“Average Fort”
Review of Pokhran Fort

Pokhran Fort
Ranked #33 of 75 things to do in Jaisalmer
Attraction details
Reviewed 5 February 2017

You will find forts present in all parts of Rajasthan, and this is the fort at Pokhran. Historically the maharaja had occupied it, but today its partly a hotel and the rest is not much to see. There is one section which is like a small museum containing historical artifacts used by royalty and another part which is the surrounding are like the walls and canons at the top of it. You will not find many people around here because it is not one of the famous forts. But if you are interested in history and are visiting this place you can visit it.

Pokharan is a small detour from the highway but its a good stop to take to have lunch and a break in the journey.

While the fort is not big but the caretaker there helped us click some of the best family snaps which we could have taken in the midst of a fort. Well maintained, quite a bit of history it's a small detour but we felt was worth it. The architecture is restored and well maintained which makes for great snaps

If you are travelling through Rajistan and visiting the major forts, such as the Red Fort, Amber Fort, Jaisalmer, kumbhalgarh fort etc, then you can give this one a miss. It is surrounded by markets and quite small. It is not well maintained and has no interpretive signage etc. Unless you have a specific interest in this fort or need a leg stretch after hours on THOSE ROADS... give it a miss

Extremely non maintained fort.
Not clean at all.
If you have visited other fort before this then you will cry for wasting time on this fort :(
