Tour the imperial Taragarh
Fort and explore the regal secrets of this remarkable
structure in stone located atop the Nagpahari hill in
Ajmer with Indian Horizons.
Constructed in 1354 A.D., the Taragarh Fort in Ajmer
is a spectacular illustration of Rajasthani architecture.
Six imposing gates and a thick crenellated wall guard
the entrance to this erstwhile Chauhan bastion.
You are welcome to explore the royal secrets of Taragarh though
a section of this massive structure is not open for public viewing.
See the awe-inspiring Bhim Burj i.e. a massive battlement
on which rests a large canon and admire the huge stone water
reservoirs built within the fort. The main gateway that leads
you to the fort is decorated with stone sculptures of elephants.
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.
