The fort complex has two temples, mosques, granaries, oil godowns, explosive storage space. It is a good place to trek. Take all precautions, as very few visitors here, so go out in group. Take first aid kit, watch out for snakes as well. The place is maintained by Archaelogoical Survey of India (ASI) just for name sake. No proper maintenance of this fort. There are some beautiful carvings.
