A Lovely Small Fortress Palace

This charming little fortress sits prominently atop a hill at Anjana village, near Deogarh, Rajasthan, India. I fell in love with it when we visited there in 2002. Abandoned at the time, it could be seen from far away, dominating the area visually. I was told by a local Rajput noble that one reason no one lived there any more was that it had a curse of sorts placed on it, in that no persons could share a bed in it.
