Bala Quila Fort or the Alwar Fort is arranged in the Aravalli Range, over the town of Alwar. Worked in fifteenth century by Hasan Khan Mewati, it has been under the lead of the Marathas, Yadavas, and the Kachwaha Rajputs. As indicated by the Hindu Puranas, the fortification is the quality of the King. The exacting significance of the 'Bala Quila' is the Young Fort. Laxman Pole is the main metalled street which interfaces the Fort to the Alwar city.
The silver pages of history talk that Pratap Singh, the author of Alwar state entered the stronghold through this metalled way as it were. In 1775 A.D. Kachhwaha Rajput Pratap Singh caught the fortification and laid the stones of Alwar city. With a separation of 595 m, the huge stronghold is noticeable from the city itself. It gives a glorious look of the town as it is roosted on a 300m high bluff. It spreads over a territory of 5 km from North to South and 1.6 km from East to West.
