We hired a guide, so the story of the fort was interesting. Another fort lying in ruins, poorly preserved by our Archaelogical Society. The Muslim rulers destroyed the rich heritage of this fort and further destruction was caused by Indian. I won't reveal the story... It has lot of langurs, so take care of eatables. The shiv temple is interesting.... More

I had a lot of fun visiting this fort. I only had 2 hours to visit it and I found that it wasn't enough. There are some beautiful parrots on the way and a lot of interesting areas to visit. It wasn't crowded at all.

Ranthambore fort is a centuries old fort built inside the Ranthambore National Park in Sawai Madhepur city. Most of the buildings and structures inside are in ruins. Surprisingly this fort is not well maintained considering other forts in Rajasthan. Worth taking a visit if you are in Sawai Madhepur. Pros: 1. Location is inside the Ranthambore National park - around... More

The fort is about half an hour's drive from the town and is definitely worth a visit. The drive for a couple of kilometers near the fort entrance is quite good. Once at the fort, its best to buy some water near the parking area before you go in as you wont be able to get anything inside. The fort... More

The Ranthambore Fort is a Historic site and there is a lot of renovation and restoration happening within the fort. Services of Guides are available for those opting for it. You have to climb a number of steps to reach the top.

Lots of steps and the view at the top is O.K. Compared to most forts we saw whilst in Northern India this was not really worth the effort.
