  • Worth a visit in or just after the Monsoon season. Extremely green and beautiful region in that time. The fort is worth exploring for 1-2 hours.
  • Well it isn't scary at all when you have some ghost alike friends. Felt some energy while taking pictures. Automatically got collaged when I shot a pic by front camera on entrance. Thought it was just a mare. but it Happened twice 😨 Got some pixels on photo like it does when there is no cable on TV. But we were just happy that we made it as it was in wishlist for a long time. At night when we was driving back to our town, two Friends in back seat were started to Google about the place and played scary videos about it. And my mind got very eliminated on driving I gave them my peace of mind 😒😂😂 & why not😉 hell yeah also it was raining. And lights bulb were not on road. The HID BULB were shining on others trucks not on road as installed unprofessionally. But Some how we made it to 200km in night and and rested for next 260km at a petrol pump.
  • A walk through the broken market area is wonderful in itself. The fort is spectacular ruin if a little crowded with people sometimes. Thousands of bats live here and it closes before 6. I don't know how to stay there at night (when apparently the ghosts come out) but there are spectacular gardens a dirty bowali and beautiful building there during the day.
  • Love it..!! Simply awesome..!! People says that the place is haunted but i love to be there.. Its too beautiful place.. Old is gold.. And the broken market streets, houses, temples and the fort are so attractive.. N the carvings over there are so beautifully done..
  • Historical ruins. Nice scenic view all round. Much greener in view that it is in Rajasthan. Famous for being most haunted. Covered areas inside the fort are disgustingly smelly. Illegal people forcing to pay parking fees unlawfully, ASI should take notice and act.
