  • Old fort of Alwar attributed to the 14th Century. Contains a 19th Century mahal, part of which is used by the district police as office area. Sadly the place is poorly maintained with some of the elegant spires disfigured by radio receiver antennae and communication and electric cables.
  • It is small glorious fort in 300 meter height. It was built in 1400. Fort has glorious art and architecture. My first trip in Alwar Bala Quila also known Alwar fort is a fort in Alwar in Indian state of Rajasthan. [1] It is situated on a hill in the Aravalli Range, above the town of Alwar.[2] The fort is 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) long and is about 1.5 kilometres (0.93 mi) wide. It was built by Hasan Khan Mewati in 16th century. In the following centuries it went the Mughals, Marathas, the Jats and last to the Kachwaha Rajputs.[3]
  • Awesome scenery, less crowded, peace, explore, peacock and deers. Though inside of fort really bad smell due to lack of cleanness.
  • a smallish fort in alwar, rajasthan .. in a dilapidated state with the ceiling falling in .. and plants growing in the pillars .. however it is still a must visit especially in the monsoon season. One can see the rampart stretching for a long distance into the green rolling hills, while the height of the fort provides the perfect natural cool breeze
  • Too much neglence by local bodies, can be made cared much better and serve a better place to visit.
