The Gujurat government runs this museum and is doing a poor job at it. It's closed two Saturdays per month. Who closes a museum on the weekend? It was 150 rupees for a foreigner with a camera to get in. That's two bucks and change. I wish I could say it was worth it. It's not. The sculptures are so... More

Its a nice walk along the bridge, can see lots of ducks in the water, the fort is small and the parts that are open to public are well maintained, so long as you can manage the offensive stench in the older, dilapitated parts - thanks to bats, pigeons and of course us humans Photography not allowed inside the museum...

If you are touring in Gujarat do not miss this place. The fort is nothing magnanimous but a cute little place. But the surrounding lake Lakota is astounding with the coloney of the veriety of birds. But no doubt the Goverment of Gujarat can pay a little more attention for mauntaining the place better to facilitate the migratory birds TKJagannathan

situated right in town, surrounded by a once beautiful lake that is sadly filled with plastic and garbage and a threat to the remaining birds and ducks living there, this fort has an armoury of old weapons, collection of artefacts and old wall paintings from the last rulers time.
