Located in the arid regions of the Thar Desert in Rajasthan the Junagarh Fort is a precious gem of Indian architecture. It was built by the infamous Raja Rai Singh of Bikaner. He held a high position in the court of the Mughal Emperor Akbar and received huge sums of revenues through which he funded the fort’s construction. It started in 1589 and was completed by 1594. The Raja was extremely fond of art and architecture and as a result the fort is a hybrid of Rajasthani as well as Mughal style of architecture.

Over the course of generations renovations and additions were made making it an amalgamation of the best of Indian, Mughal and British styles. It has 7 gates and several pavilions with Hindu and Jain temples. It has 6 huge halls built for separate purposes from entertaining the guests to royal suppers to study and many more. The Anupmahal being one of the most beautiful of all, its ceilings inlaid with mirrors and Italian tiles and fine lattices. A must visit place indeed.

  • Beautiful place with huge historical significance.There are beautiful staircases, facades, towers and balconies. There are elaborately painted rooms and some exquisite furniture. Please carry sufficient water because water is not sufficient on the premises.

  • A really beautiful fort. A definite must visit... There is so much to know and so much to see. One would definitely lose oneself within the stories behind these walls!

  • Not a huge fort if one compares it to those Jodhpur/Jaipur, but the culture is clearly visible... Suitable time to visit is in the afternoon... Parking and toilet facilities available. Has a fort-museum nearby..... The intricate designs and the lavishness if erstwhile occupants of the palace is seen everywhere...
