  • Intricately crafted marble stone walls and ceilings.... Beautiful really amazing... one must come here once
  • There is nothing much lwft to see in the fort other than the temple. One can go there if is interested in temples but otherwise nothing much to see.
  • The fort is in a dilapidated condition now. The first gate of the fort is known as Hanumanpol, which served as the entrance to the lower fort. It comprises two towers built of large blocks of grey granite. After some ascent, stands Champapol, the second gate of the fort, which served as the entrance to the inner fort.[1] There are some features of historical and religious importance in and around the fort. Achaleshwar Mahadev Temple is just outside the fort; the toe of Lord Shiva is worshipped there and a brass Nandi is also located there. Near the temple there are three stone buffaloes standing around a pond. There are Jain temples in the fort. These were built in 1513.
  • It is ancient and very beautifully krafted. Also you can see all over the abu from its top.
  • There is nothing much except for a Temple and a Jain temple on the top of the hill . If you have quite some time and strength only then, go up the hill to the Jain temple and chamundi temple. Else just visit the Achaleshwar Temple in the bottom of the hill.
