Nagaur Fort Overview

Nagaur in Rajasthan is a fort which epitomizes a rich historical past. Located between Jodhpur and Bikaner, which are also known for many forts and monuments, Nagaur is known for its historic monuments and a beautiful fort. Formerly known as Ahichhatrapur, this town was a strong witness to the battle for power that took place between the rulers at Delhi, Marwar and Gujrat.

The first inhabitants of Nagaur were the Naga Rajputs. Since then, the town had many different reigns. The most prominent influence was of the Muslim rulers who ruled for many years together. The town is a witness to the valour of the young Indian ruler, Amar Singh Rathore who died against his war for justice with Mughal rulers. Alienated from his reigning kingdom, Jodhpur, Amar Singh was then adopted by Nagaur with much satisfaction.

Nagaur apart from its forts and historical monuments is popular for being the host of the biggest cattle fairs in the state of Rajasthan. This sleepy town gets alive with the fair that is full of festivity that ropes in anew awakening.

The Nagaur Fort which is the central spot in here dates back its history to the 4th century constructed by the Nagavanshis. This fort was later reconstructed using stone by the Ghaznivities in the early 12th century. Since then, a constant attempt has been taken to improvise this historical monument with a new meaning and form. This land has been the place of rule for many renowned emperors in India.

Nagaur Fort is the heart of this town and the best fort with a flat land that has a distinct monument in the whole of Rajasthan. The striking facade and the gigantic monuments are the house for many mosques, temples and palaces, which are true examples of splendour, intricate architecture and elegance.

Apart from the Nagaur fort, the other places that interest visitors include the Deepak Mahal, decorated with an impressive floral pattern and the Hadi Rani Mahal, which is adorned with many mural paintings. These monuments are one of its kind and a rare commodity to witness.
