“Beyond our expectations”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

The place is not at all touristy, so it has its charm.The climb to the fort is high amidst trees and rocks.There is an old shiva temple en route the fort.There is no guide there nor history written, so google the story of the fort before you go.The place is calm and serene and has a security on guard.It can be deserted at times so better go in company.

“Desserted place”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

This is about 250 stairs from the ground level. Looks interesting but no one to explain what is what.Make sure you gather facts before you be there. The Caretaker/ Security/ Guide is totally frustrated of being alone on top for the whole day. When I asked him whether he knows any historical facts about this place, he said he is sick and fedup of being here and wants to go home as soon as possible.Videography is chargable.

“Excellent butno maintanance”

Excellent art work. The fort is carved out of just a single rock. There is no maintenance and the fort is almost perished.

“Quite a climb”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

Madan Mahal Fort. Built by the Gond ruler, Raja Madan Shah, in 1116 atop a rocky hill, the fort dominates the skyline and provides a panoramic view of the town and the country side around it.

“Beware to visit this historic site”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Not a very imposing fort as found in Rajasthan or even Gwalior. Its a very small structure with lots of anti-social elements around. One must beware to visit the site only during daytime and with lots of crowd.
