This place needs more revision to how it has to be maintained than any other fort that I have seen. The entry fees is low and there are not many visitors to the place. This place requires immediate attention of authorities before it crumbles down to rubbles in some or the other storm. There are some fine pieces of history... More

The reason I landed up at this place was that I had nothing else to do in Jamnagar but I was pleasantly surprised at the sight of this place....Its a small, partially destroyed fort with enough historical information to keep you occupied for 2 hours...But the surprise package of the afternoon was the number and variety of birds in the...

This place was interesting, if not inspiring. A strange mixture of things but a nice location in the middle of the lake.

Lakhota Fort and Museum is all rolled into one. The fort no doubt is a majestic structure and bears a rich heritage. A local was kind enough to explain to me the origins and the significance of the fort especially with regards to the royal family.

I thing government is taking interest to invite the visitors. the areas are crowed in around on Sunday for change of mood. Lots of people gather to meet and greet the friends The old people visit the Ram temple while young generation goes to the fort for taking photos I like pani puies, Makaii, Golas and many things being sold
