The structure is located in high rocky hills and is thus well camouflaged. The architecture of the fort is such that the building can be entered only through the gateway in the east.

temple, temple of Goddess Durga
and Lakshmi Narasimha
temple. The Dussehra
festival is grandly celebrated in the Durga temple in the fort.
