Bishangarh

Located in the rural wilderness 60 kilometers north of Jaipur, is a quaint and not-too-known paradise called Bishangarh. Besides the rural charms of the place, its major attraction is Bishangarh Fort. It was a 200-years old abandoned fort that has been renovated into a luxury heritage hotel, with unique looks. Now it is called Alila Fort Bishangarh. Perched magnificently upon a granite hill, the fort appears seamlessly sculpted from the surrounding rustic terrain, overlooking 360-degree views of the impressive Rajasthani landscape. Like most military posts, the fort’s first line of defense was its location - the steep, rocky terrain leading up to it made for a tough climb. The structure was battle-designed to be invincible, impregnable and uninviting. Its three meters thick walls protected its then residents, an army of monkeys, and hundreds of thousands of bats.
