Timangarh Fort

Harini Sriram
Visit Ancient FortsThere are plenty of abandoned forts around Karauli, and Timangarh Fort, located about 40 km from the town, is believed to be close to a thousand years old. It must have been gorgeous at one point, given the level of artistry and skill that has gone into it; sadly, it’s not in great shape, but it has an eerie charm. Other forts in the region include Unt Giri, Dev Giri, Mandrayal, Fatehpur Fort, Bahadurpur Ka Kila and the Ramathra Fort, which is now a luxury heritage hotel.
