It is very nice place just in the corner of Girnar Mountain. But it is unexpectedly dirty. People throwing plastic and food everywhere and seems municipality is not taking care of it at all. Atmosphere and the View from the Uperkot Fort is AWESOME though.

it was our biggest disappointment of entire trip to junagarh & near by areas.In fact we could not find a second interesting thing/place to watch there except a cannon which was placed between four compact walls ( hard to take even picture ) The whole fort is in a shabby condition with worst maintenance & even its dangerous at some...

Uperkot fort is located at a height among Girnar mountain ranges. You can get some scenic views of Junagadh city below and Girnar mountain ranges from various points on this fort. There is plenty to see inside - sunset point, darbar, Buddha caves, Adi Kadi vav, stepwell, granary and amphitheatre. You can seep in the history and beauty of this... More

Uperkot was an afterthought - we were in town primarily for the stiff climb to the temples of Girnarji - held sacred for centuries. I had a long afternoon free and was in no mood to while it away in the hotel room. So, boarded an auto and ended up at Uperkot fort. My initial impression was 'how disappointing' -... More

You need your own vehicle if you are planning to visit these place. There are 4-5 places like "Navghan Kuva" ,"Adi Chadi Vav’", "Jami Masjid" inside this fort (at a distance of 1-2 Kms). To understand importance of each palce and history behind it you need a guide. You will get guide at enterance only but charges are high, so... More

This place is not well maintained and also well abused by the visitors as well as the local vendors. There are places inside the fort, were visitors are not allowed purely because of safety reasons. A local guide can be helpful (they will chase your car soon as you have reached the main gate), However be careful as they will... More

.. it's disappointing to see something as marvelous as this languish with almost no support. It feels a little disjoint where on one had there are the Buddhist caves with paintings from centuries gone by and then there's the fort itself that provides you a glimpse of Mount Girnar - and you're left to understand it all on your own....

This fort is actually quite interesting to those who like historical monuments however the Gujarat tourism authorities have not maintained it at all!

This is a duplicate entry. Please see Uparkot fort for my review called "An Absolute Marvel." This is a must-see place if you do visit Sourashtra.

This place was very historic.Caves of Buddhists monks were present there,it is said that Lord Buddha came here to mediate.Many kings came and went and ruled is fort.The fort is very big.But if you have a personal car then it was allowed inside.People who don't have a car have to walk a long distance.
