About Alila Fort, Bishangarh:

Standing tall, majestically amidst the rustic setting of a small village in Rajasthan, the first sight of Alila Fort almost seems like a dream. Donned in warm lights, the fort stands out, glistening in gold underneath the azure sky. This is sure to be a view that you will remember forever. Bishangarh village is located conveniently close to Pink City, Jaipur and was a part of Maharaja Jai Singh's empire in 16th century. Alila is the only Warrier fort in Rajasthan to have been converted into a heritage resort of such grand proportions. The architecture is reminiscent of Gharana architecture that is influenced by both, Mughals and the British.
