What was once a ruined fort dating back to the 14th century has now been turned into a heritage hotel. The fort is perched on a large rock and boasts a splendid layout and design. With robust walls running around, it is mostly made of granite and has numerous pillars supporting it. Everything about this structure is large and spacious-- halls, windows, roof and verandahs. It can house more than 100 people and from here one can get a beautiful view of the city. Keeping in mind its historical significance, the fort has been declared a heritage site by the Government of India.

Today, a lavish hotel, visitors can come here to explore nature and get a feeling of how royals of the past lived. The Sariska Wildlife Sanctuary nearby is a great spot to visit.

It is believed that the fort was built by the Yaduvanshis (the descendants of Lord Krishna). It was initially captured by the Mughals, followed by the Jats before it came into the hands of the Rajputs in 1775. It assumed prime importance under the ruler Ranawat Thakur, Bhawani Singh (1882-1934).
