The gallery exhibits the miniature but exact representations, of the renowned forts of Rajasthan, in thermocol, with light system as much similar to that of the original one.

The spectacular forts are almost inaccessible, many stand in abandoned splendour with their famous guns, too large to remove or melt down still in place directed towards a forgotten enemy. 

Ranthambhor :
Standing on an isolated rocky plateau, its haunted ruins half–conceited amongst thick jungle and dead silver trees.

Govinda the son of Chouhan emperor Prithviraj Chauhan III, took their place from a branch of Jadon Rajputs in 1192 AD, from there the fort reached its peak of fame during the reign of the powerful Rao Hamir Dev, who held it strongly till 1301 AD.

The fort’s mostly thirteenth century crenellated walls and bastions rise sheer, access to them is by the north-east face of Ranthambhor’s crag, 700 feet above the plain overhanging cliffs, jagged rocks dense forests, form natural obstacles to which Ranthambohor’s rulers added their own.

If you visit the museum, I am sure you can witness the grandeur at one place in this gallery of the grand museum, and wonder upon the royal exuberant beauty and charm which exists in Rajasthan.

Jaigarh :
The model is a miniature representation of the full fledged citadel, built in the year 1726 AD by Sawai Jai Singh to bolster the defence of the area.

The architecture makes clear intentions of using the fort purely as a military structure.

To the right side of the fort, model you’ll come across ‘Jaivana’ world’s largest cannon on wheels, which some historians opine, that it was fired only once.

The water channels are another striking feature which are a part of rainwater harvesting system.

Junagarh :
Rare example of a medieval period monument, this magnificent fort was built in 1588 AD by Raja Rai Singh of Bikaner, one of the most trusted generals of Emperor Akbar.

Although built on lower grounds, highly in contrast with forts built on higher plains, to enhance their defensive characteristics, it could never by conquer.  

The fort houses beautiful palaces inside like Anoop Mahal, Badal Mahal, Phool Mahal etc.

Mehrangarh :
The1459 AD construction Mehrangarh perches high, like an eyrie, on its rocky outcrop it eastern towers and bastions stand out like though sinews gleaming with a copper tinge where the rock itself was hewn to form the walls and ramparts.

Like all the most spectacular palaces of the Rajputs constrained by existing fortifications, Jodhpur provides a picturesque contrast between the exigencies of defence and the flamboyance of prosperous peace.

Chittorgath :
The specimen, speaks its history itself and sometimes a still silence hangs over the deserted pavilions and rained temple of Chittorgarh.

Witness of three ‘Sakas’ (Warriors carrying death) and ‘Jauhar’ (princess accepting death than dishonour) in 1303 AD, 1534 AD and 1567 AD, the model in the gallery highlights the victory tower and Kalihka temple.
