- Rajgarh Fort
Distance : 35km south of Alwar
Rajgarh is spread among lovely wooded valleys. There's an old hilltop
fort built by Pratap Singh, the founder of Alwar State. Rajgarh served
as the old capital of the region till 1771 when Singh came into the
scene and set up Alwar city as his capital.
¤ The Fort Palace
The frescoes inside the fortpalace have also lost their original
charm. But the Sheesh Mahal (Mirror Palace) still retains its
character. Take a good look around the place to discover some of its
secret passages. Such passages were a necessary feature of forts and
palaces as they were much needed during emergencies.
¤ The Rajgarh Picturesque Village
At the bottom of the hill is the little village of Rajgarh. It has a
fairytale setting with narrow alleyways and old havelis (mansions).
Exploring these and the surrounding fertile gardens can be fun. It's
no wonder that a British traveller described Rajgarh as "a
perfect earthly paradise."
