Kanthkot is an old fort about 5k.m. circularly situated on the top of an isolated rocky hill. It has walls built of massive blocks repaired in many places by smaller stones. This place was the capital of Kathis in 8th century and it was taken from them by the Chavdas. After the Chavda, the Solankis occupied the fort and thereafter the Vaghelas. Mod befriended Dharan Vaghela and Dharan gave not only Kanthkot but also his daughter in marriage to Mod's son, Sad. Sad lived in Kanthkot and made it his capital. Sad started to build a fort on Kanthkot hill but he could not succeed because a part of the wall crossed the hearth of the great local ascetic Kanthadnath. In anger he destroyed it. Then Sad's son Ful, named the fort Kanthadurg and was allowed by Kanthadnath to finish it. Bhimdev sought shelter from Mahmud of Ghazni in 11th century at Kanthkot. Kanthkot passed to the Deda branch of Jadejas and at the close of the 16th century is mentioned by Abdul Fazal as one of the chief Kutch forts. In 1816 it surrendered to a British detachment under col. East when the fortifications were razed to the ground. To the west of the hill in a ravine are two large deep wells and one ruined step well built of blocks of sandstone. On the hill are the remains of three temples: One dedicated to the ascetic Kanthadnath, the second a Jain temple for Mahavir and the third, a temple of the sun.
Roha fort is situated on the hillock of the same name 50 Kms. from Bhuj. It is connected by main road and covers an area of 16 areas. The height of Roha hill is 500 feet from the ground level and 800 feet from the sea level. Roha was the leading Jagir of Kutch state. There were 52 villages under this Jagir. Rao Khengarji I (1510 - 1585) established Kutch and he became a ruler of Kutch. His brother Sahebji set up Roha village. Thakore Sahebji fought with Raysihji Zala of Halvad and he died in this battle. After Thakore Sahebji's death his successor Jivaji built two big tanks on the Roha hill and his son Thakore Noganji built a fort on Roha hill. Thakor Khengarji was honoured by Maharao Deshalji of Kutch and he got a close place in Darbar of Bhuj. His granddaughter Rajba married with Kalapi Thakor saheb of Lathi dist. Surendrangar. Thakore Kalapi was famous poet in Gujarat. He has written many poems which are still read. He wrote romantic poems at Hohal hill because atmosphere of Roha was peaceful and close to the nature with many peacocks and other birds which can be seen here even now. Roha is called Sumari Roha after the princesses of the Sumara state Umarkot in Singh. Fleeing Allaudin Khilji, the princesses sought asylam with Abda, the Jagirdar of Abdasa, in the 10th centre. Abda died fighting Allaudin Khilji who pursued the princesses to Kutch. Consequently, the princesses, numbering 120, took samadhi in Roha which till now commemorates the princesses who gave up their lives for saving their honour.
