|The main tourist attraction in Pokaran is the Fort Pokaran. Fort Pokaran, the 14th century citadel also known as “Balagarh” stands as a paragon amidst the Thar Desert. The fort now attracts travellers
to stay betwixt the glorious history where each stone speaks out volumes of the past. The present Thakur Nagendra Singh Pokaran and his wife Thakurani Yashwant Kumari Pokaran have opened the imperial
gates of the stately fort to offer the traveller a feel of royalty. The well restored building hands out a view of the ornamentally carved, red sandstone Mahals, the traditional Jharokas and the grand
turrets, parapets depicting Rajput and Mughal architecture. The impressive hall, Mangal Mahal with four octangular Jharokas protruding out is where our guests are served with traditional aromatic cuisines
by the family Chef. There is an in-house Museum of the family collection of armoury, garments, miniature paintings, handicrafts and the local artistry. A feather in the cap of the Fort is “The Grand
Library” consisting of classic books dedicated to the great Rao Bhadur Rajshree Thakur Chain Singhji Pokaran. He being the most learned Rajput noble of those times, holds a prestigious place in the
book known as "Who’s Who Of India" 1946-47 edition.
Pokaran is the abode of hundreds of Damsel Cranes, Houbara Bustard, The Great Indian Bustard, and the Imperial Sand Grouse which takes flight from Siberia to the desert for food, water and to sun bathe.
It is a buzz to watch and photograph the Indian Gazelle; the “Chinkara” (deer).
The place also homes the shrine of the deity Ramdeoji who is considered the reincarnation of Lord Krishna. The fair Ramdeora is named after him, held for ten days according to the lunar calendar
in the month of September is a vibrant occasion. People visit it from all religions, caste and creed from all over India who come in colourful outfits to offer prayers.
