As you know India is full of palaces and forts. Each fort has a tale to tell. I alwats get fascinated by forts, palaces and the lifestyle of people in those eras. Tijara Fort is of 19th century and the name itself gives an idea of carvings and beautifully designed interiors!

Tijara Fort was built by Maharaja Balwant Singh with the expertise from Kabul and Delhi architects. The fort is on the hilltop in Alwar. There is a touch of both Rajput and Afghan style construction and interiors. Being on the hilltop, views from windows are stunning!

Rani Mahal and Mardana Mahal in the fort are worth seeing! Gardens provide a refreshing touch to the whole property. Aam, Khas and Hawa Mahal raises eyebrows through their symmetric designs.
