Built in 1622, this fort was a gift to Thakur Dalpat Singh for his bravery in battle. Today, his descendants - the Rohet family - have done a brilliant job of maintaining, reinterpreting and reinventing the glory of those days. No new buildings have been added, instead the thirty four rooms are now decorated in contemporary chic rather than gilt-edged glamour. Simple, sophisticated motifs and murals are handpainted onto walls. Writers like William Dalrymple (The City of Djinns) and Bruce Chatwin (The Songlines) have found quiet inspiration in these grounds over the years. And if you've always wanted to learn how to cook traditional Indian cuisine, there are culinary workshops with chefs trained by the former lady of the house - author Thakurani Sahiba (Cuisine of Rohet Garh and Quick and Easy Rajasthani Cuisine).
The 17km horse ride to The Wilderness Camp, where you can stay a night in Rohet Garh-styled luxury tents.
