Forts have been of special importance in the architectural period of Rajasthan in India. From the rulers and vassals to the small feudal lords of this region, some kind of fortifications were built for their protection. If Rajasthan is called the land of fortifications, then there will be no exaggeration in it. Here some fort is definitely found at a distance of every ten miles. In the Ajmer-Merwada area of Rajasthan, in the year 1873-74, 133 complete buildings and forts were found in the physical verification of the British Commissioner. Which have been built by the rulers of the princely states that ruled before the British administration. Rajput rulers and feudatories considered it a matter of their prestige to stay in the fort and establish their dominance over more and more forts, so the power of the king and feudal lord who had more forts was estimated by their number. During the time of Maharana Kumbha of Mewar and Rao Maldev of Marwar, most of the fort construction work was done, apart from this, more forts were built by the rulers of Chauhan and Parmar dynasty than other dynasties. were also the main means.
