given the fact that it’s made with old world technology finding materials and labour using them today is difficult. this is something that I came across when I spoke with some people. I’m sure Amer won’t have those kind of issues though. There are other issues which need to be highlighted too. some other day. 🙂
      Thanks for appreciating Balroop! 🙂
