Jaipur, Sep 2: A portion of the wall of about a thousand-year-old fort in Rajasthan’s Jaisalmer town has collapsed but there were no injuries, police said Friday.
The incident happened Thursday around 6 p.m. near Gopa Chowk area, about 600 km from here.
‘The wall was already in a dilapidated state and recent rains caused further damage,’ a police officer told IANS.
As the wall came crashing down, owners of nearby shops ran for safety, the officer said. A portion of another wall in the fort had collapsed Aug 14.
Known as the ‘Golden Fort’, it was built in 1156 A.D. by the Bhati Rajput ruler Rawal Jaisal.
