A historical place and the only living fort I have experienced. It's a mini city inside with 4000 plus people residing there. One of a kind experience and a must visit. There is a nice Jain Temple inside which you should definitely visit. They will charge around 50 bucks for mobile phones/cameras. Do bring along your phones/cameras as the temple is very beautiful
This is a living fort, people staying here have set up shops and sell merchandise like souvenirs, lockets. The palace is large, but not as massive as it seems from outside. The architecture and fine working on the walls are praiseworthy. There is an especially beautiful and magnificent Jain temple inside the fort. Take a local guide, he will share some fun facts which you won't be able to hear outside and he will force you to take pics from great angles. Overall good to visit.
The Deserted City of Rajasthan and India. Known for its Golden Architectural Buildings and Monuments, The City looks Eye-Catching, permeating Golden Sands and Houses. The Main Revenue comes through Tourism and Golden Rock Trading Business. The population is very less compared to other Cities, but has a Good Culture akin to other parts of the state. A Wonderful Tourist Spot but Susceptible to Extremely Hot temperatures.
Highly recommended just for a glimpse of the mock-up of the street with the rickshaw - really, really authentic and that was not so long ago. Many other interesting exhibits but only a twisted mind would ban the shutterbug from springing into action. While you wander around the manicured lawns just pause to reflect on the financial source to build this pleasing structure.
Just superb... Amazing architectural building... One of the biggest fort of India... A must visit place.... If u r really interested in ancient history, u will need at least two to three hrs to explore it in detail... And exploring in detail is worth....very neatly maintained....for photography we need to take tickets ...entry tickets r also required
