Unlike the case of quantization of cosmological spacetimes, loop quantization of black holes comes with some new conceptual and technical challenges. After discussing earlier attempts towards a successful quantization of black holes based on loop quantum gravity, we will discuss some recent developments in this direction. We will discuss a quantization prescription which promises to yield some insights on the way central singularity can be resolved. Numerical simulations based on this quantization will also be discussed.
