The Fort of Mandalgarh is considered as the oldest fort in rajasthan.
To the North-West is a fort about half a mile in length with a low rampart wall and bastions encircling the crest of the hill on which it stands .The fort is said to have been constructed by a chief of the Balnote Clan of Rajputs ( a branch of solankis). The fort houses a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva and other hindu gods. There is also a large pond in the Fort which was the source of water in old times.
