Moti Doongri Fort Attraction in Jaipur, India ¤ Hilltop Fort Attraction

Moti Doongri is a hilltop fort built like a Scottish castle and is today the residence of Rajmata (Queen Mother) Gayatri Devi. The place was previously a small fortress called Shankargarh (Shiva’s Foot) but was later altered by Sawai Man Singh II on the design of a Scottish castle. Later it was used as the venue for his innumerable parties attended by the top socialites of his times. The Ganesh Temple at the foot of the hill and the marvellous Birla Mandir are most notable for their works in marble.


¤ Birla Mandir or Lakshmi Narayan Temple

The Birlas, one of the major industrialist houses in India have dedicated shrines to Narayan (Lord Vishnu) and his consort Lakshmi (goddess of wealth) in several cities of India. The one in Jaipur is carved out of white marble and is one of the most magnificent structures built in recent times. It is also one of the most popular temples in the city and is gorgeously decorated on the occasion of Janmasthami, the birthday of Lord Krishna.
