Kankwari fort was used by Mughal emperor Aurangzeb to imprison his brother Dara Shikoh in 17th century. This has been always the selling point to popularise this fort. Another known fact is that the fort was built by Raja Jai Singh I of Amber who was a senior general in Aurangzeb’s army and grandson of Raja Man Singh, one of the nine jewels of Akbar’s court. fort is located right deep inside the Sariska National Park and Tiger Reserve. Its alone on a hillock in the middle of the jungle, with just a handful of families to its company, who live in the Kankwari village at the base of the hillock. Obviously, the fort is located in an area with no other human access, this being a protected forest in reins of a Tiger Reserve. Going there is tough as you hardly get a proper guidance and direction to move into the restricted forest. Only way to reach Kankwari fort is through a safari in tiger reserve. One has to pay full safari fees and the guide fees for that. To reach the fort, you have to pass through safari zone 2 of the reserve. Since you have to take a safari to go to the fort, you can only enter the jungle, hence the fort on designated safari timings, i.e. 7 am to 10 am and then 2.30 pm to 5.30 pm. These are the times to enter and exit the jungle, so one has to reach the fort, see it and come back to the exit gate- all in three hours. Its a tough task because of the distance of the fort from the entry gate, which is around 25 kms of tough bumpy jungle track. SO, considering the time strain it is not possible to see animals and fort, in single safari. But you can still be lucky to see plenty of wildlife on the way, as one passes through the thick of the wild.

You can reach there via jeep, its a little known place but you can not go inside as the gates are closed, but birding around the area is good.

Book a safari and visit the fort for a half day. It's a ruin of Mughal architecture. On the way as well as around the fort , you will see a lot of wildlife. Don't venture inside forest on foot as you are inside tiger territory.

This is a treasure hidden inside the Sariska forest. You can book a gypsy to this fort only from the forest authorities, booking not available online. The trip will be almost a half day tour. The fort has a very good Mughal history.

It will take approx. 60-70 minutes to reach from the Safari Start point. However, when we visited the fort gates were closed and we could only see the fort from outside.
