WelcomHeritage Khimsar Fort

WelcomHeritage Khimsar Fort
P.O. Khimsar, Dist. Nagaur, Khimsar, Rajasthan, India - 341 025

Historical Background
This magnificent fort is literally off the beaten track. Set in the midst of sand dunes, this amazing fort stands as securely as it did over many centuries of battle and strife. The construction of the fort was begun in 1523 by Rao Karamsji, 8th son of the founder of Jodhpur Rao Jodha, who chose the spot of Khimsar, 90 km from Jodhpur where one brother resided and 150 km away from Bikaner, kingdom of another brother.

Twenty one generations later, a part of this fort is still residence to the Karamsot Rathor direct lineage while the rest has been opened out to royal Rajput hospitality, personally overseen by the family, on a grand and elegant scale.

Brief Description

WelcomHeritage Khimsar Fort borders the stark and arid Thar Desert, as you are cocooned within the ramparts of this oasis of comfort with its 11 acres of lush lawns under the canopy of bright clear skies by day and brilliant unending stars by night. It was for good cause that it was awarded the 'Grand Heritage Award for Excellence' by the Ministry of Tourism, Government of India. Open spaces, courtyards surrounding the rooms, stone carved exteriors, windows and arches are characteristic of this fort.
