  • The place is really vast, with about 7 palaces, 2 temples and a few ponds. Most of the palaces are in a very poor and dilapidated condition, however whatever remains gives you a clear insight into the golden times the fort has seen as well as the majestic lives of the rulers. The fort itself is basically just a wall on the top of the hill in Kalanjar, encircling all these places and provides a nice view of the entire landscape around. The place can use a little more conservation, a few guides and a lot of signboards.
