Roopangarh Fort is located at Ajmer. Roopangarh fort was built by Maharaja Roop Singh Rathore in the year 1648. Roopangarh Fort is a vast war Fort and has been over 350 years in the making.
The fort was originally built for the war purposes and houses various ancient passageways, jails, battlements, granaries, armories and foundries. It was sited at strategic point atop a hill to the north of Kishangarh controlling the important trade route to the Sambhar Salt Lake.
This fort with its traditional decoration and hospitality welcomes guests and serves them with warmth so that they can treasure their trip to Ajmer and their stay at the Roopangarh Fort. Originally a nine turreted Fort, it has been built over and added on by several generations and the different styles can still be seen in the structure.
The best of architecture, music, poetry and painting were patronized and refined at a court where the delicate touch of its artists transcribed the beauty of living to exquisite miniature paintings, known today's as The Kishangarh School.
Now beautifully restored and renovated into a hotel, it is the first 'War-Fort' to have been done so. The nineteen large rooms are individually and tastefully decorated, keeping in mind the history and heritage surrounding it.
Surprisingly large guest rooms, four poster beds, colonial Indian furniture, open log fires in winter all assure you of a warm welcome. Combined atmosphere of splendid views from the massive terrace and magical evenings under the clear sky with piercing desert music is intoxicating. Add to this modern day facilities and your holiday is truly memorable.
Large guest bedrooms, incredibly high ceilings, wide doors, casements and romantic balconies all a reminder of a time when inhabitants thirsted and drank nothing but the fresh exhilarating breeze. Each with large terraces and all modern amenities. Dinner on the terrace was quite good.
The real highlight, however, was walking in the town. Children and even adults were very friendly and eager to be photographed, and other tourists were few and far between.
The magic and the grandeur of the fort still lingers and this charming heritage hotel beckons like no other in the world.
