Perched on the edge of the Great Thar Desert in the heart of rural India, the unique fort at Khimsar offers a wide range of experiences.
The fort's battle-scarred walls and turrets are a tell-tale reminder of Khimsar's glorious past. In mid 18th century, the royal family moved in and a new zenana (ladies' wing) was built with finely carved windows in stone grills to provide purdah or veil for ladies-in-waiting. Subsequently, Thakur Onkar Singh built for himself a regal wing.
In 1997-98, the Khimsar Fort was awarded the Grand Heritage classification by the Department of Tourism, Government of India. A section of the fort still remains the residence of the royal family of Khimsar.
