Situated on a sandstone hill, it has been the administrative headquarters of the Tomars and witness to the rule of several dynasties. During the Revolt of 1857, it was under the control of Tantia Tope and Rani Lakshmibai for a brief period. Folklore says that it was built by King Suraj Sen on recommendation of sage Gwalipa. It offers panoramic view of the valley below. Way uphill, one can see statues of Jain Theerthankaras carved into rock faces. Son-et-Lumiere at the Man Mandir Palace gives you a glimpse into its glorious past. The fort’s façade glows with colours and offers a scintillating experience.
