Fascinating Spots :

      The beautiful premises of Pahadeshwar temple of the Ajmera Saundane village is the base of this fort. After filling enough water from this temple one has to take the unpaved path passing by the temple compound. After a 10 minutes walk there is a sheltered place where a stone is painted Iin a trident shape using vermillion on the right. This stone is referred to as “Mauli”. To the left there is another stone referred to as “Mhasoba”. The hill which is on the backdrop of this stone has caves on the mid height. This caves contains the local deity of the tribals. The unpaved path takes us to dense vegetation cover by keeping the fort to the left and the cave hill to the right. A 10 minutes walk takes us to a cleft between the hills from where the ascend starts. A 45 minutes trail takes us to the devastated entrance of the fort. One can find the remnants of the bastion and fortified wall to thee right. Opposite the entrance we see the large summit of the fort and to the back side there is a flag mounted on a height. Walking towards the direction of the flag we come across a raised ground where we can find remnants of some structures and dried up pond to the left. Moving ahead towards the right we see a Shiva temple which is in ruins. There is another pond further right from here and two water tanks further towards left. The tanks don’t have potable water. After this, reach the flag mounted area on the top from where regions of Karha, Bishtha fort can be seen. It takes about 300 minutes to see the entire fort.
