Screen Shot 2016-03-09 at 10.09.05 PM I discovered this fort purely by chance during my recent nth visit to Jaipur. We were actually out for a day bike ride to Abhaneri Stepwell but then that highway didn’t allow bikes so just randomly googled forts on google maps and arrived at this one and was glad that I did. Just 40 km from Jaipur is this secluded and very interesting fort, although not maintained too well.

There is a palace in the Achrol village, which is getting converted into a hotel soon. From this palace the small hike to Achrol Fort begins. The fort has a great panoramic view and a very interesting architecture. There was nothing about the history of the fort at the place but for more details you can read this blog:
