Tales Fort told – CAK11

Continues fro Part 10

I am giving the waves of the Konkan coast a break 🙂  and hence the theme for today’s post is Fort Architecture – specially arches,doorways,windows and passages etc.

 Ancient Forts always fascinate me. They might be in ruins now but history tells us that these forts were the settings for court intrigues,royal coups,siege,treachery, etc. etc.

And they hold secrets and stories yet to be decoded and discovered by us..

Archescak1110

Was this the room where the King used to plan his next campaign? …or…

Archescak1102

was it this one?

Archescak1103

Can’t you hear the footsteps of the assassin?

Archescak1105

And was this Granary solely used to store wheat and rice or did they (secretly) also stash cannon balls?

Archescak1106

Was this the passage used by spies or…courtesans? 

Archescak1107

Can a royal elephant with it’s mahout pass through this door?

Archescak1109

How many sentries used to be posted here?

Archescak1113

Did they physically frisk women in those days? or did they have women guards?

Archescak1111

Is this really just a room with a view or was this the place from where traitors were made to jump?

Archescak1121

For Special invitees only?

Yes, these walls have stories to tell for those who are willing to listen…
