Ramnagar Fort, Varanasi
(2.8/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Observe an enormous and varied collection of antiques and artifacts from the past at Ramnagar Fort. Built at the end of the 18th century, the fort is still inhabited by the Maharaja of Varanasi, and so remains closed to the public. You can visit the onsite museum, however: housed in the fort's public audience hall, it contains a plethora of items such as vintage American cars, elephant saddles carved from silver, and a vast antique armory with items from Africa, Burma, and Japan. Put Ramnagar Fort into our Varanasi trip itinerary maker to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Varanasi.

  • The fort itself is very badly maintained and the museum has artefacts that haven't been looked after. It is very sad to see the state that it is in. There are cars that are full of dust and haven't be...  more »

  • Abhi v raja ka rajya h
  • This place is kinda ignored by the government authorities... Cars in museum ae eating dust like hell... Other stuff and small case built in wall were cleaned like 100 years ago... Old men serving you every where ... Only vintage guns were clean but cars and chariot or whatever it is is fading and rotting.... 😏
  • Ramnagar Fort is just on the opposite side the Ganges to Varanasi. I went there by a boat from Daswasamedh Ghat. The up and down trip to the fort including the wait for about 3 hrs costed Rs 1000. It was memorable trip crossing past all the historical ghats of Benaras. The museum in the fort is worth visiting.
  • Its nice historical place to be visited situated on bank of river ganges in ramnagar,varanasi .
  • Have so much to offer, but very very poorly maintained. Can be turned around to a major tourist attraction. Envious Collection of weapons and cars in pathetic condition.
