Sheesh Mahal in the Mehrangarh Fort of Jodhpur is a characteristic feature of the royal Rajput architecture. Known as the Glass Palace of Jodhpur, this marvellous piece of historic architecture is decked from ceiling to floor with fanciful mirror work.
Sheesh Mahal was the bedchamber of Maharaja Ajit Singh who reigned over Jodhpur between 1679 and 1724 !!!! This beautiful room is a pleasing juxtaposition of superimposed mirror works and bright paintings of various religious figures across the walls. The numerous decorative panels show deities like Lord Brahma, Lord Shiva and Parvati, Lord Krishna playing the flute, Lord Rama among others showing the strong influence of religion and culture on the art of the time.
