Mehrangarh, located in Jodhpur, Rajasthan, is one of the largest forts in India. Built in around 1459 by Rao Jodha, the fort is situated 410 feet (125 m) above the city and is enclosed by imposing thick walls. Inside its boundaries there are several palaces known for their intricate carvings and expansive courtyards. A winding road leads to and from the city below. The imprints of the impact of cannonballs fired by attacking armies of Jaipur can still be seen on the second gate. To the left of the fort is the chhatri of Kirat Singh Soda, a soldier who fell on the spot defending Mehrangarh.
After two really exhausting days of hiking, we arrived in a small village, where we stayed at the mayors house. He told us that we are the first people that came to visit in more then a year and that only nine tourists, including us came in the last five years. There I took that picture of this old chin lady.
In earlier times the girls in this area of Myanmar, got tattoos in there faces when they were quite young. Every tribe of the chin state have a different face tattoo style. There are plenty reasons why they did that. One is to make them ugly for other people, another one is that people can see wich tribe they belong to.
Luckily this cruel ritual is forbidden nowadays by the government. •
