The Fort of the Hooded Cobra
The Nagaur fortress constructed in the 1100 is also called as Ahhichatragarh and the Fort of the Hooded Cobra. Known for its representation of extraordinary Rajput-Mughal architectural style, the fortress has been continually battle-scarred. Today, it is a renowned attraction that has been partially restored with 90 beautiful fountains in its grounds. The entire fortress is open to the much awaited Sufi Music Festival that it hosts on a grand scale.
Tourism in Nagaur
Scores of tourists visit Ladnun, the site of the primeval 10th century Jain shrines that hold religious importance. The illustrious Goth-Manglod shrine located a short distance away from the city is a major hallmark of the Gupta Dynasty. The 4th century temple honors the deity of Dadhich Brahmins and is quite a remarkable structure to look upon.
The city has a very famous cattle fair that is attended by villagers from far and wide with their prize cattle. The annual event takes place in February witnessing an exciting display of bullock and camels races. Tourists can opt to stay at the converted Royal Kuchaman Fort; a grand heritage hotel with a sweeping view of the countryside.
