No visit to the Ranthambore National Park is complete without seeing the ancient Ranthambore Fort that is located right at the center of the park. It is said to date back to somewhere around 944 AD though opinions differ as to who constructed the fort. One of the oldest forts in India, the Ranthambore Fort was a fiercely contested seat of power between many rulers. In fact, the fort has been a witness to some of the bloodiest battles in Indian history. Legend has it that the Ranthambore Fort is the place where ten thousand women committed Jauhar or mass suicide to escape dishonor at the hands of a victorious opponent somewhere around 1381 AD.

The Ranthambore Fort is situated on a hill but there is no path leading to the fort. So you have no option but to take a flight of stairs that starts from the bottom of the hill and leads you to the fort. After a 20-minute climb, you finally reach the fort, which offers a fantastic view of the Ranthambore National Park. Inside the fort there are some old but interesting monuments and buildings. You should not forget to see the Hamir Court, which has some beautiful acoustics. The Ranthambore Fort also houses some temples, including a temple dedicated to Lord Ganesh that attracts many pilgrims.
