It is one of the best fort i ever seen in my life. The construction of the fort is very good. Also there are so many tanks (Tofs) which we can see. The main building of the fort is surrounded by water from all the sides, only one staircase joints the whole fort to the main building but nowadays government... More

I ve visted the forts of Jaipur. They are grand and welcoming. This one is completely different. It has been strategically designed to deter incoming invaders and one can clearly see it. The location, the gradient all reflect this. In between the climb to top you ll encounter steep, narrow passages where the enemy can get chocked. Their are dark... More

These are absolutely dark and u can get lost here without a guide. Meant to attack soldiers entering the fort with all sorts of techniques to kill unsuspecting soldiers. Tip the local there 50 bucks and... More

If you are fond of trekking, surely you should not miss Daulatabad fort. You need to climb up a number of steps to reach the top. Good location for photography. Various canons could be seen here and the largest canon is situated at the top of the fort. I always wonder how could those people carry such a huge thing... More

This crumbling fort is well worth a visit. It's remote location means that it is not over run by tourists which makes it very easy to wander around. The overall size of the site is massive but sadly lots of it is in ruins
