The Ramnagar fort is on the opposite side from the ghats across the Ganges. It is about 8 kms away from the main city and can be easily reached through autos. The fort has a nominal entry fee and has a collection of few old cars and horse drawn carts of the British era. It has a healthy collection of... More

I honestly loved the fort which is located near the Ganga river on its eastern bank, which makes it even more beautiful people who love old precious things will definitely love the place

Ticket 150 rupees, no photo. Exposition in bad state, all dusty. Fort nothing special, more good looks outside. Mosques used as hindu temples.

Ramnagar fort is on the eastern bank of river Ganga (Ganges) and is a historical monument, though not so old. It was said to be built by the erstwhile Maharaja (king) of Benaras or Kashi (old names of Varanasi) in the year 1750. Only one part of the fort which houses the palace also is open to public and present... More

A marvelous fort, needs some help in upkeep, the museum has got some of the priceless collections but there is great need in maintenance. The cars and buggies are marvelous, sad to see dust gathering on them.

It takes about 40 to 45 minutes to reach this place from the ghats of Varanasi. The motr boat takes Rs1500 for a round trip. The boat ride to the fort is lovely but the fort itself was a disappointment. The approach to the fort is bad. We had to get off the boat near a very dusty area and... More

There is a museum of the Old Ruler kings. mostly the Armoury & some artifacts are exhibited.The buildings and Exhibits require renovation & Cleaning. Some of them are in bad state. Painful fact is that many people have spit on the walls near the Exhibits.More... More

Not quite easy to get to, this place has lost a lot of tis atmosphere with the building of a huge bridge running just above it. No effort of maintenance and presentation in the museum. Worth it only if you have some time to spare.

Lots to see but covered in dust like they don't care. No proper signage to explain exhibits. A little self respect please, clean the place up!

The highlight of the outing was the tuk tuk ride across the Ganges on an old but makeshift bridge on caissons with slat wood base sporadically covered by metal squares. Our driver was Houghly who each time he saw us after that day reminded us how good a charioteer he had been for us. The fort has some attractive architecture... More
