Brief

The description of India is incomplete without the mention of majestically standing mountains scattered around the nation. The era of Maharajas can be experienced at this land of majesties with their abandoned palaces, forts, mahals and etc. One of the magnificent creation can be explored by visiting Rampura Fort, situated at the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. The fort was built on the wrinkled terrain of Bundelkhand where the soil is quiet rough to showcase the grandeur of the KushwahaRajputs of Rampur village. This fort of bricks and limestone mortar is the residential place for the present owner who occupies one part of the fort. Ravines around the fort area are offering that sheer level of adventure and noise in the mind of the travellers who explore this fort. Guests will be welcomed to spend nights under the royal atmosphere to get a glimpse of the long-lost Maharaja’s life of this fort. This home-stay is different from other places because one may find personal touches of present owner who changed the interior to make it comfortable according to modern lifestyle. Home-cooked food prepared by maintaining the age-old methods are offered to the guests to introduce them with the royalty and their tastes. They follow the Mughal traditions in making delicious foods even now.
