  • As we all know, this fort is located in the heart of the city. Visitors can access the fort from any part of the city using the traffic instruments. Its position among the city increases its beauty even further. For visitors, it has been the center of attraction since the beginning. It is a good way to enjoy summer holidays and add another score to your knowledge base.
  • The fort is absolutely amazing. It takes a lot of stamina to climb till the top, you can count it as an amazing exercise. You might just be able to view beautiful peacocks all around. The view from the fort is absolutely mesmerising as you can see the whole city. I just loved it. Gives royal feels literally. Do attend the sound and light show for more information
