More on Neemrana Fort Palace


Nimola Me, a brave local chieftain named the city as Neemrana. The Chauhans defeated him and took over the city. He showcased his desire for naming the city which he had lost to them. Being large at heart, they accepted his request and the city got its name. Built in 1464, the palace was the third capital of the descendants of Prithviraj Chauhan III whom Mohammad Ghori vanquished away in 1192 A.D. Even though the lineage of rulers suffered under the British Rule, they chose not to bow down. In 1947, Raja Rajinder Singh thought of moving down to Vijay Bagh as the facades, and the ramparts of the fort began to be given away. For around forty years he waited for takers so that he can get rid of his property.

Finally, in 1986, the ruins called for restoration. In 1991 the Neemrana Fort opened its doors with 15 liveable rooms. Since then it has been a holder of Intach-Satte award and a nominee for Aga Khan Award.
