A small museum, nothing much special

It's a small fort situated in a small garden surrounded by rooms on all the four sides. We can't enter into the main building, and some items are exhibited in the rooms io the 4 sides. I feel much special about this fort.. Maximum for 1 hour.

Brilliancy Of Emperor Akbar, Or Magnet Forte

In Ajmer among many fortes the Akbar's forte is very attractive and a very secured forte for the Emperor Akbar, who himself commissioned in 1570, this forte for his stay in Ajmer as he was having a great affection and regard towards the Holy Shrine Of Sufi Saint Moin Uddin Chisti. No doubt it is a great work of art and a significant monument, which shows the Special talent and brilliancy of Emperor Akbar To construct this Magnet Forte, which he used in this construction. This forte was very important forte against the British Rule, as sir Thomas Roe got the Trade Permission from here By Emperor Jehangir. The Government museum exists in the forte and having many ancient shila lekh, statues and much more in the small galleries of the Museum, are of great attraction for tourists and travel lovers.

Light and Sounds Show

A very special and informative service by the Rajasthan Government. It was a nice experience.The marvellous combination of Lights and Sound together makes it a memorable moment and the story tail of ajmer's history added a good flavour to it. A must watch in ajmer city only costs 50 INR. Available in both English and Hindi.

Great place for history buffs (like me) !!!

It is a nice place, and the main attraction is the centre hall which was the decision making room of Akbar during some war. There are many cool stuffs in the museum surrounding the hall. There is a light and sound programme in the evening; so you can plan your visit accordingly if you are interested. The fee is nominal.

The place is average

There was not much to look around except few ancient arms and distorted statues.
