Kankwari Fort in the middle of Sariska Tiger Reserve.

The fort was founded by Jai Singh I as a famine work. In the 17th century, Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb briefly imprisoned his brother Dara Shikoh in the struggle for the succession of the Mughal throne.
The village was evicted in 2009, but renovation works in the fort are going on to promote tourism. As of August 2016, only three families reside in the village below the fort, but their migration is in progress by the government.
The fort remains open from October to July end throughout the year and anyone can visit it after renting a Safari Jeep from the Forest Office.
