Much later, Queen Elizabeth II and Duke of Edinburgh were part of the Royal Hunting, who stayed here too. It’s a unique Rajput Fort.

An interesting aspect is the arrival of Lord Ganesha’s mail from his devotees, which is a daily feature and requires the services of a postman who brings up sacks full of it to the temple.
