Fort Chanwa Luni, Jodhpur
Fort Chanwa of Luni is an exceptional example of elegance and symmetry in
Indian architecture of the last century. The entire fortress is carved out
of the famous red sandstone of Jodhpur and with its ornately carved lattice
work friezes and intricate "Jharokas", it exquisitely captures the
romance and grace of a bygone age. The fort is composed of a lyrical complex
of courtyards towers, water, wheels, stables, passages and unexpected
stairways to secret pavilions and panoramic roof tops spanning the village
below and the Thar horizon beyond.
The traditional paintings on the walls harmoniously reflect the skill of
the master craftsmen and the bygone days. The village of Luni nestles in the
shadow of the Fort walls and is a hub of activity with its many artisans
fashioning metal, clay or wood into intricate forms and demonstrating the
skills passed down over the centuries by their ancestors.
The Fort has been beautifully restored to its former glory by its owners
Maharaj Dalip Singhji, the youngest son of H.H Maharaja Umaid Singhji and
his wife Rani Madhu. Fort chanwas's courtyards are peaceful havens where
guests can unwind for the day and spend the afternoons leisurely reading or
relaxing in the sun. There is a beautiful pool to cool off fatigue and
refresh oneself. The fort has a bar which is well-stocked to suit different
tastes and an evening bazaar to pick up gifts and nick-nacks. The guests can
enjoy their meals as well as witness local dances at the same time and get
the true taste of Indian hospitality and culture.

attitude of Rajputs.
Maharaja Jaswant Singh II Ruler of Jodhpur Marwar from 1876-1895 A.D is
remembered as the benign Monarch who steered the administration and economy
of Marwar away from chaos and instability to a period of sustained
development and security and justice for all. Amongst the prominent civil
servants in this Ruler's coterie of administrators, was a young Charan by
the name of Kaviraj Muraridanji. In 1894 Kaviraj Muraridanji received in
Jagir the little known hamlet of Chanwa. There he build an exquisite little
fortress Palace today known as Fort Chanwa.
