Its an amazing fort, but not maintained at all, except few sections which fall under the ASI. Better hire a guide at the gate who will charge you between 200 to 250 for a 1 hour tour. Ensure you read more about its history on the internet before you visit the fort.

You go with lots of expectations and are dispoointed at the sad state of affairs. We hired a local guide for INR 200 and that was worth it. Make it a point to hire one. Fort: maintained well. Worth a visit for its historic values. Nothing much to see but still go for it. Adi Khadi Vav and Navghan kuvo:... More

Fort has good views. The Adi Kadi Vav (step well) and buddhist caves makes it worth the visit. There is paltry Rs. 5 entry fee to the buddhist caves. The caves are not been maintained. The step well is nice and has an interesting story behind it - The king ordered a step well to be built and workers excavated... More

Interesting fort with good views. Step wells and mosque/palace interesting, even beautiful. The Buddhist caves were pretty weak and yet the only thing that you had to pay for. Too many times on our trip to India did I encounter the need to pay (a usually small sum admittedly) to enter somewhere that could have been fabulous if managed with... More

The fort is large, allow at least half a day to explore properly. There are terrific views over the city and plenty of peaceful green space. It is a great escape from the city traffic and noise! As well as the main sights, there is a small shady park near to the entrance where you can relax and you can... More

There is so much to see inside Uperkot fort and you can drive all the way around. The Buddhist caves, unusual stepwells (wavs), the awe inspiring Jami Masjid are definitely worth a visit if you are anywhere around Junagadh or Gir.

The place is impressive, both when it comes to size and history. But litter is laying everywhere and espessialy the stepwells could use a cleaning. And more signs with explanation or a good paper-guide would be nice. But it is still worth a visit.

Could be a great spot except its filthy and not at all looked after. The Buddhist caves are worth a look inspite. Its a pretty big fort, fortunately u can take ur vehicle inside, there are tarmaced roads inside. A good view of Girnar hills.
