2.8/5 based on 170+ 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.

  • A portion of the fort consisting mainly the museum is open to tourists. Nothing much to see in the museum but worth a one time visit. Children may like the weapons displayed. If you miss out, probably...  read more »
  • The place is extremely shoddy, museum filled with pan stains. Only good part is the view of ganges river else place is not worth a visit. 
  • This is something I would say you can avoid. May be ramleela of ramnagar is good. I want to experience once. But the fort as such is not a great place. I felt it was waste of place. In India we see ma...  read more »
  • One of those rare forts constructed by Hindu king bang on the bank of Ganges. This fort made of Chunar stone is favorite haunt of Bengali film makers. Bengali films like Nauka Dubi,Chokherbali, Har Har Byomkesh had been shot here. No doubt a picturesque location.
  • Mai gaya naho hi but so nice plase very nice
  • An example of bad management of precious resources. Poorly maintained, no professional staff, no safe water, the wash rooms are horrible, no directions- this is a dilapidated fort. Owners are just trying to make maximum profit with least effort. If you can tolerate the above, will get a glimpse of Raj's life and a beautiful Ganga.
  • Its the adobe of King of Varanasi or Kashi Naresh. the half of the fort is used by the king for accomodation and half of the fort has been made as Historical Museum.
  • Situated on the opposite bank of River ganges across Assi Ghat , It is the palace of King of Banaras Belonged to Royal family of 'Maharaja of Kashi'. The Museum has a Rare Collections of War Amenities, magnificent ivory works, Jaw-dropping Jewelries, Weapons Room, Sun Clock and Vintage cars of 17th & 18th Century. Ticket 150 rupees, no photo. Exposition in bad state, all dusty. Fort nothing special, more good looks outside.
