Khetri Fort 
The fort at Khetri was built in 1754 by the then Shekhawat Rajput raja, Bhopal Singh (Raja Shri Bhopal Singh Shekhawat Ji Saheb Bahadur). It was named "Bhopalgarh" in his honour. It is an easy trek of 4 km from the base of the hill. The splendid view from the fort is a breathtaking experience and also includes a marvellous but small marble temple. The spiral shaped open-cast copper mine called Chandmari is a treat to eyes, when viewed from the hilltop along the boundaries of the fort. This mine has been shut down and is abandoned. There is one temple on the top which is locked for visitors.

The room at the topmost storey where Swamiji used to stay and had spiritual discourses with Raja Ajit Singhji, has been converted into a prayer room. Raja Ajit Singh of Khetri, was a great friend & disciple of Swami Vivekananda. Swami Vivekananda had stayed there three times (1891, 1893 and 1897) during his visits to Khetri. In his first visit to Khetri, Swami Vivekanada initially stayed elsewhere, which is unknown, and later on he moved to the Fateh Vilas( The palace, presently Vivekanada Smriti Mandir, Ramakrishna Mission, Khetri). During his second visit to Khetri he did stay here, in the above mentioned room, but in his third visit to Khetri, he stayed in Sukh Mahal, near Fateh Vilas.
