  • This place is where cenotaphs are made for the Brahmins. Since it is situated on a small hillock you get open to desert view towards West which is why this is an excellent place for enjoying sunsets.  more »
  • Cenotaph with banks to see the sunset. The city is seen from the top and you can see how the sunset bathes the walls of the fortress. Very close to the city by what you hear the hustle and bustle of the same.
