Tour Description

Guided tour of Ranthambhore Fort

 Explore Ranthambhore Fort, accompanied by one of our experienced naturalist guides. This historic 10th century fort (now in the park) was a strategic point on the main route to Central India, and was the scene of many terrible battles between its Rajput chieftains and the invading armies from Delhi and Agra. The fort was attacked by Alauddin Khili and later by Akbar in 1569. This battle has been glorified in Mughal miniatures and bards have sung about the heroic deeds of its Rajput defenders. The fort was eventually handed over to the Amber kings.

This jungle fort, despite its ruined state, looks daunting. Its massive gateways, ramparts and bastions make entry a tricky affair. Within it is an 8th century temple dedicated to Ganesha, whose priest receives sacks of letters, sometimes addressed simply to “Shri Ganesha, Ranthambhore”, especially during the marriage season, in order to evoke the deity’s blessings. Clumps of grass, tied together by newlyweds for luck, are also seen along the way to the fort temple.

A guided tour of Ranthambhore Fort includes private Jeep transfers to/from your hotel, as well as an experienced naturalist guide to explain the rich history. The excursion lasts about two and a half hours on average.
