A Heritage Royal Resort

Built in AD 1648 and called after himself, the town and Fort of Roopangarh was constructed by Maharaja Roop Singh of Kishangarh State between the mind - 17th to 18th centuries. This is called the 'Golden Period' of Kishangarh Art and Culture, and saw to the flourishing of the world famous school of Miniature Paintings.

The nineteen large rooms are individually and tastefully decorated, keeping in mind the history and heritage surrounding it.
