The fort, which was built in 1593 AD by Raja Rai Singh, a commander in Emperor Akbar’s army, is a powerful fortification surrounded by a moat and has several lovely residences. The courtyards, balconies, kiosks, and windows strewn throughout these red sandstone and marble mansions create a stunning ensemble.
In honour of his father, Maharaja Lal Singh, Maharaja Ganga Singh created the palace, which is a red sandstone architectural marvel. Beautiful latticework and filigree work adorn the castle. The sprawling grounds with flowering bougainvillaea and dancing peacocks have been transformed into a luxury hotel and the Shri Sadul museum. The museum, which takes up the whole first floor of the palace, has well-preserved vintage pictures and animal specimens.

The famed 600-year-old temple dedicated to Karni Mata, a manifestation of Goddess Durga, is located on the Jodhpur road. Maharaja Ganga Singh gave the temple’s massive, beautifully wrought silver gates. The rats that roam freely inside the temple’s sanctum sanctorum are the most fascinating aspect of the shrine. Due to the notion that they would be resurrected as holy men, they are revered and nourished by priests and worshippers.
