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.

In order to truly understand the significance of the Fort and the Buddhist caves nearby, one has to understand the history of the place. There are guides available who eloquently rattle the times gone by. The Buddhist caves is the only pocket which is well maintained, otherwise the rest of the place perpetually wears a derelict look. There are a... More

We started our visit early in the morning which was good - later it got very busy with large school groups. There are a variety of different interesting sites and it's worth climbing the battlements to get some stunning views!

It is a fascinating fort with rich history. We hired a guide, which I feel is a must to understand the history. It has the cannon built in turkey, adi kadi vav and navghan kuvo, Buddhist caves. Each has a rich history behind it, especially the story behind adi kadi vav. The sad part is except Buddhist caves, which is... More
