Perched atop a rocky promontory and overlooking the surrounding plains, Mehrangarh Fort and its towering walls rank among the most iconic landmarks in the country. Built in the 1450s by the rulers of the Marwar Kingdom, the fortress bears cannonball scars from the battles it saw in the following centuries. On your way up to the castle, you can marvel at the fortifications that rise 125 m (410 ft) above the city, sticking straight up from the hill's rock face. Explore the museum within to learn more about the fort's history and see an extensive collection of rare arms, armor, artwork, and other artifacts from the region. From the top of the battlements, lined with antique cannons, you'll get a sweeping view over the city and the landscape below.

A very well maintained fort of India. Excellent cleanliness and the museum inside. One of the best forts I can say. Must visit. Only fort with a lift fitted to take you to the top but obviously with an extra price. Surely helpful to senior citizens who wish to visit the fort and enjoy the view.
This is a fort like none other! There is so much to see, admire and gawk at. You will not get tired of this place. You can spent 2-3 hours here, Apart from beautiful architecture, Elaborate museums. The place has a restaurant, cafe and eateries along the way. The view of the sun city from the top of this structure is breathtaking.
