Achrol Fort, Jaipur Overview

The Achrol Fort and Palace is actually an old haveli, or a large residential complex, located inside Achrol village. Hidden away from the busy Jaipur-Delhi Highway, the village also houses some more old havelis, but it is all in all a very small village. The fort belongs to the Achrol Thikana family, who were an extended relative of the Kachhawa rulers of Jaipur.

Not a lot is known about this palace, and official records about the history of the palace are non-existence, except the fact that the Achrol Thikana dates back to 1550 A.D. Because of it’s near invisibility, there is a considerable lack of attention and preservation of this palace.

While there seems to have been some attempts at restoring the palace, it wasn’t ever finished. The fort in itself was used for military and strategic purposes, while the haveli was used as a residential quarter. The fort has a wide panoramic view, and beautiful, unique architecture.
