One can skip going there, they have archeological stones whose descriptions are faded now. It's ill maintained. It was a part of our package from Damodar camp but can be skipped for sure.

I do not know why do they charge , though they charge very less, noting great about this place, just a very tiny fort, with few antique things , rocks and some wooden statues here and there, Nothing else.
