Rohetgarh Fort is the bastion of the chivalrous Champawat clan of Rathores. Even though this fort is one of the lesser known forts of Rajasthan, its architectural marvel and exquisite carvings and paintings speak volumes about the beauty of the citadel. The Rohetgarh Fort was presented as a gift to Thakur Dalpat Singh I in 1622 AD for leading and winning several wars under the banner of the Rathores of Marwar. Rohet, where the fort is situated, has been one of the most important jagirs (fief) of the state of Marwar. This grandeur and elegant fort still serves as the residence of the family members of Thakur Dalpat Singh I. A part of this splendid fort has now been converted into a luxurious heritage hotel. This fort hotel is a paradise for nature lovers, known for its peaceful haven with well manicured lawns, where one can easily sight peacocks roaming freely in the fort and the only sound one can hear is the chirping of the birds.
The heritage hotel is decorated by beautiful Rajasthani handicrafts, hunting trophies, royal paintings, some of the finest Persian carpets, and illuminating chandeliers. The hotel has been furnished with some of the most elegant and modern equipments. It also boasts of several modern facilities which are served in a rich Rajasthani style. For generations, this magnificent fort was occupied by the family members of Thakur Dalpat Singh and has been a witness to several historical events. The chefs at the splendid heritage hotel are quite famous for their delectable Rajasthani dishes. Over the years, Rohetgarh Fort has attracted many tourists, due to its serenity and splendor.
