There is a picture gallery where in details of the persons who had contributed to the liberation movement is displayed. you can enjoy ..worth the trip..
  • Great place to visit. Very calm atmosphere & amazing view. Very beautiful place to click photos. Very few people know about it. As take ₹50 as entry fee you will found less crowded. Parking are available at the fort.
  • Serene place to visit. Very well maintained with clean washroom. Best thing is that the restricted areas are few here and you can roam around almost everywhere here. Once you climb up there are rooms with ceiling fans, table and stools where you can relax. Ticket is Rs.50 per Adult and they sell beverages at the ticketing counter so that adds to the overall convinience. There is ample parking for two wheeler and four wheelers and the fort is not too crowded. The roads leading to the fort are picturesque and adds to overall appeal.
