Fort Chanwa of Luni is an exceptional example of elegance and symmetry in Indian architecture of the last century. The entire fortress is carved out of the famous red sandstone of Jodhpur and with its ornately carved latticework friezes and intricate "Jharokas"; it exquisitely captures the romance and grace of a bygone age. The fort is composed of a lyrical complex of courtyards towers, water, wheels, stables, passages and unexpected stairways to secret pavilions and panoramic roof tops spanning the village below and the Thar horizon beyond.

The village elders solemnly reflect the changing times under the shady trees, while the children enjoy running around the narrow carefree streets. The women, swaying in their brilliant Rajasthani colors go about their daily chores to give water and sustenance to the village. A night all is quiet in Luni village and the fort, with its huge gates and protective walls stands proud and strong under the spectacular canopy of stars. Peace spreads out across the desert past the near by Luni River bed and to the city of Jodhpur 35 kilometers away.
