Landmarks

Badnore Fort is an example of medieval Indian military style of architecture. This seven storied fort stands atop a hill and presents extensive views all around. There are a number of small monuments and temples within the precincts of Badnor Fort in Rajasthan India and around it. The buildings within Badnore Fort Bhilwara are all built in traditional Rajputana style of architecture, which is a local variation of the extensive Hindu style of architecture.

Although Badnore Fort Bhilwara is in a state of decay presently, it represents the glory and architectural splendor of the erstwhile Rajput rulers of Rajasthan.[citation needed] The strategic location of the fort increased its significance, and the fort has served as a mute witness to a lot of strife in its earlier days.[tone]
