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.

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.

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.

We arrived inside the fort after walking around the side through what was not an obvious entrance. We climbed to the top stopping at the non-used water retaining pits, an ancient stairway to the bottom of one, cannonades, a cemetery and lovely sculptures and hallways. This is a restful visit and one could spend a whole day wandering and stopping... More
