The walls are intact and splendid- a little bit of cement and concrete at places, but that is restoration in India.

Its an old fort, very small compared to other forts in India, the temple inside the fort is a marvelous architecture with one special type of engraving on the wall where a single engraving represent two different structures when viewed from different angle.

Nothing spectacular about it. There's a temple next to it which is good. Its dilapidated and has a historic value.
