Timangarh : where ruins is wild


Timangarh carries a combination of history and architectural excellence which is difficult to match.The fort is located at an isolated place almost 40 kms from the town of Karauli. Timangarh is named after Tisman, the powerful king who ruled over a vast area of Northern India almost two thousand years ago. The fort was destroyed by Mohammad Gori. What remains now is nothing less fascinating. This includes beautiful paintings and carvings on the temple wall, ancient stone sculptures inside the fort and the Asht dhatu stone idol. A brilliant blend of religious devotion and skilled architectural creation. Add to this a stunning view of the nearby lake and what comes up is a photographer’s delight.
