  • Its an nice place to visit to know history more. Here we can see historical swords and war equipments used in olden days. Some of the olden temples are also seen here. Many of status we can see like gods status. Greenery grass on ground is too good. We climb the mountain here. It's an nice place who want adventure.
  • Drive to the fort was good but not really a fort. Very old temples and big lawn area with man made pond. It has museum though. No Light and sound program.
