Housing in the entire township in its ramparts this huge golden fort gives a scenic view of the desertscape from its 80 meters high perch on the hill. It has a cobweb of narrow lanes with havelis, five interconnected palaces and three beautiful Jain temples dating back to the 12th to the 15th centuries.
The golden fort built of sandstone on the Trikuta hill, seems like a majestic structure standing out of the sea of sand. The fort is protected by the rugged high walls and approachable only through four gates, namely the Akhaiy pol, the Ganesh pol, the Suraj pol and the Hava pol. The palaces built atop the main entrance form an imposing edifice crowned by a huge umbrella of metal mounted on a stone shaft.
The fort also houses many old Hindu and Jain temples, beautifully carved havelis and the entire living area is well protected within the ramparts of the fort.
