An inseparable part of the Rajasthani culture and tradition, the colourful city of Alwar nestles amidst a cluster of small enchanting hills in the Aravallis. Apart from being the gateway to the Sariska tiger reserve, the historical city offers a treat to the visitors with its medieval era forts, palaces and lakes.

A Date With The Past
A part of the Mewat region of Rajasthan, the region of Alwar and its almost each and every site makes one walk through the galleries of the past, which witnessed several stages. Alwar, which was a small part of the Matsya kingdom during the Mahabharata period, was formally established in the year 1720 by a Rajput king, Pratap Singh, who had subsequently set up his capital in Rajgarh, south of Alwar. Later, when his successor accepted the sujereignty of the Mughals, the capital was shifted to Alwar.

Must See
City Palace : The ravishing City palace, which dates back to the 18th century CE, reflects a unique amalgamation of the Rajput and Mughal style of architecture. Built by Maharaja Vinay Singh, the secret of its inner beauty lies in its uniqueness that it does not have any stairs, but rather gently inclining corridors leading to the upper floors. The city palace, now headquarters of the Collectorate, also comprises a Sheesh Mahal, again an excellent example of the superb interior decorations. Besides, inside the premises of the city palace, also known as Vinay Vilas Mahal, lies the City Palace Museum - a home to exquisite furniture, stuffed tigers, pointed weapons, Mughal and Rajput paintings and ancient manuscripts.

Bala Fort(Quila) : The Bala fort, built by the Nikumbha Rajputs, is situated on a steep cliff at an altitude of 1000 feet, thereby providing a picturesque sight of the city. Once a host to the Mughal emperors Babar and Jahangir, the Rajputana Bala fort comprises 15 large towers, 51 small towers and 446 openings for musketry, along with its other pampered treasures like Jal Mahal, Durbar Hall and Salim Sagar(Named after a Mughal emperor, Jahangir).
