Overview

About Neemrana Fort Palace

Restored historic Fort and Palace. Even the loos have views!

Built in 1464, Neemrana Fort Palace became the third capital of the descendants of Prithviraj Chauhan III, who had fled Delhi in 1192 after he was vanquished in battle by Muhammad Ghori. Neemrana’s rulers, proud of lineage, continued to assert themselves, even under the British, as their kingdom suffered.

Eventually, Raja Rajinder Singh of Neemrana moved away to Vijay Bagh and the Fort-Palace crumbled and its ramparts began to give way. For forty years he tried to rid himself of his liability but there were no takers. Finally, in 1986, the ruins were acquired for restoration.

What was once designed  to keep people out has been redesigned to welcome guests and Neemrana Fort-Palace opened as a heritage property in 1991.

With the nobility of its façade restored, what was once a grand ruin, now stands resplendent as the jewel in the Neemrana crown.
