Alwar Fort

Bala Quila

Bala Quila, which is erected on a 300m steep peak. Though this fort did not give any ample evidence about the ruler who constructed this fortress, it reveals its close association with the mighty Mugals. 

The ancient Hindu scriptures, the Puranas, dictate that a fort depicts the strength of a king. Bala Quila embodies this old saying and it represents the might and valor of the Rajput rulers. The all-embracing fortifications extend to a large area and with in that expansion we can see so many minarets and fabulous mansions.
