“Thoroughly enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

This fort is in a stunning hillside setting. The entrance fee included an audio guide which we did not use. Some parts of the fort are incredible to look at and is a maze of stairwells, passages and rooms. It is well worth a visit although is maybe more spectacular from the outside

“One of the best Monuments/Forts in India.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

A must visit for anyone visiting Jodhpur. This fort is breathtakingly beautiful. The exquisite carvings, the perfect layout of facilities and approach to visitors, cleanliness impress you. The Fort has a long history and taking a guide is recommended.

The “Blue City” is a joyous watch from the towers and one can see the Jaswant Thada from the high roof top of the Fort. There are many rooms that are decorated with real gold, semi-precious stones, Belgian glass or simply amazing carvings. You’ll see Akbar’s sword amongst many other armours and weapons.

Good to see a well maintained fort with a long proud history. Certainly one of the best in India.
