“An interesting fort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

One can either take an audio guide or join a small group with a guide. I joined a group and was the only English speaker. Even though the guide came to me at each exhibit and translated for me. He had a good sense of humour. Some interesting displays and an enjoyable afternoon visiting this fort.

“One of the many palaces of Rajasthan”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

It is like any other palaces in Rajasthan. Rajasthan really has nice palaces and you can make out the different dynasties that ruled over the years from the different architecture. Worth visiting once.

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Wonderful inlay work all through this fort and some really beautiful objects to be found. Like all the forts and palaces, there is a curious mix of architectural styles which make them all the more interesting. The throne room is pretty impressive.

“Enjoyable.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Enjoyable. The audio guide was good but a bit confusing to use. Toilet facilities here are atrocious for a tourist property.

“A nice fort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Positives:
The fort was neat. The guides were staff of the fort and did not need separate fee.

Negatives:
Since there was no dedicated guide, a group of us had to travel along with the one guide. This was some sort of invasion into privacy
