The Hill Fort of Kesroli, Rajasthan dates back to the 14th century. The fort is situated on top of the rare, dark Hornstone Breccia rocks. The 50-65 m high fortifications of the fort offer some amazing views of the fields surrounding it. The seven-turreted Hill-Fort of Kesroli was constructed by the Yaduvanshi Rajputs, considered to be the descendants of Lord Krishna. The fort saw many battles and seizures. First, it was annexed by the Mughals, then Jats and then Rajputs (in the year 1775). The best period of Hill Fort was from 1882 to 1934, under the reign of Ranawat Thakur Bhawani Singh.
