The ramshackle, partly overgrown Taragarh fort, on the hilltop above the palace, is great to ramble around – but take a stick to battle the overgrown vegetation, help the knees on the steep climb, and provide confidence when surrounded by testosterone-charged macaques. The fort was originally built by Rao Bav Singh in 1354.

Take the path up behind the Chitrasala, then head 250m east along the inside of the ramparts and then 300m left up the steep stone ramp which starts just before the Dudha Mahal , a small disused building.

The views from the top are magical. Inside the ramparts are three deep baoris carved out of solid rock and the Bhim Burj , the largest of the great bastions (currently occupied by the police and off limits).
