Built in AD 1648 and
called after himself, the town and Fort of Roopangarh was constructed
by Maharaja Roop Singh of Kishangarh State between the mind -
17th to 18th centuries. This is called the
'Golden Period' of Kishangarh Art and Culture, and saw to the
flourishing of the world famous school of Miniature Paintings.
Originally a nine turreted Fort, it has been built over and added
on by several generations and the different styles can still be
seen in the structure. Now beautifully restored and renovated
into a hotel, it is the first 'War-Fort' to have been done so.
The nineteen large rooms are individually and tastefully decorated,
keeping in mind the history and heritage surrounding it.
A.D. 1611: Kishangarh - where every inch of land was conquered
by a brave lineage of Kings; who after many a glorious battle
and heroic sacrifices, established their kingdom.
A.D.1649: Roopangarh - they made it their seat of power. Strategally
located on the main Moghul route-bordering the desert and the
vast plains of Sambhar Lake - 'ROOPANGARH FORT' became the hub
of activity. Within its nine turreted fortification were made
foundries, armouries, granaries, underground passages, jails and
palaces. The best of architecture, music poetry and painting were
patronised and refined at a court where the delicate touch of
its artists transcribed the beauty of living to exquisite miniature
paintings, known today as 'The Kishangarh School'.
A.D. 1997: The present Maharaja Brajraj Singh (20th generation of direct descent since the founder), opens this majestic
Fort to received discerning travellers who enjoy a sense of history
and seek a story from the silent walls.
