Bala Quila, Alwar

#1 of 12 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.

  • Even though the whole palace except the square is closed for restoration (who knows when that will start), we got lucky somehow to enter and visit the whole palace. I must say, a beauuuutiful one. Ver...  more »
  • Wonderful Fort. But not many people visit here. The Fort is too not at all maintained. The view of the hills n Valley from the top of Fort is magnificent. Renovations n publicity required to have it on the itinerary. Away from crowd one can explore here in complete solitude. A photographers paradise.
  • Bala Quila also known Alwar fort is a fort in Alwar(Rajasthan). The hill has so very nice view and they charge 40 rupees as an entry fees. Hill closes by 6:00 PM, entry will.not allowed after that. Hill has a very nice city view point. You can see a lot of birds, deer and other animals. They have animal safari but you will hardly find tiger or lion.
  • Honestly.....a truly magical fort that looks over the city of Alwar from every angle.....I really loved it ....but what breaks my heart is they could do so much more with it.....opening a nice coffee shop and a good cleaning and restoration would make this site great.....I loved the inspired views of the city and intricate courtyards and imposing yet intimate can almost imagine the soldiers back in the day walking through the rooms..... there is an unusual quirk in the forts outer walls.....they appear to have built an imposing gate....very nice....impressive.....gate.....but there is no road leading up to it.....i assume it is too steep and there is no road on the forts side either.....and expensive gate to nowhere.....i loved this quirk.....the fort is closed off to the public apparently but they let everyone sneak I managed to see all....I do believe this site belongs to the people of Alwar and should be open to all.
  • The drive to this place is superb. Parts of this mini fort are closed so to take a view of Alwar one has to head to the forests near by. The outer fortifications of this monument are elaborate and one must stop their to admire them.
  • Super view from the top. But recently it is closed for 2 months. Behind it there is a place named as suicide point is also good to see.
