The Fort changed hands from the Rajputs to the Mughals several times over the next centuries. The Maharaja of Jaipur finally gained control over the fort in the 17th century and it was controlled by the ruling family of Jaipur till India gained independence and all the princely states were merged into the new nation of India.
