We visited this place for Bawey Wali Mata Temple. It is controlled by army so no one can enter in the main fort area. It is on a hill. There is a beautiful aquarium and a garden in the fort premises, where one can enter after paying small fees. It can be easily reached by public transport (mini buses).

If you are a visitor to see the fort, you will be thoroughly disappointed. The way it is structured that you as a visitor have to enter the "Mahamaya Kali Temple" which is located inside the fort and you cannot see anything other than the temple.

Just outside walls remain at this fort, located on the banks of a river & Bagh-e-Bahu Gardens by its side. But fort is in ruins & nothing to see at all. Just a popular Temple complex within - dedicated to Bawe Wali Maa, very popular among the locals.

This place has Mata temple (Bawe wali mata) inside which is very good. fort has its own historical importance. Apart from these there is quite a big garden with lots of fountain attraction keeps it crowded every time. you need at-least 3-4 hours to roam around entire garden.

In the heart of the city. An old fort is there. You can reach here very easily. A huge big green lawn and a beautiful fort is there. Kids enjoy the swings rides etc. A huge aquarium is also there. Good for kids to know about it. Nice place to relax and enjoy with family.
