The district of Alwar in Rajasthan is positioned in a cluster of small hills of the Aravalli Ranges. The Alwar district is very popular for the Sariska Wildlife Sanctuary. Alwar has a rich historical as well as cultural heritage. Kesroli is a small village located in the district of Alwar in the state of Rajasthan, and is positioned at a distance of 155 kilometers from Delhi. The village of Kesroli is just a 3-hour drive from Delhi.
The village of Kesroli is located on the top of a hill and the main part is a 600 year old fort, which is presently being run by a small luxury hotel with 21 rooms.
The old fort is small, grey-brown in color and pretty non-descript. The Kesroli Fort does not seem to have much of character, and it does not even generate any excitement. But as one climbs up the paved slope and walks into the entrance of the fort into the central patio, one finds it captivating. The walls of the Kesroli Fort are covered by red bougainvilleas, which cling attractively to the walls. The lunch area of the fort is casually spread over the small gardens, domed balconies and lawns.
Another place of interest for the tourists going for a Tour to Kesroli from Delhi is the Bala Qila.
The other tourist attraction in Alwar is the Vinay Vilas Mahal or the City Palace Complex.
Another attraction is the Jai Samand Lake, a beautiful artificial lake built by Maharaja Jai Singh in 1910 A.D.
