Need to climb 200 stairs from the parking area to reach till the fort. Not worth it as I didn't climb as was traveling with a toddler.

If you find history interesting and love to raja Maharaja's Fort then you should visit rajasthan because you won't find anything interesting at this place moreover lot of garbage is surrounded in this fort, not well maintained.
