Having featured in movies like Raanjhanaa and Laaga Chunari Mein Daag, Ramnagar Fort is an unsurprisingly magnificent monument with a charm of its own that'll enthrall you! 

The audience hall of this fort is now a museum and forms the main attraction of this place. The museum has tons of intriguing artefacts, elegant carvings and interesting manuscripts, however, the disorganised and deteriorating condition of the artefacts found here can prove to be a big bummer for visitors.

It’s a visual treat to watch the annual Ram Lila celebrations which are held at this fort and are graced with the royal presence of Anant Narayan Singh who is popularly known as the Maharaja of Varanasi. The fort has great historical significance and going by the words of the locals, Ved Vyasa, the esteemed writer of The Mahabharata stayed at this fort for many years. 

Ramanagar Fort is a neglected gem and has the uncanny ability to hypnotise everyone with its majestic grandeur and awe-inspiring structure. Watching the sun set over the bank of the river Ganga from this place is a surreal sight, so go experience it!

Location | Kila Road, Ramnagar Crossing
