History

Bhainsrorgarh is a fortified outpost of the kingdom of Mewar. It crowns a 200 foot rocky ridge overlooking Chambal River. This fort was built by Rawat Lal Singh in 1741 A.D. The famous British historian Col. James Tod after seeing the splendid and mesmerizing beauty of Bhainsrorgarh said that if he was offered a Jagir (fiefdom) and given an option to choose it anywhere in Rajasthan, he would have chosen Bhainsrorgarh.
