What travelers are saying
- Went to sariska national park in october 23 in the evening safari. We went with guide Shyam Sundar (91660 01735). He's the best Guide possible, knows all good routes and zones and is always the first one to spot tigers in the park. He is also very knowledgeable about
the jungle. Just close your eyes and contact Shyam if you are visiting Sariska!Written October 11, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Just 15/18 Kms from Alwar city is this beautiful natural lake surrounded by Aravalli hills that provide the water runoff to keep it filled. It is supposed to have crocodiles, and the birds are plentiful and beautiful. You can also see Sambhar deer in the hills surrounding the lake. The boating access is from a so called Lake Palace (RTDC hotel, in very bad shape). They charge a cover charge of Rs 100 or so per person to visit the "dirty" Palace and another Rs 800 or so for a short motor ride in a boat. The lake ha s a couple of nice hotels on the road parallel to the palace. The views are beautiful. Take a drive around to find more options for food and relaxing spots.Written December 31, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Place is surrounded by high mountains, green forest, lake in the vicinity of temple. Reaching the area is big herculean task thorugh bad tracks. Place is also used by Army for climbing the rocks and tactical exercises. Small waterfall and rivulets were seen emerging from high rocks. The path is very rocky and so be careful while walking. Also take blessings of Lord Shiva in the 18th century temple. It is approximately 18 Km from Sariska.Written February 19, 2020
- Visited in Nov'21. The fort is situated in Sariska Reserve Buffer Zone and closed till 2023 for renovation. Personal vehicles are allowed inside subject to payment of a nominal fee. However food packets had to be deposited at entry gate due to park rules. The half n hour uphill forest drive upto Fort gate & nearby temple is beautiful but visitors can go only upto Fort's gate and 1st courtyard as the rest is closed.
There is a gypsy safari also but gypsies are limited and wait time is around 1 to 1.5 hours for the gypsies to return from their trip. So visitors planning gypsy ride should reach early. Parking space is sufficient at entry gate for those who want a gypsy ride.
Attached info in pics for reference. Rated 3 star (average) as it was compulsory to post a rating.
Visitors may visit for a fun gypsy ride through the buffer forests and upto the Fort.Written December 13, 2021
- this fort has been beautifully maintained and hiring a guide is a must to know about our historical heritageWritten June 5, 2022
- On the top floor of the city palace is the museum with a good collection of artifacts from the royals who ruled the area. There is also a collection of Mughul weaponry, Iranian swords , British muskets and guns and other religious artifacts found in excavations. It is a bit jumbled up but a nice visit nevertheless. Unfortunately the City Palace is being used as a Courthouse and govt building so things are all messed up w.r.t access and boundaries.Written December 31, 2022
- This could make a great attraction one day but right now it is boarded up, you can't go inside, some whole rooms and walls have collapsed and it is being occupied by a family and their goats and cows. You can walk around the exterior, see beautiful local views, peep through windows into empty rooms. You can visit the temple. It has some amazing ceiling fans which look like they have melted in the heat like a Dali surrealist painting. The tower is too decayed to climb. The courtyard has some fascinating old carriages but they are inhabited by birds and goats too. Took some fabulous photos of decay.Written February 3, 2019
