The Garden Landscape Guide

Meherangarh Fort

Though it has internal courts and some greenspace, the fort does not have space one would normally describe as gardens. The hilltop location is too exposed and too short of water. But from the ramparts of the fort one has an excellent view of the 'blue city's' roof tops and small domestic courts. Amongst the reasons for painting so many of the houses lilac blue were its association with the priestly caste (Brahmins) and its reputation for discouraging mosquitos. The palace is planned on a comparable basis to the town's private havelis - with deep courtyards to provide shade and high level terraces (often roofs) for use in the evening and night.
