All that remains of the fort are it's dilapidated traces, but the lush green forests with the steep slopes surrounding the fort gives it the aura of mystery and a sinister charm. It beckons a wandering soul like a destination awaiting to be explored. So indulge in some adventure and come explore the enigma of this long forgotten place
