Situated within the Ranthambore National Park, Ranthambore Fort stands 700 feet above the surrounding region. It is believed that the fort was built during mid 10th century during the reign of Sapaldaksha and the construction continued for a few centuries thereafter.
During the 12th century, Prithviraj Chauhan ruled the region, during which the fort came under influence of Jainism. Later, after the defeat of Prithviraj III, the fort came under control of Muhammad of Ghor a Muslim ruler. The fort kept changing hands ranging from Iltutmish (Delhi Sultan) to Chauhans to Jalal Ud Din Firuz Khalji to Mewar kings to Rajputs to Kachawahas of Jaipur.
Inside the fort, there are three Hindu temples dedicated to Lord Ganesha, Lord Shiva and Lord Ramlala ji. There is also a Jain Temple of Lord Sumatinath (5th Jain Tirthankar) and Lord Sambhavnath.
