The picturesque Madhogarh fort is situated on an elephant back shaped hill, surrounded at hill slopes by the typical Indian village dwellings that reminisces a feudal bastion. A typical Rajasthani village, Madhogarh, has communities of potters, carpenters, cobblers, and carpet makers still plying their trade in the centuries old traditional way.

 

The Madhogarh Fort and the area around witnessed one of fiercest battle on earth. The decisive battle between the Rajputs and Marathas was fought in the plains of Tunga, just one kilometer from Fort Madhogarh, on 28th July 1787. The battle started at 9am and lasted till about one hour after sunset. The Rajput army decisively defeated the Maratha army. The casualties numbered in thousands. Even today in some fields in Tunga pieces of rusted battle gears and human bones are found.

The fort is a hereditary estate, belonging to a Rajput of the Bhati clan. Thakur Shiv Pratap Singh, the fifth generation direct descendant, now looks after the property. Guests are allured to experience the famous rajput hospitality and relive the glory of the bygone age.
