Kankwari Fort in Alwar

Kankwari Fort in Alwar is one of the major attractions for visitors to the world famous Sariska National Park. The ancient Kankwari Fort lies in the buffer area of the sanctuary about 21 km from its main entry point. Though the fort is lesser known but it holds special significance in the history of medieval India. Kankwari Fort in Alwar is flanked with hillocks covered with lush plantations and sprawling green meadows that add to the beauty of the otherwise ruined fort.

The historic Kankwari Fort in Alwar dates back to the days of Mughal rule in India. It is believed that Dara Shikoh, the brother of Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb, served his lifelong exile at the Kankwari Fort. History suggests that Aurangzeb dispelled his brother from the capital after a serious tiff and commanded a lifelong exile for him at the Kankwari Fort in Alwar that was specially built by Aurangzeb for the purpose. It is believed that nearly thousands of soldiers were ordered to stay at the fort round the clock to guard Dara Shikoh's activities and to ensure that he does not flee.

If you are an adventure freak, you will simply love the journey to the Kankwari Fort in Alwar. Driving on a bumpy route up to the fort filled with huge boulders and ditches all along the way is indeed some adventure for a visitor to the national park. However, the picturesque views of sprawling green landscapes and lush meadows that surround the fort from all over make up for the seemingly difficult journey to Kankwari Fort in Alwar. Enveloped in absolute tranquility, Kankwari Fort is surely worth a visit (despite a tough expedition) during your stay in Alwar.
