It is a must visit place on the lap of mount girnar surrounded by mountains. Best place for photography. View of the Junagadh city is awesome from here.

The fort really a ancient historical place. But disappointed with the way it has been taken care. It could be a better place to attract visitors. One can see entire Junagadh from there.

Visting This place can be simply avoided if you are not a history lover. This place is very poorly maintained and you will find grasses n jungles everywhere.

It was found in studies years back, but never found a chance to visit it. But upon visiting Uperkot I found it myself for the first time, the real glory of this Heritage site.
