Famous Siwana Fort in Barmer


Distance : 151 km from Barmer

Nearby lies the Siwana Fort, which is not quite comparable to Jaisalmer fort, but well worth a look if you are in the vicinity. This famous fort was built by a famous Panwar ruler Raja Bhoj’s son Veernarayan, who at one stage controlled much of Barmer and had close ties with the Solanki dynasty of Gujarat. Although the fort is a little worse for wear with the passage of time, it still houses a beautiful pond on its premises. If you turn the pages of history you come across the time when Alauddin Khilji, the Sultan of Delhi, besieged the fort in the early 14th century and the people of Nakoda mounted a heroic defence. To commemorate this ancient event an annual fair called the Kalyan Singh Ka Mela is still held within the precincts of the fort in the month of Shravan (July-Aug).
