Take the opportunity to get a guide to explain all the history and different structures within the grounds. Well preserved and attractive place to visit. Interesting Mogal architecture. Surprisingly quiet given the location. Don’t need a great deal of time if time is limited.

This is a large fort in excellent condition that contains a number of royal buildings. However, the most impressive buildings such as the Diwan-i-Klas, the Klas Mahal and Rang Mahal were closed for renovation. Infact, there appeared to be renovation work going on everywhere.
