Mughal Emperor Akbar might not have known that one day his very own constructed Akbar's Palace will turn into an imposing structure and a pleasure retreat for millions of history buffs and leisure holidaymakers. This is one of the strongest forts in Ajmer that displays the brilliant artwork and architectural skills of the Mughal era.

Later in 1908, a portion of the palace was turned into a government museum, which now houses a beautiful collection of military weapons, medieval armory, miniature paintings, 8th century rock inscriptions and stone sculptures and various eye catching artistic objects.

One will be left surprised to know that

  • The palace was built in 1570 A.D. to serve as Akbar's home during his pilgrimage and casual tours to Ajmer.
 
  • Akbar's Palace served as the platform for the historic meeting between Jehangir and Sir Thomas Roe of British East India Company.
 
  • After the British occupied Ajmer, the palace was converted into a munitions house and renamed as 'Rajputana Arsenal'.
 
  • Akbar's Palace is a living example of Mughal reign and British Raj.


Located close to Ajmer Railway Station, Akbar's Palace and Museum is a elaborate platform to explore the choicest collection of Mughal objects and enrich oneself about the history of Ajmer city.
