The Jaigarh Fort sits atop a hill that overlooks Jaipur. In the past, it was a safe haven with a direct underground tunnel from the Amber Fort which sits below in its shadow. Should Amber have ever fallen to attack, its residents could make their getaway...

Siem Reap, Cambodia: A walking tour of Angkor Wat
