TARAGARH FORT
Home >> RAJASTHAN FORTS & PALACES >> TARAGARH FORT

INTRODUCTION
Located at a distance of around 39 km off Kota, Taragarh Fort was the home of a major princely state at the height of the Rajput heydays. The Taragarh Fort was built in 1345 and was the center of a kingdom in Rajasthan.

LEGEND
According to local belief, a huge fortune lies somewhere inside the Taragarh fort. It is said that the fortune was guarded by an Afghan family of warriors and even the king never had direct access to it. But with the death of the last Pathan warrior during World War I, the secret was lost for ever. Locals say that the fortune consists of precious gold, diamonds, rubies and gems. Though a few missions were launched by later rulers to find the treasure, all efforts have been in vain.

DESCRIPTION
The main gateway of the fort has some meticulous carvings of elephants. Infact, there are three gateways to the fort. They are named Lakshmi Pol, Phuta Darwaza and Gagudi ki Phatak. Most parts of these impressive gateways are now in ruins. During its heydays, Taragarh fort was renowned for its tunnels crisscrossing the entire hillside. These tunnels allowed the king and his deputies to flee in case there was an imminent danger to their lives from enemies. Unfortunately, no maps of these tunnels are available in present times. From the Taragarh Fort, a spectacular view of Kota town is available.
Pay homage at Miran Saheb ki Dargah that is located within the fort walls. This mausoleum is dedicated to Miran Saheb, a brave warrior who sacrificed his life defending Taragarh in an enemy invasion. Taragarh Fort was an important center of military activity during the Mughal domination in Ajmer. Later during the British occupation of Ajmer, Taragarh was used as a sanatorium. Enjoy a spectacular view of the city below from the Taragarh Fort and drink in beautiful vistas of Ajmer steeped in the warmth of the last rays of the setting sun. Also tour the interesting Dudha Mahal located at a little distance from the Taragarh Fort.

Fort Attractions

The Water Reservoirs
The Taragarh fort has some huge water reservoirs. These reservoirs were built to store water and supply it to the residents during time of crisis. It is said that if released in full force, the water had the capacity to wash away people residing below. The reservoirs have been carved out of the rocky base of the fort.

Bhim Burj and Garbha Gunjan
There is a massive stone tower within the fort complex called Bhim Burj. The tower was built to house a huge cannon named Garbha Gunjan. Garbha Gunjan is regarded as the second largest cannon in India. The cannon made such a thunderous sound that soldiers had to run immediately after firing it.

Rani Mahal
Rani Mahal is a small palace within the fort complex built for the wives and concubines of rulers. The Mahal has, however lost most of its charm as the shine of its spectacular murals and stained glass windows have completely faded away.
