Carved out of red sandstone of Jodhpur, the fort offers a panoramic view of the village below and the Thar horizon beyond. The village of Luni nestles in the shadow of the Fort wall and is the hub of activity with its many artisans fashioning metal, clay or wood into intricate forms, adept at the skills passed down the centuries by their ancestors. The women, dressed in brilliant Rajasthani colors, go about their daily chores.
At night the Fort, with its huge gates and protective wall, stands proud and strong under a spectacular canopy of stars.
The Fort has been beautifully resorted to its pristine glory by its owners Rani Madhu and Maharaj Dalip Singh, the youngest son of HH Maharaja Umaid Singh of Jodhpur. Each room has been created and decorated with its own particular charm. The courtyards, verandas and gardens create a bewitching ambience.
