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.

  • Awesome fort .. a remarkable history​ is with this fort.. not so well maintained but it will be renovated soon.. beautiful view from the roof top.. must visit
  • Bala quila is 30 min drive from alwar. It is on top of the hill and you will enjoy the way till fort and may see any wild animal too, if lucky.
  • The road to Quilla is better than the Quilla itself, saw so many peacocks and pehen and the views were awesome. Most of the entrances of Quilla were not opened, so we were left with the veranda type of area to see.
  • Peaceful, relaxed and internal bliss are the few words which can describe this place. This place is situated on one the mountain of Aravali mountain series in Alwar. From where you see whole Alwar. On the way to this fort you can natural beauty and wild animals.
  • Not maintained at all. Walls are all written/scribbled over. Seems to have been left alone. But a very good/scenic drive up to the top of the hill where it's located. City view from the top is good.
