Fascinating Spots :

      This fort is located on a small hill. The entrance of the fort is in complete ruins with only the main frame left. This gate had an inscription dated ‘Shake’ 1497 (1575A.D.) stating that ‘Ugrasen, son of Mansingh was very brave’. This inscription is now with the local government authority. One can see remnants of pillars alongside the entrance. There are steps opposite the entrance leading upwards and a water tank just beneath. These steps lead us to the fort top where we come across two routes. The route towards left hardly has any remains apart from the ruins of fortification wall on the edge. After this, one has to go back to the confluence of the routes and now take the one towards the right. Moving ahead there is a dried well and its depth is equivalent to that of a ten storey building. Bit further from here there is a beautiful small pond which was used to store water from the well. It can be seen that the pond has 14 corners. Further, there are remnants of mansion and ruins of bastions on the last edge of the fort. Remnants of broken pipes of the old water systems that must have existed on the fort in the days gone could still be seen.
