Dhotri Fort (Gadhi)
Fascinating Spots :

      The route from Dhotri village circumambulates a huge bastion and takes us to the main entrance of the fort. The main doorway is 12 ft tall facing northwards. There are porches built inside the doorway and the fortification wall near the entrance has a terrace room. There is a rectangular open ground in the premises at the corner of which are remnants of the building. The walls of the fort and bastions are built using white soil, stone and bricks with the bastions and fort wall having narrow windows in it.

The wall towards the right has an eastwards facing entrance to the citadel. Moving ahead from this doorway one comes across a dried up step well to the right. There are four bastions to the fort and the bastion to the south has a spiral stairway leading to the top which gives a complete view of the fort and its structure. After descending the bastion one comes across a room built in the fortified wall with a semi circle shaped roof. Moving ahead parallel to the fort wall one can see the remnants of the structure on the way to the West bastion. Here there is a small doorway covered in bushes which takes us to the rectangular open ground with fort wall on all sides and two bastions on its two corners. There is a dried up well to the right.
