Unlike the more recent Udai Bilas, the Old Palace or Juna Mahal as it is locally known, is no longer occupied. It is still owned by the family and can be visited only on invitation. Almost as old as the town itself, the construction of the palace was started sometime in the turbulent 13th century amongst the superb natural defenses of a rocky peak some 1500 ft. from the sea level Kuchaman Fort now a heritage hotel resort is easily accessible from Delhi and Jaipur. It is of a special significance, as it remained unconquered by either the Marathas or the Mughals.
The Fort's formidable ramparts, innumerable terraces, balconies, and viewing points along with its rich and interesting history, makes it a great holiday destination with a difference !
