  • Achalgarh Fort is nothing except Lord Shiva Temple. Best to Visit in good weather. If you are trekking lovers , then you loved it. More age people should avoid because of so many stairs. 
  • The temple of mahadev is good to see because of its history , it is said this area is situated om mahadev toe and another thing two very beautiful idols of crystals are in temple one of Shree bhairav ...  more »
  • The fort is in shambles. There is nothing much to see. An old Lord Shiva temple is there. Besides a market run by locales. Avoid eating from there, its not hygienic.

  • The small village of Achalgarh is known for the massive Achalgarh Fort which was built by Rana Kumbha of the Mewar dynasty. The fort encloses numerous temples such as the Kantinath temple built in 16th century and the 15th century Achaleswar Mahadev Temple. The Achaleshwar Mahadeo temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and encloses a sculpture of Nandi and 3 buffaloes. The rustic charm and a variety of historical and religious monuments make it an attractive place.
  • One can only wonder how people built temples at such locations.
  • Fort is in a depleted state... Temples around fort are worth visiting for the history they depict
  • the achalgarh temple is very nice and holy place .. it is very good temple and the sculpture of NANDI here is too huge and very heavy ..
  • Jain temples in the fort are very old . Best place for devotees to do rituals at the peaceful environment of the temple. Views from temple are mindblowing.must visit.
