The erstwhile ruling family, considered to be the direct lineage of Prithviraj Chauhan, being unable to maintain the fort after abolition of privy purses sold the fort to the group, Neemrana Hotels that has converted it into a heritage hotel. The fort Sited atop the rare, dark Horn stone Breccia rocks, commands splendid agrarian views from its ramparts, which rise to 50-65 meters. Some distance from Neemrana is another fort Kesroli in Alwar district that is one of the oldest heritage sites. Historians trace it to the Matsya Janapada of the Mahabharata times.
