Ranthambore Fort Sawai Madhopur - Tourist Attraction Rajasthan

Ranthambore Fort lies within the Ranthambore National Park, near the city of Sawai Madhopur, the park being the former hunting grounds of the Maharajahs of Jaipur until the time of India's Independence. The mighty powerful fort of Ranthambore has seen an immense number of attacks and conquests. The fort was the major barrier for the invaders because of the difficulty they faced to capture and the well-planned construction of the fort. According to Government of Rajasthan's Amber Development & Management Authority, it is likely that the construction started in the mid-10th century during the reign of Sapaldaksha, and continued a few centuries after that.

The beautiful ruins of the fort have an aesthetic appeal that can attract the vision and minds of all the people who lay their eyes on the masterpiece. The fort is considered an epitome of power due to its history of defending the Rajput Empire against the attacks of foreign invaders. The fort is now a tourist attraction and appeals too many historians and many common people who wish to seek more knowledge and experience the architecture and history of the place. It is a formidable fort having been a focal point of the historical developments of Rajasthan. The fort was held by the Chahamanas (Chauhans) until the 13th century, when the Delhi Sultanate captured it.

Inside  The Ranthambore fort, there are three Hindu temples dedicated to Ganesha, Shiva and Ramlalaji constructed in 12th and 13th centuries from red Karauli stone. There is also a Jain temple of Lord Sumatinath (5th Jain Tirthankar) and Lord Sambhavanath.
