“Probably the best fort in India...”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

and for a country full of forts, that's a mighty achievement! I love it becuase it is living... people live and work here so you see people going about their daily business, local kids playing cricket. It's full of haveli's all immacutely looked after. The jain temples within the fort are just incredible too.

“A Place to be in Spare Time”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

The Fort is under restoration currently and is likely to ready for tourists in the coming season. The markets around are interesting including some local village craft, leather goods, ladies Lakh bangles and some street food in variety of restaurants at walkable distance. Was glad to see two ATS of State Bank of India and ICICI Bank.
