  • The rajputana Sheraton at Jaipur and the Jaypee Palace were excellent but The Park in Delhi, wasn't in the same level, the public spaces like corridor were dirty.
    Excellent experience guided and suggested by an excellent tour conductor. Thanks a lot.

Kishangarh Fort Phool Mahal  Kishangarh

Kishangarh is a small sleepy town located 27 km away from Ajmer. It owes its name to its founder Maharaja Kishan Singh who built this town in 1611 AD. Formerly the capital of a princely state ruled by the Rathore clan, Kishangarh boasts of a rich past. In fact one of the finest schools of miniature painting flourished in Kishangarh under the patronage of the poet king Sawant Singh (1637-1657). The Bani Thani paintings of Kishangarh are its main attractions besides the grand Kishangarh Fort and the Phool Mahal, which are some of the must visit sites if you travel to Kishangarh.

Kishangarh is actually made up of two towns, one an urban sprawl near the railway station, and the second a charming settlement tucked behind the Kishangarh fort, three kilometres away. The present Kishangarh is well known for its handicrafts and also has the distinction of being the largest marble and granite-cutting center in India. The best time to travel to Kishangarh is from October to March.
