is an unassailable fortress, which has never been conquered. Built
in 1593 A.D. by Raja Rai Singh, one of the most distinguished generals
in the army of Emperor Akbar, the fort is a formidable structure
encircled by a moat.
The main entrance to the fort is Karan Pol [gate], that is east
facing. Next to it is the Suraj Pol meaning the sun gate. The fort
situates in it some very magnificent palaces like Anup Mahal, Ganga
Niwas and Rang Mahal or palace of pleasure. The Har Mandir is the
majestic chapel for the royal family for worshipping their gods
and goddesses. These palaces, constructed in red sandstone and marble,
make a picturesque ensemble of courtyards, balconies, kiosks and
windows dotted all over the structure. The premises also houses
a museum which is an array of a rich collection .
