Khandar Fort in Sawai Madhopur

The invincible Khandar Fort in Sawai Madhopur is located about 40 km from the main city and is a popular excursion site for many visitors. The fort finds special mention in the history of medieval India and was earlier known as the "security post of Ranthambore". Owing to its strategic location on the top of a huge vertical hill, Khandar Fort in Sawai Madhopur could never come under easy attack by the enemy and is truly regarded as the "invincible" fort of the glorious bygone era.

It was for this reason that Khandar Fort in Sawai Madhopur remained the favorite for many a dynasty in India. The fort was long ruled by the Sisodia kings of Mewar after which it was taken over by the Mughals for a short while before coming under the direct control of the Maharajas of Jaipur in the 18th century. There are a number of attractive historic monuments within the imposing Khandar Fort in Sawai Madhopur that are worth a visit. The old Jain Temple is famous for its appealing idols of Jain gurus carved out of rocks. The Hanuman Temple is home to a striking single stone idol of Lord Hanuman with a demon under his feet. The temple attracts devotees in large numbers from all over the country.

The two enormous water tanks of the times Ramkunda and Laxmankunda are also worth seeing at Khandar Fort in Sawai Madhopur. Hawa Mahal is truly a masterpiece of architecture with intricately carved latticed windows, arches and pillars. The experience of feeling the mild breeze blow from the tiny windows and touch your face is simply delightful. The other famous temples that are a must visit during your tour to Khandar Fort are Chaturbhuja Temple that houses an impressive idol of the four armed God, Jhirikunda, Gobind Devji Temple, Jagatpalji Temple and Jayanti Mata Temple. The magnificent Rani Mahal perched on the fort's highest platform is perhaps the most splendid palace in Sawai Madhopur.
