The Alwar fort, built on a hill, about 1960 feet above the sea level, stands majestically 1000 feet above the city of Alwar . The fort was built by Hasan Khan Mewati in 1550 A.D. It passed from the Mughals, to the Marathas, to the Jats, till it was finally captured by the Kachhwaha Rajputs. The fort, from nort to south is about 5 kms. long and is about 1.5 kms. wide. There are six entrances to the fort which are, Chand Pol, Suraj Pal (named after Raja Suraj Mal of Bharatpur), Jai Pol , Kishan Pol, Andheri Gae and Laxman Pol.

  Enroute to Sariska, 12 Kms. South west of Alwar is the water places of Siliserh with a lake surrounded by low, wooded hills, Now a Rajathan Tourism (RTDC) Hotel. The lake was built in 1845 A.D. by constructing an earthern dam between two hills to store the water of a small tributary of river Ruparel. When full, the total water spread covers an area of about 10 sq. kms. The open terraces of theSiliserth Palace provide a breathtaking view of the water spread of the lake and its surrounding environment.

This is a good place to spend a couple of evening hours before retiring to the guest house for dinner.
