One of the better forts. Well constructed , we'll preserved. Super landscapes. Moats are high and built strategically. The buildings which are inside, allowed access only if you can name residents or temple you want to visit have their own charm. The farms inside, Ashram/temple and temple are good too. Visit other places too to know the past grandeur of the old city.
Nice experience. Good views of the fort with city and ruins. Very easily accessible from roads. Sufficient parking space for visitors vehicles. Entry is free for visitors. Though most of the fort is closed permanently so we can roam around in the garden areas and at the gates. Photography is completely allowed. It has a museum. Again free visit and no photos allowed. Usually it will take around 1-2 hrs to visit with photos. Better time to visit is early in morning. Fort closes by 5 p.m.
