Junagarh Fort

Junagarh Fort is a fort in the city of Bikaner, Rajasthan, India. The fort was originally called Chintamani and was renamed Junagarh or “Old Fort” in the early 20th century when the ruling family moved to Lalgarh Palace outside the fort limits. It is one of the few major forts in Rajasthan which is not built on a hilltop. The modern city of Bikaner has developed around the fort.

The fort complex was built under the supervision of Karan Chand, the Prime Minister of Raja Rai Singh, the sixth ruler of Bikaner, who ruled from 1571 to 1611 AD. Construction of the walls and associated moat commenced in 1589 and was completed in 1594. It was built outside the original fort of the city, about 1.5 kilometres from the city centre. Some remnants of the old fort are preserved near the Lakshmi Narayan temple.

Historical records reveal that despite the repeated attacks by enemies to capture the fort, it was not taken, except for a lone one-day occupation by Kamran Mirza. Kamran was the second son of the Mughal Emperor Babur who attacked Bikaner in 1534, which was then ruled by Rao Jait Singh.

The 5.28 hectares large fort precinct is studded with palaces, temples and pavilions. These buildings depict a composite culture, manifest in the mix of architectural styles.

A brilliant piece of history preserved well. If you are visiting Bikaner, visit to the fort is a must!
One of the most beautiful forts in India. We spent two hours inside the fort, each room has it’s own charm and takes us back to the time. I want to say Thank you to Trippy holidays.

A good place to visit. Most of the forts in Rajasthan are situated on hill-top while This fort is on ground level with a lot armour to exhibit. This was the first kingdom to be absorbed in Independent India.

The scenery here is picture perfect. You don`t need company to enjoy the serenity of this picturesque lake. So easy to soak up the peace and tranquility that prevails. A must add to your visit to Abu.

The history of the fort is very interesting, and they have a beautiful collection of artifacts. It houses the first plane gifted to Maharaja Ganga Singhji, a De Havilland.
