Inspirock Rating:
4.6/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web
Junagarh Fort features palaces, pavilions, and shrines erected in a mix of architectural styles, with the earliest ones dating back to about the 16th century. Enter through a gate made of yellow sandstone and flanked with two guardian elephant statues made of red stone. The fort boasts six additional gates, marble courtyards, wells, gardens, an old jail, galleries, and corridors. Successive rulers built their own sets of lavishly decorated chambers, the interiors of which stood in stark contrast to the medieval military architecture. At the onsite museum, see royal costumes, historic portraits, Sanskrit and Persian manuscripts, arms, and idols. The most notable feature of the whole complex, however, remain the intricate carvings in red and yellow stone.

  • This beautiful Fort located in Bikaner in Rajasthan and strangely not on a Hill but in the city, surrounded by a large moat. Hits for the grandeur of the building in the classical Indian style. Internally the rooms are richly decorated in all sides by marble, mirrors, stucco and bright colors. The throne room, there are numerous carriages belonging to the Maharaja, also a rocking chair in gold lacquered, in short an opulence of wealth. Nice large room. of arms where there is also a plane donated by the British to the Maharaja. It's a wonder walk the corridors that connect the various rooms and pass through the inner courtyards, thinking about the past and identify with those past times, great charm! It is definitely a must not to be missed in the India trip in the beautiful region of Rajasthan. Its definitely worth it.

  • The fort is so beautiful, that it seemed to be an art gallery to me. Amazing piece of architecture, superb painting s and carvings. Its a must visit in Bikaner. 
  • This place is really cool, lots of tourists and a handful of forigners. Good history all the way through especially at the end. You can pay an extra 50 rupees to see the museum, it isn't that great there, but for 50rupees you can't complain. Met some nice people there, staff where nice too
