Bhainsrorgarh Fort

Bhainsrorgarh has the proud claim of being one of the oldest continually inhabited forts, being used since 2nd century BC, originally built by the ‘Ror’ people. Its vantage location between the Chambal and Bamani rivers not only bestow Bhainsrorgarh with unmatched natural beauty but also a historical significance buoyed by the fact that it is almost equidistant from major historical towns of regal India such as Jaipur, Udaipur, Ujjain, Indore and Jodhpur.

Every corner of the fort turned heritage boutique hotel homes in it plenty of stories. It is located high above the glistening Chambal river, on a steep slate ridge at about 200 ft high. The breathtaking view of and from the fort is ample to put any weary traveller at ease. Slightly off from the tourist circuits and usual tropes, Bhainsrorgarh is truly special, amidst the hundreds of other palaces turned hotels. The homely vibe of the resident royal family, plush rooms and the dramatic view are reasons for this. It is said that when British historian Col. James Todd laid eyes on this mesmerizing palace, he said that if he was offered a jagir in Rajasthan and had an option to choose, he would never pass an opportunity to make Bhainsrorgarh his home. The fort offers an incredible experience for those who want to veer off the popular circuits, and get a flavour of true Rajasthani hospitality.

Nestled in the lap of nature’s glory, perched on 200 feet vertical ‘slate’ cliff overlooking rivers Chambal and Bamani, the life-giving waters have spawned beauty, both natural and man-made. Cradle of historical settlements for millennia, Bhainsrorgarh spoils you with choice of historical and cultural immersions. The Badoli Temple Complex is the epitome of architectural brilliance, having existed since the 9th century AD. A short 15 minutes’ drive, this is a must experience for an indulgence in the exquisite and fine.

 

Early mornings and evenings are when avifauna of the region come alive and is best experienced from the quite hull of a country boat. Glimpses of reticent Muggers (crocodiles) sprawled on the sandy banks are eerily relaxing. Combine this with a picnic and cooking demonstrations. An evening drive through the idyllic landscapes visiting tribal villages on the edges of the jungle, as the people retire the animals stir to action at the Mukundarrah Hills Tiger Reserve & National Park.
