This is a large fort, well preserved with beautiful carvings. Access is by crossing a lovely old bridge over the river, the views from the top of the monument are absolutely spectacular.

Entrance Rs250 & camera Rs25 Quite extensive set of buildings with a few hints here & there of how splendid they must have been.
