Poor cousins of Amby, both were sharing one garage.
Morris, Tiger/Minor , UK.
Chevy Truck , 1946, USA.
Ford, jeep, 1942 , USA.
Need help here. Was Jeep ever under Ford? Or is it just jeep?
Vauxhall, it seems to have a sunroof too.
Coming up next - Fortified Kumbhalgarh and marble-ous Ranakpur

Before starting on Kumbalgarh, some pics from Shilpgram fair.
Puppet show. One of the most amusing puppet show of my life.
On day two in Udaipur we decide to visit Kumbalgarh and Ranakpur. They are more than 50 kms from Udaipur so we decide to take our car. We leave by 9 AM, feeling jittery by the thought of driving through the narrow lanes. But it required only one reverse. There seems to be some kind of tacit understanding amongst drivers.
Our friend here needs help, just as we touch the highway.
It seems royally confused

View of the fort from outside. Walls are all you can see. The fort is now maintained by ASI.
Picture of a temple as you enter the gate. Inside the fortified walls there are many temples. It seems most of the construction happened in 2 phase, in different generations. If I remember correctly a few of the Jain temples belong to the era much before king Kumbha
Another of the temples.
Kumbhalgarh fort has perimeter walls that extend 36 kilometers in length, which makes it the third longest in the world after the Great Wall of China and the Great Wall of Gorgan in Iran (wikipedia). Although in a restaurant, I did read that it is 2nd longest in the world. I guess Iran does not count.
A view of the wall. It is easily over 10 feet wide. Notice the wall on the far end of the hill.
Don’t recall this. I guess the other side of it houses the kitchen etc.

Badal Mahal (cloud palace) which is on the left after entering, is the newest construction in the whole fort. It is a bit of a climb before you reach it.
