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.

    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.

    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.
