Ramnagar Fort


Ramnagar Fort, constructed by Maharaja Balwant Singh in 17th century, is a medieval period fort located in the banks of the river Ganges. This was the royal residence of Raja of Banares, also known as Maharaja of Kashi. Still this fort continues as the residential palace of the royal family members.

The hall of public audience, popularly known as ‘Durbar Hall’, is a main attraction in the Ramnagar Fort. A blend of Indian and Islamic architecture can be seen in the construction of the Fort. The fort is made up of precious marble stones and the glossy marbles give the fort an eye-catching appearance.
