once forming the boundary of ranthambore, though today this is in shambles yet a visit to the khandar fort speaks volumes about the royal past. housed inside it are a series of temples dedicated to various gods and goddesses.

This is a big fort but not the most impressive as it has not been maintained and you have to walk up a lot of steps.

Second largest fort in Rajasthan overlooking the tiger reserve...1000 years of history...the structure is in surprisingly good condition. Worth the visit.

Sawai madhopur famous for some historical fort. One of them is khandar fort which is very beautiful. It is away 50 km from sawai madhopur. For visit this place, you must have good stamina because there are very long walking way. For taking some rest, there are also good facilities like food, water, park etc.

A long climb but worth while when you see the view from the top. The upkeep of the fort is not as it should be and one should be careful as leopards roam around freely in this area.
