Revel in the architectural splendour, as you take an intimate look at this imposing fort, built by Akbar's comtemporary Raja Rai Singh. Within the fort are thirty seven palaces and pavilions. Suraj Prol or the Sungate is the main entrance to the fort. The most beautiful palaces in the complex are the Chandea Mahal, Phool Mahal and Karan Mahal. The Palaces, exquisitely built in red sandstone and marble are ornate with mirror work, carvings and paintings. An array of kiosks and balconies embellish the fort at intevals, breaking the monotony. A museum with valuable miniature paintings and rare antiques is also located in the Junagarh Fort.
