Bala Quila, Alwar

3.0
#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.

  • The place has some spots from where you can enjoy the view. Approach road to the place is really nice for bike ride or car, you will enjoy it. However, if you are looking for a majestic and royal feeling at the place then it will be an disappointment as the fort is really small. If you would have visited fort like Red Fort in Delhi and Agra, you would not like this place at all.
  • 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.
  • Hasn't been maintained. The intricate floral work on the edge of balconies are being replaced by slabs of concrete even though Alwar is full of stone workers. Floors covered with decades of accumulated dirt. Walls covered with graffiti of ignorant couples trying to immortalize their fleeting flings. Some of the rooms have been converted to trash bins, filled with plastic refuse. The government has ignored this historical site completely. Don't visit, don't pay to visit, boycott.
  • Old fort, but restricted to visit all areas It is top of the city Alwar. You can reach there by CAR or by walk of 1 hour through Hilly walk path. It is good place from inside, you can see one Traditional War Tank inside the fort with one temple.The building is abandoned and extremely dirty. It's a pity because it's a cultural heritage. Very neglected. Even though I would recommend to go if in Alwar because the view over the city is breathtaking as well as the way you have to ride up to reach the building. Bad thing is: Only WAR TANK & Temple is accessible for us, remaining part which are interesting are not allowed to visit. I must say, a beautiful one. Very very impressive. Hope it will open soon for public and the restoration will not overwhelm the originality.
  • Bala Quila also known Alwar fort is a fort in Alwar(Rajasthan). You have to walk to approx half or 1 km near the hill to have nice full city View. Most part of the Fort is occupied by Police and people are not allowed to visit. Only you can see one Tank part.
