Neemrana Hill Fort, located at Kesroli is a 14th century fort that has now been converted into a heritage hotel. The fort lies on the top of a hill overlooking the village and the surrounding agricultural fields. It was built around six centuries ago by the Yaduvanshi Rajputs, who are believed to be the descendants of Lord Krishna. The fortress was constructed with an intention to provide defence and warfare. With the passage of time, the fort went under the control of different rulers. It was conquered by the Mughals, followed by the Jats before finally coming under the control of the Rajputs in 1775 at a time when the princely state of Alwar was founded.

This fort, which has seen several dynasties thrive and perish, has now been given on lease to the company, Neemrana Heritage, by wing Cdr. Mangal Singh. The fort has been subsequently restored and converted into a heritage hotel. The hotel known for its turrets, ramparts and arched verandas is considered to be one of the best heritage hotels in India.
