This 14th-century fort was built by the Yaduvanshi Rajputs who claim to be descendants of Lord Krishna – though they probably weren’t as good flutists. The fort has had many owners over the years - the Mughals, the Jats, the British, and, of course, today it is owned by Neemrana Hotels who have saved this and other landmarks from ignominious decay.
Today the Hill Fort is one of India’s premier locations and has hosted a number of fancy events including the International Festival of Indian Literature. Sitting on dark Hornstone Breccia rocks, its ramparts rise 50-65 meters commanding vistas of the Rajasthan landscape. The rooms have all been designed into the pre-existing structure and create an ambiance unlike a hotel and more like staying at a friend’s house. The restaurant serves a variety of food, obviously, North Indian cuisine is there, but so are other culinary delights from France, Italy, and Thailand. So stay in this historic fort for a truly unique experience.
