Bala Quila, Alwar

3.1
#1 of 8 in Historic Sites in Alwar
Bala Quila hugs the hills on the eastern side of the city. This fort was built before the rise of the mighty Mughals, who used the structure as a base for their attacks on Ranthambhore. Be sure to get the permission to visit from the area's police superintendent--look for the office in the City Palace complex. Put Bala Quila into our Alwar travel route planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • It is situated on top of a hill. Visited on 14.01.18. Road trip is the main attraction. Nothing to see/ do inside the fort. A small courtyard in the fort has a temple.  more »

  • One of the best heritage place to visit nearby Delhi. This heritage place is on the top of the hill with a single way damaged motorable road. But still surrounding beauty and wild animals on road side will amaze you. I am dam sure this will creates some unforgettable memories for forevers.
  • Silent and calm place. Fort seems good but we get to know most of fort is not accessible to tourist but accessible to staff. They were doing party on the upper floor. If maintained properly this can become an important tourist attractions.
  • The fort is a must visit destination if you are going to Alwar. Its situated high(around 10km) ride from the main city. The city view from the top is awesome. However, sometimes the entry inside the fort is restricted(even during visiting hours). So the only option you are left is to enjoy the view. But definitely a must go to place.
  • The place was closed when we visited. But there is one point close to it on the hill side and it has awsome view of the city below. The places closes at 5 pm.
  • A good tourist site but we are not able to see inside of fort.
