“Solid Fort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

Ranthambore Fort, situated within the National Park near Sawai Madhopur town in Rajsthan, India, is formidable. Quite tiresome path way to go up. Was built some time in 9th or 10th century, taken over by Emperor Akbar in 15th-16th century. The fort is some 700 ft. above ground level and covers a very big area. This fort has a Jain Temple, Lord Ganesh Temple, and many monuments.The Palace inside is closed for visitors. A big lake is seen below the fort, and a big stream is flowing . Monkeys around, but do not be afraid. Give something to eat and they will go away.

“Amazing fort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

Ranthambore fort is built on the cliffs in the middle of tiger country. It is well worth visiting although it is quite a climb. Take plenty of water especially in the heat of the day. The views of the park are awesome.

“a great fort..lots to explore..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2012

visited this fort in the month of march. still not very hot and to an Indian extent, comfortable weather. the road that leads to the fort entrance is narrow and driving is slow. private cars are allowed without a charge upto the gate. there is no entry fee!!! hiring a guide is strongly recommended and they usually ask about Rs 300/ (about $6). its quite a walk upto the top, so take lots of water and energy. you can get a lady selling bottled water and also unbottled water for free.
guide will explain the details starting from the entrance gate. do visit the places where the court used to be which is a little bit of walk at the far side of the pond. this place is very secluded and quiet and nice to sit and have a chat with friends. the main palace where the Kings used to live was closed, probably due to repairs. there is a nice garden in front of it.
washrooms are provided at junctions, but hardly any other facility. no wheelchair access on the steps.
